Ok all I thought I'd share this project I've been working on with you nice people.

Don't see the gsx1100f streetfighter over here in the UK most are used for getting the engine, so just to be different I've gone for making one as a streetfighter.
So the plan.
Uprate the running gear.
As I don't have the gsx motor a b12 motor will be used.
A different seat/tail unit.

To start, frame.

I'm using gsxr600 srad running gear but with the 750 6" rear wheel.
I was going to use b4 rear sets but change my mind on that but the b4 rear sets do bolt straight on.

One reason I changed my mind was because the wider gsxr swing arm hit them.
So first steps, bottom yoke stem swop which I've used a gsxr1100 slingshot stem as I had one.
Then sort the swing arm. Needed to make some top hats for the swing arm pivot spindle.

Not sure if there is a limit for pics per post so sorry if I'm doing this wrong.
So, as the swing arm is needing a bit more space around the footpeg area, I had to make some, so I cut some of the frame foot peg hangers area away.

Also cut the rear sub frame off ready for the new one to be fitted, and I'm going for a gsx600f seat and tail unit.

I'm going to cut off the area painted grey.
Made some plates to fit inside the top yoke (gsxr600 srad) to convert them into standard bars instead of clip on type.

So this what it looks like at this point

Then time to fit the engine and start sorting exhaust, oil cooler etc.
The exhaust I'm using is a unknown gsxr 4-2 (think it came off a water cooled)
So had to open the down pipes up a bit to get them to fit the b12 head, then make 2 link pipes and fit the end cans.

Had to fit spacers for the down pipes to get them to fit as well, also had to change the b12 sump and pick-up for a gsxr 4-2 type.

Then the link pipes.

You can see in the pictures I've also fitted the gsxr aftermarket rear sets.

Keep looking at it and thinking it looks a bit standard ( even though it's now where near standard) so as I don't need a twin seat, think of cutting it down to a single seat?
What you all think?
