:thumbsup:
hahaha, this is gonna get fun.

hello, i started riding a pull start minibike when i was 7, & haven't owned a 4 wheeled vehicle since i was 16. i'm 22 now.

march 1st 2009 i was hit by a drunk driver totalling the bike & giving me a hell of a headache.



anyway, i've got the bike running again, & am relieved to get all the fiberglass nonsense off it. i really need to get some up-to-date pics, but these are from last week & now i'm down to details.





just for reference, here's a before shot.


since then, i've relocated the radiator reservoir, lost some more useless brackets, lowered it a bit & softened the shocks. this thing has gotten a bit lighter.

i built the 'muffler' from a louisville slugger, piece of a doorknob, & some dish scrubbing stainless.


future plans are:
bobber tail, stainless lower bodywork, & to lose the cat. gotta mount front blinkers for it to be legal...

take notes whoever reads this. never ride w/o a helmet. even at low speed.

that helmet saved your life man. (duh heh)

oh, no helmet. i got dropped off at my house from a bar (i'm not that much of a drinker, but better safe than sorry) & had left my house keys at a friends house. i was on my way home from picking them up when i was hit.

wow. thats why i wear my helmet. cool scar tho, as my mom used to tell me- scars add character (not that we dont have enough already).

youre lucky to be alive bro. member that next time you think about not rockin your lid.

soo the fighter is coming along. whats all the little green bits in the last pic??? i love black and green, so if thats your scheme, run with it.

i was wondering why you were softening and lowering the suspension??

thanks again.

i know i looked like a shoei ad, & wear my helmet everytime, but the night i didn't i ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. there's a fist sized dent in the tank from the first time i took the bike down (dude pulled out in front of me on my way home from work so i threw it down to keep from going under the suv beside me), so it didn't scare me too bad.

& when i get some better pics i'll get a better tire shot, i ride this thing like my name is stoner.

oh, the green markings are from the insurance adjuster. progressive completely fucked me. in line to take them to court...

Whats the deal with CF cash?


it won't really matter either way, someday i'm gonna blow the engine & it'll only be a series of paychecks until i stuff a 13b rotary betwixt the rails.
