Slingshot project #2... probably a long shot to try and get this one done as well, but I'm gonna try.

I had bought an 89 1100 Katana a year ago, intending to swap the motor into my CB900F. Plans changed and the CB is getting rebuilt with a 985cc kit, so... shenanigans!

Got my hands on a 1990 750 slingshot frame and stripped the fat Kat of, well, everything. 1 lead-filled bar end weighs almost as much as the subframe I'm adding!!

Starting from a pile of parts, the planned conglomeration breaks down as follows...

90 750 frame
89 1100 motor
CBR929RR forks
CBR600F4i wheels
09 GSXR750 tail
Swingarm... not sure yet but I have a bunch of options... F4i, 954RR, 900RR, or VFR800

Not sure on headlight yet,but have options there too. MT03, wave, or, I might stick a ZX6R upper fairing on it and go for a "speedfighter" setup.

The fairing would help to hide the speedo, and the cluster of equipment required to keep an eye on the...

TD04 turbo ;)

I've got a real nice tank for this one. Paint looks to be original, although it could be a Canadian graphic?



The frame came from Canada anyway... maple flavored :D

That's why my blue VFR took 5.5 years... I got very lost in the details.

On the upside, every time I sit and stare at it now, I have a lot of details to look at. :)

Here's the forks. Needs seals, will likely change springs to suit bike weight and fiddle with the valve stacks while I have them out.
