I appreciate the kind words! I am glad you guys like it. My girlfriend says quote "It looks mean and ugly and stupid". Well, I guess that's a good thing right?

The monoshcok was easy....just welded a hoop to the swingarm and then a mount on the frame. And yes, I try to make everything I do unique...I hate having something that is exactly the same as everyone elses.

I really want to add some new upside down forks from an R6/GSXR whatever. That may have to wait until next winter.

I got my right reaarset and brake master cyl in the mail yesterday. I need to pick up some more welding wire and then I'll get that mounted. Once that is done, I can pull everything off and paint the frame, motor, swingarm, etc.


For some reference, here is my last XS, an XS1100. I went full blown Cafe on that one, its the bike I'm wheeling on in my avatar. This 850 will have more of the fighter look to it. I think I am going to go white and red......but black is just so damn awesome. idk.

hahaha, that's hilarious :LolLolLolLol: and hey, regarding your idea for inverted forks, check out my latest thread as i just put a set of '07 gsxr forks on my '81 kz440. they look amazing. i would definitely recommend something like it for your build!

Its hard to believe that the bike you started with will or even could turn into something fantastic. Major props on the buell front end btw. I'm a fan!

Man, all your guys comments are motivating to finish this thing. Thanks!

My question is, what color do I paint it? Black? Like my previous bike and like everyone else?

Black is cool, but there are just so many black bikes.....
