Default The Fallen Angel- HickLife build

So i figured since I've been on the forum for about a year now its high time I posted a build up. Especially since I've been DW and the only pics people have seen is when she still had all her clothes on. Not gonna lie its probably gonna be a slow build what with money restraints and all, but it'll get done the way I want no less. So if you never saw her before here are some before shots.







After that I got a full yoshimora exhaust, some dominator headlights and a bar end mirror and stripped her down to this.


The Mrs. sitting at scraping the coast ^



I had no way of mounting the gauges onto it so ultimately they got ziptied on you can see it in the back ground of an upcoming pic. I also decided I hate silvery shiny anything but black or dark dull colors on her so as you can see the exhaust was stainless...... yuck. But nothing a little high temp paint and 74.5 ft of exhaust wrap can't fix (I say 74.5 cause I ordered 75 ft and used all but 6" of it, talk about lucking out.)

I hated the zipties from the moment I put them on there but what are ya gonna do? Take an old neighborhood watch sign and chop it up thats what. While I was at it to save some room and for lack of any ideas of where else to put the dang thing except for right in front of the key I did a little mod to remove the BAS. No pics of that just putting it out that I did it. Alright more pics.


Exhaust after I scuffed it up and painted it^


The wrap I used^




All wrapped up. You can see how little was left^


This was my first idea for a mounting bracket. Turned out it was too flimsy and it bounced around a lot.



So I did this^ it attaches to the bolts on right around the keys and then the arms go down and tie into the headlight brackets.











And that is how she sits now. I have a huge laundry list of what I want to do to it including a USD fork swap, probably from a cbr1000rr and have those powder coated black or a dark grey with fork shrouds and possibly custom milled triple clamps, frame powder coat, motor swap is being thought of but that'll depend on if the motor i'm thinking of using will even fit between the frame, swing arm swap to SSSA thinking VFR but who knows what it'll end up being, tail swap/custom tail, custom tank cover that doubles as a radiator shroud, not really a mask but more like a headlight shroud to look like slats (kinda like blinds on a window or the front of an old train. This build, since it is my first one, will test my skills, I have never done fiberglass work, never swapped a swinger and the list goes on, but I've always believed the best way to learn is to do so here goes!

Definitely thought about it, I've seen people do it. what do you do? just swap the sides and all the things on them and shave of the positioning tabs?

You don't have to shave any tabs off just switch sides and flip them upside down.

Thats right, the positioning tabs would be upside down so it wouldn't matter.

i dont know how it is on the 03-04 600rr but on the 07 u couldnt flip the clipons because they had a big rise to them so if u flipped they were way too low

No she doesn't ride like that. She met me there thats why she is dressed like that lol. Jacket, helmet, jeans and over the ankle shoes at a minimum when we ride. They dont look like they have much of a rise if any, but i have seen where people flip them and put then on top of the triple tree. so we will see how that goes
