Just put on the fork gators (thanks to kokomochandler) and wrapped the headers... Tryin to get a little bit of progress every couple of days.

Just moved some stuff around and did some cleaning, new bar ends and grips and did an oil change. Ive got my headlight on the way and its in the back shop with the forks off and puttin the gators on. some time later this week im taking it to the house and choppin off the tail.

2000 Bandit 1200, 4500 miles.
Just picked it up and im not lookin like a retard anymore. Runs like a dream just ugly as fuck... so i already tore off the dirty bars and put on some F4i clip-ons (sorry guys i hate dirtybars they dont work for me). chopped off the tail until i can afford my tail section. the pic below shows somewhat what it will look like but there will be some changes.

WERD!!! back in the game already and perfect time to start choppin this thing up.

EDIT-------->>>>>>>> more realistic pic ( you can see some of the details better)


this is what the poopy thing looked like when i got it

Dude, progress already. Nice dent! That thing is def ready for a fightering. It looks as if it has been living the life for some time already. I am a fan of the color as well. I know its stock but keep it!

yeah i dont fuck around when i have money i could completely build this to my dream bike specs in two days( if i had the money for the parts). But this will have constant progress. The guy i bought the bike from just opened the second motorcycle dismantlers in Sacramento( he's hookin it up bigtime) today i got a Rear set, cluch lever and master, and a pair of CBRF4i clipons for $35!!!!

DOES NOT LOOK AS COOL,I AGREE,BUT THAT WILL BE A LONG REACH TO THE BARS,MAYBE CLIPONS LIKE A 2001 GSXR 600 WILL WORK BETTER.THEY CLAMP UNDER THE TOPJOKE,BUT COME UP A BIT NEXT TO IT.OTHERWISE SOME STRAIGHTBARS WILL WORK,JUST RIGHT.

to let you know when you go wackin the frame. the top subframe posts are welded on so just cut them and file it down. the lower legs are part of the frame and hollow behind it. its about a nice square half inch hole. just use a mild steel plate cut to the size and weld it. it took me an hour maybe to do mine.



the last is the 92 gsxr 600 i stole the forks from. all i did was swap the stem, use my bandit wheel which is the same but had to use the gsxr rotors cut they are shallower. and hyabusa calipers will bolt right up but gsxr 1000's will not. i have a pair of the black boots you want. if you give me an address ill try to get them to you. then you can paypal me a couple bucks for shipping if you want but you wouldnt have to pay me first cus im not that dependable. i still need to send the seat pan to the lost mcgoon. i said he could have it free. but i need to save a couple bucks for shipping to texas.

Looking good so far. If it turns out as planned it'll be sick as shit! I don't know what kind of tail that is, but I want one!

The tail is gonna be a Hand tooled leather w/ a chopped up pocketbike tail coming off the back and im gonna use a MTB air shock w/ remote lockout and damper... So the tail can be nice and soft or i can lock it out.
