My turn lol...

It's a Martek frame and gull wing swingarm, GSXr 1000 USD front end, Marchesini wheels, and a Bandit 1200 engine.

Martek no longer exists...they were well known for quality, but also reknowned for their long wait lists and turnaround time. From what I've heard, they were great engineers and fabricators but poor business folk and customer service reps.

Found another example...

Ok so if they are out of Biz then I can copy their concept and fab my own frame then huh?

I think I will use a R-1 Engine if can find one. If I can find one here. Hard to find much of anything worth a shit, but I will design around whatever engine I can get.

Still a year away from all that though... I got rear sets to build now the fighter will have to wait a bit more.

In the mean time I think I will find a local piece of shit 4 stroke and beat the fuck out of it trying to perfect my wheelies and endos.

Thanks for the insight and the link

yea actually I can get some dirt bikes. I bet my buddy will sell me his he just got #1 in China on a 150CC this past summer. He trashed his a bit but it runs well and I will just fuck it all up some more anyway.

Problem is if I am out somewhere trying to practice then I will have a crowd of lookee-loos "watching the foreigner". I hate an audiance while I am tryig to learn something.

NICE, it looks like that frame could take a serious beating and not bend or crack. is that a 954 tank?

everything looks fantastic.

the tank is made by the same company that made the frame...a direct fit for it.
