Looks pretty cool dude, the name fits!
Thanks!

Forgot to mention one mod that this bike will have in common with my CBR and that is both bikes will be getting Veypor VR2 digital computers in place of original guages. Mostly adding it in place of the stock cluster on this bike to shave some weight up there. I have kicked around the idea of a full out fighter conversion then kind of realised it was already one basically from the factory with its current body work. Besides...the windscreen is nice for long distance riding.

nice put a kz1000 motor in it
Not quite sure if i would do something like that, however i do have a complete spare Interceptor suspension thanks to the '83 parts bike. What i may do is have my buddy build a chassis to accept that suspension and make use of the Honda CB750 K4 engine i have to build a CB based 'Fighter.
