Go on then, even if I am not 100% sure my bike counts as a fighter, here it is more than doubling the cylinder count on this thread in one fell swoop :D

Full story is on the build thread here. It's been a long bumpy ride!

CBR900 97 forks, bottom yoke, spindle and spacers
CBR954 calipers
955i Sprint brake lines
NSR400 front brake master cylinder
JJ Machine Works custom top yoke
Apex Manufacturing riser clip-ons
CBR400 nc29 wheels and discs
CBR400 nc29 swingarm and caliper mount, with customer spacers and brackets to fit in frame

The rest is pretty much OEM, even turn signals and exhaust (though that needed adjusting to fit round the big swingarm).

Top pic for voting please :)

What's with all this blue smoke?! Cmon we can't let a damn pizzacutter win a FOTM!

Not sure the recent mods warrant a re-entry but in case here it is more than doubling the HP count in one fell swoop :D

You know the old yada yada, newest mods:

-Hi-mounted the muffler, flipped the old mount upside down, cut in half and riveted to the can thus deleting the strap mount. Midpipe self fabricated from SS & hipster-wrapped to hide the ugliness and to not burn my pants.

-Rearset frames hand filed from 10mm of 5754 aluminum, billet ADV style footpegs

-52 tooth rear sprocket custom made to order, current gearing -1/+8. New orange chain

-dragbar, clamps modified to fit the triple tree

-heated grips, new mirrors

-headlight mount + flyscreen self fabricated from flat stock + aluminum

-subframe + plate holder self fabricated

-Old tail lights reassigned to brake light duty only, tail lights moved to new dual purpose indicators

-new headlight, new rear indicators, new LED bolt plate lights

I THINK that's the most of it at least.

Pic #4 for the vote.

Is my bike ok?

I don't really have 4 good pics, the bike is muddy and it won't stop raining - so this is what I got. First pic for voting, I reckon.

Maybe not a 'fighter, but the only bike in this FOTM on the back tire? ;)

OK guys....if thats how we are going to do it this month, I can play along too.

1984 RZ350 I bought in spring of 1985.

Pulled the cats off and put a set of Toomey pipes on, then beat it hard enough to twist the crank.
Sent the crank, cylinders and head off to SPEC II (THE place to build strokers at the time) and they sent me back their stage 3 porting and tuned cylinders and head
Larger Wiseco pistons
Welded crank
34 mikunis
TZ reed valves
Barnett clutch
Fork brace
Progressive fork springs
Russel brake lines
Ferodo brake pads
All done by spring of 1986, along with a 1980's ZZ Top style paint job.

Beat it for a few more years, until I bought my FZR1000 in 1988....then it just sat.......for a LONG time....
Then a few years ago I made the deal of a lifetime and traded my stock wheels and tires for a set of Dymags from an old racebike a guy wanted to restore to original.

Which prompted me to bring it up to todays standards for it's 30th birthday....and the little bitch still screams just like it did over 30 years ago.

Use this pic

This RZ, is what gave me the stroker addiction I have today...they are too fun to have just one.:D

RZ repaint can be seen here
