Hi everyone.

I'm Ethan from Ireland and have only been riding bikes for 2 months now. Started off on a 125 but got bored of it after a month and got a 2002 Honda CB500S. Ive already started streetfighting it.



Fitted new renthals yesterday.


Waiting on new mirrors and grips now.
Might try to make a mask to fit the dominators soon.

Thanks Mike.

Need some inspiration for making a mask. I'd rather find something that I could make fit than build one from scratch as I can't be arsed dealing with fibreglass haha, it's such a pain to work with!

I'm looking at paintball masks on eBay. I'd love to chop it but it's my daily ride so can't really do a tail swap :( not yet anyway

Going to look at a 97 vfr 750 tomorrow with a charging problem and sticky brakes.

Cheers. Didn't end up getting the vfr but going to look at a 97 cbr 600 on Sunday. The guy who has it confused me though, he says it's an f2 converted to an f3. He reckons it started as an f2 and it now has f3 front and rear with the f2 engine. Pretty sure a 97 would be an f3? Any way I can check when I see it?

Got myself a bit of a project. It's a 91 gsxr 750 that needs abit if work.

- sticky brakes
- indicators don't work
- brake lights don't work
- needs tyres
- needs service
- 1 key broke off in tank
- tank needs to be cleaned and flushed
- dodgy paint job
- rusty dominator headlights
- oil leak somewhere

That should keep me busy and then I can start chopping and changing things on it 😃

Here are the crappy pics from the advert.




Just going to be doing maintenance work on it before I start doing anything nice with it. I dont have a shed or garage either so its going to be a driveway build which, in Ireland, could be slow due to weather.

Thanks Robbo! Looking for some inspiration around the forum now while I'm at work. Would love to be tearing the gixxer down but have a 12 hour shift today 😞
