Im going to be building a new subframe and tail for my fireblade soon and have narrored it down to two bodywork choices but cant for the life of me decide. I think the first one looks smooth and classic but is abit big (8" high x 26" long). The second one is weird and origanal, Id deffinatly cut the fender/platemount looking piece off of it though. what do you guys think?

I voted for number 2 because it's Honda (CB1100R). But, in the end I don't think either will suit a Blade (my 2C, that all).

I've seen a 900 with the CB tail on it befor and it looked cool. It was in Streetfighters mag a few months back. Had the Cream Egg Blade on the cover. Crazy blue red and yellow thing.

Although, I always thought the Kawi tail would look killer. So that gets my vote.

I was set on the KR tail until i pictured how effin huge it is. As for bike pictures, shure ill take some but right now its just a hap-hazard filthy pile of 93-99 honda fireblade bits. Its coming togather though, just about finished the under engine can for the yosh' full system. Oh I also came up with an idea for a pillon. Im going to brace the underside of the rear part of the rail, Have hidden lugs for quick release passanger pegs and just use one of those suction cup attachment passanger pads for choppers when its nessasary.

I got all the time in the world to come up with stuff just about. I dont know if iv mentioned it already but I crashed. The bike was basicaly fine (for a shit pile of a CBR in the first place), It landed in some nice soft forest litter. It was so shitty, going for abit of a spirited ride and hit a big patch of filth on the exit of a corner and the back comes out. Now a slide is nothing I couldnt handle after years and years of motocross racing, Then it sudders and dies. Ran out of gas (didnt have the reserve on, fuck) mid slide and give a nice tank slapper then I just errored and ran wide. Got tossed into a pile of firewood! Right leg now is full of Titanium bits my bike wishes it had. oh well, iv had worse.

Id fit a R6 race tail, but of those two definitly the 2nd. But cut off the nasty plate hanger. a 900rr integrated tailight should slip right in for the finishing touch too.

Im mostly looking for a short-ish tail and one that isnt just a graft from an other modern bike.

yeah, I just desided to go DIY for now. I really dont feel like trying to make a subframe with a broken leg and I have some knowlage about it from making foam-core carbon fiber downhill skates. I might even be able to gank some CF from my sponsor...
