plans are chop the back end off and use gsxr seat with custom sub frame
hide all the wiring
rethal bars and risers
wrap the tank front fender and rear seat cowl and in a camo effect
move exspation tank
not sure on head light yet but may be one on top of the other
paint the side cases
clean the engine up and repaint
wrap the exaust
change fork seals
oh and add a brace to the swing arm make look like a 900rr as i dont wont to mess with the swing arm
oh and shortin down the loom

i think thats about it for now but theres bound to be more lol
but before all that i need cash , and paydays a week away,grrrr so thats my list should keep me busy for a while

right been doing some thinking and a little research today and i found these



there day running lights but red ones, now with a little elctronic trickary i can lower the voltage going to them so they can be used as brake tail lights, simple just a few bit from maplins, going to try this next week see if it works,
if so this is how my rear tail light set up will look under my seet



finger crossed if they dont work leds will

Nice job on the camo wrap, I normally don't really like camo but that seems to work well...

Looking smart!
Think carefully about taking the airbox off though - you'll have a pig of a time getting the bike to run right ever again.

been busy today got on with fabricating my battery box and my electircs box and yes it all fits under the tank so nice and hidden, just needs welding up,



there is a gap underneath for the excess wiring most of it should fit in there out the way





so hopfully by the week end it should all be welded up and wiring all sorted ready,
then its onto remakin the arse end
