So i inherited this project from another member Haelo...

[haelo's buildthread]
http://www.customfighters.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4353


heres how she sits now..








This is my first Zuk, as well as the first busa i've ever ridden! The bike is definately going to be FUN. So far its been hard to keep myself moving at a safe ground speed, but whatever.

Im very excited for this project, as Im so sick of seeing the Chromo busas out there. this is and will continue to be something very different. I dont yet know exactly what i will do to it, im still gettin a taste for the bike, and it for me.

first up for mods will be exhaust...bikes missing the left side midpipe and the right side seems a bit too restrictive. I ordered some slipons that im sure will take a bit of work to fit, but should be sick when i get it sorted...only problem is the pipes are on backorder (supposedly only for a couple weeks, but we shall see)

Re: 929_adams 2005 BoOsa fighter!

so i gave the BoOsa its first (i presume) bath ever this weekend. found out a couple things.

1. the frame is silver.
2. the wheels are glossy black.

haha. looks nice.






THEN... i decided its not going on the road this year and started pulling a couple things off the bike (lights, head and tail) and i realized that haelo was not kidding when he told me the bike was built with 'fuck-its' (as we call them. aka zip ties) yah. fuck-its and electrical tape.

:D

Fast as fuck tho

I can send you more of those clamps I used for the headlights if you want, they'd look pretty good powdercoated with prettier bolts

It's probably like 8 pounds lighter now that it's washed

I would occassionaly go to the car wash and use one of the hoses to spray it, soak everything with simple green, scrub some parts with a toothbrush, and then spray it again

Re: 929_adams 2005 BoOsa fighter!

well....my ultimate goal will be to create it out of all metal if possible...just so i can say fuck plastics. ahha. but if its real nice mbe i'll do a couple fiberglass repro's of it after.

i may end up throwing the shit away and starting over. we'll see. im just excited to be doing work on this biatch finally.

Seriously. that would be quick and easy and still have a cool effect.

Adam, go get some window screen and wrap it over your frame work. That'll give you a constant shape. Then you can lay whatever you want over it to cover it up.
i got it already.....planning to screen it then foam it up so i can make the shape. then lay glass over it.


or just try out the metal work and cover it up and weld.
