Re: Catman's 1995 GSXR 750 " Hard Knocks " Discussion

^^^^ Yep Yep !! ^^^^^



I went in 3 different directions at the same time in the past 2 days :confused:

1. I carved a nice little tail unit = took a few hours and some styrofome. I glued the pieces togeather with elmers glue and then carved as close to what I had sketched out, as I could. I started sanding it, but didn't quite finish the shape.

2. I drilled and lightly polished the top tripple and mounted my risers and fat bars.

3. I pulled the subframe off made some measurments, did some cutin and some figureing and mocked up what needed to be welded.

I did these quick for mock up ,so I could get a better direction then finishing any one. Then ordered some stuff.


I got the general shape of the tail.
I got figured out how the subframe is going to need be welded.
I got the bars figured out , but not all the forward controlls yet.
I will probably cut a belly pan out of the lowers
I still need to figure out what light i will use and a good powder coater
Lots of stuff to come including .......PICS ! HA:LolLolLolLol::D

I think your tail is coming along great :catman: . . . i think the seat pan area is about 6" too long. I would end the tail section even with the axle nut
:twocents:

great progress so far! keep it up! looks like Catman wants to win another one guys!!!

:metal:

Thanks, I'm Doin work !

I left the seat area big till I get the subframe finished. I plan to cut it in in the croch and leave the edges to mold it to bolt onto the tank, on the existing holes and cover that a little ?? we shall see ??
