names steve, been building fighters FOREVER, but just found out about this site.

anywho, here's a taste of some of my old bikes, and my current 954 project.











i also have a supermoto obsession. building a klx300r s/m as we speak. i got the bike for free, so figured i'd make something interesting out of it. i've had a ktm lc4 supermoto and a REALLY sweet drz400E that was converted to supermoto.


i've been a bike mechanic for about 10 years now, always been into building weird bikes. usually from what everyone else considers "junk".

feel free to ask any questions about any of my bikes.

Right on, another mech joins the ranks. Nice bikes man. I can't wait to start my 7/11 project (slingshot). But, I've got lots of others places where money has to be right now. Welcome aboard!

yup, been wrenching almost as long as i've been breathing, lol.

if you need any help/info/parts on that 7/11 build, by all means let me know. i think i have enough parts in my "personal bone yard" to build another one, heheh.

i have alot of projects always in the works, and i'm always coming across parts for next to nothing, so if i can help anyone, just ask, i'll see what i can do.

did i see an f4i fighter in there??

nope, never owned an f4i. there's a 954 and an f2 in there though.

you might be talking about that f3 (the small blurry pic).. thats got a complete 04 gsxr600 rearend on it. subframe and all. i built that for the old shop i worked at. we had ALOT of wrecked bikes in there, and ALOT of spare time in the winter, so we'd build bikes out of what we had laying around. one week we got in a cbr600f3 with a bent rear end, and a 04 gsxr600 that was smashed in the front. f3's subframes are welded on, so i cut the bent subframe off the f3, made some mounting tabs, filled in the open frame tubes, and bolted on the gsxr subframe. just had to trim the seat to fit the tank, and it looked like it was meant to be there.

lol.

thats a 1986 gsxr 750 with a 1200 bandit motor, 93 gsxr750 forks/trees, 94 gsxr 1100 wheels, custom db bar conversion, home made undertail exhaust, home made subframe, home made tailsection, zx7 brakes, blah blah blah.... i could take any 'busa or zx12 around here :D . that one made a dyno proven 180hp, and didn't wieght SQUAT.

i miss that bike the most. although there's almost as much work in that cafe racer i built, it's just not as apparent. (going from twin shocks with a steel swinger to a mono-shock with aluminum swinger ain't easy on a '76 yamaha)

unfortunatly, thats the only pic i have of that bike. if you cut off the f3 subframe, so that the frame just has the same angle all the way down, the 04 (might have been an 05, not sure) gsxr subframe will follow the frame perfectly. just weld 4 tabs to the frame, and the subframe will bolt on. use heavy guage steel though, as that point is gonna take the weight of the rider and the passenger. i also extended what used to be the upper f3 subframe rails to tie into the gsxr subframe for extra support. it's alot easir to see when you have all the parts in front of you.

then i just swapped all the f3 wiring and whatnot into the gsxr undertail, used a gsxr sized battery, and bam, spiffy rear end for the f3.

it's better to do it that way than to try and fit another tail to the f3 subframe. you get seat mounts, battery box, rear seat, seat lock, tail light, and everything ready to go, and it all fits together like it should.
