sub frame off

Off comes tank and rear wheel

Then top triple

I guess you can build in a living room!

Front wheel and calipers removed
Everything looks hazy from the lighting... but really, I need to clean my bike better...

Down to frame and motor

Motor out to be prepped for paint, frame and swinger will be getting sprayed too

Aftermath:


I realize there are a lot of pictures of things you guys do daily but figured I'd document as best I could. Hopefully triples will be getting drilled, painted, and dirty bars installed. Looking to machine some fork caps to fill up the gap once the stock bars are removed.

Paint schemes are filling my thoughts lately ;)

Been awhile without any updates...

Got everything painted, ended up using VHT Roll Bar paint, came out a real nice satin black finish.

Drilled top triple for risers.

Finished rear shock swap with a ZX6R shock.



Really excited to see the transformation. Contemplating ideas of what to do with the tail... anybody got any ideas?

Just snagged a complete ZX7 USD front end for 250 shipped so should hopefully have that on in the next few weeks. Planning to press my current stem out of the stock triple and into the ZX7 triple to make the swap easier then replace the stem bearings and throw it together. Pics to follow!
