Hi folks. Back on a bike after 12 years without one. Always been into my Fighter style bikes , last being a nice Z900 and gixxers before.
Now have a great 600 Bandit as a project. All going well just after some info on how to fit the GSXR M forks i have for it. Ive asked in the other forum so hopefully get that out of the way.
Bike has a 1200 back end and will be in fresh gloss black , powder coated swing arm etc. lots to do and i dont want this to be a long project.
I read Streetfighter mag in Uk , glad to find a good site.

Cheers Dan

Pics of bike Not a million miles off what it will be. Just picture USD forks.Everything bar the wheels and nuts and bolts will be gloss black. Wheels will be polished and stainless fittings throughout. Seat is a modded RGV unit that has since been cut to suit. A little more work is needed but hard work done. Also frame left stock although has lost all the fittings i didnt want. The usual twin headlights and a few choice bits will find its way on. Can will go under frame leaving back end clean and high. After 12 years without a bike i'm well happy with what should be a nice trick 600Bandit.







The before pics!!!!

Way i look at it is that its a good starting point. Will be a tough looking bike hopefully. Aiming at 4-5 month build. Once ive got over the forks issue i'll be flying along with it. Looking forward to seeing it rolling , just bought all the front end m bits i need.

Take it easy

Will have swingarm out this w'end , remove all wiring and finish trimming frame ready for re-powdercoating.

USD Front end will go in for trial fit over the following weeks , can't wait.

Take it easy
