First post but been an big fan of Custom Fighters for ages.. :metal:



Having wanted a TLs for so long I got my hands on a rat, came in boxes but the engine was more or less a whole unit.

Lots of bits missing, non runner, coolant pissing out of the oil drain, mmmmm £400.00...

I`ll have that..

Got the coolant problem sorted, popped two core plugs in the front head, replaced the lot.

Running issue, someone had dicked about with the ECU and thrown the mapping to hell.

Next was to get it temporarily on the road to see the rest of the summer out, no rear seat unit whatever, so TLs subframe and GSXR1000 K4 tail, nice, don the lot in black gloss for now.

Been riding like this for about 8 months from when I got it, insurance ran out so...

A full on Fighter project started..

I took on this basket case to transform and turn into something I could ride in anger, yet still park up in public and be proud of what I had built.

This is is how I got it.





And here is a brief build log..

Take this...


And then this happens..


Bye bye..


Hello..







Lug gone


Mount gone


Lock stops gone


Wheels ready to go


All was sent away for powder coating...

Then a full engine strip and build.

TLR headers, lose flange.



Engine in


Getting there





Finally Done...













Personally I think it looks mental..
Some wont like the headlight, maybe too old skool for you..
No pointless eye candy, every component is minimal and does its job.
Lots of hours gone into this build, trying to get things to look right yet still work.

Just needs some final snagging for the MOT..(being a tester helps.)

Thanks for taking the time to view, see you out there lads...

Welcome in! The bike turned out great,good work man!


I have a question about the yokes. The lower seems to have way more offset than the upper. Are these stock pieces to the bike? I'm needing something with a lot of offset like that on a project of mine. Thanks

They are standard yoke pal, its just the angle of the camera shot..
