holy crap, another VA fighter fan!! where you at in VA?

the bike looks sweet! keep the pics a-comin. those old gpz's were cool bikes to start with, that one's even better.

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

Hey guys, thanks for the good words. Now that im home from work i can post a bit more.

skroozeloose, im in blacksburg, i work for VA tech.

The bike obviously is a gpz, enrico, the front end works great and its all i could come up with when i started the project. Ive got around $400 in it right now with the mods.

The front is a 90gsxr750 unit, graves clip ons, tokico 6pot calipers, floating 320mm rotors, braided lines, gsxr 17" front wheel. I made the steering stem from an old kzstem and used the gpz bearings and races. I modified the top triple, removed the key loop and casting seam around the entire triple. The lights are hella driving lights with a homemade clamp.

right now im down to finishing the paint work, finishing the wiring and sourcing a few more parts to move on with it. I started it several years ago a did the suspension mods then rode it for a year. I pulled it off the road in 2003 and its been parked since then. I started working on it again about 6 months ago. Here are some pics of it after the suspension mods.



Rear is a 95gsxr750 arm. 5.5" rear rim with a 180/55x17, older style gsxr rear caliper. I made the spacers, chain adjuster blocks, lower chain roller, suspension linkage. Have a fox shock 8 clicker on there.

I shortened the frame 7". Custom hand made fiberglass tail section. I modified the stock seat and seat pan to fit just have to make the seat cover for it. Made the rear sets using fzr600 foot pegs and a gsxr rear master. Made a manual cam chain tensioner for it so i could fit the gsxr1100 flat slides. I made a black acetal shock res clamp that clamps the frame, i have some in progress pics but no finals.

Last weekend i made exhaust dumps for it, running 4-2. I also fiberglassed an undertail but its not done yet.

I painted the bike with duplicolor spray paint. Its not done yet as im trying to do the final sanding and clear(no clear in the pics). Im sure there is a ton more that i forgot as its an ongoing project.

22.9degree rake angle, 3" trail, 56" wheel base, 54degree lean angle, 52.5% front weight bias, wet weight is about 400lbs right now.

here are a few more pics.


















in that last pic you can see the stock tail light where the battery should be, thats not how it sits now, the tag goes there and the light is actually going to be a tag frame with leds all around it to keep it clean. I still need to make my lcd speedo/tach unit that goes where the stock lcd pod is on the tank.


I hope to get it done soon so i can start riding it again. I let it sit for way too long!
