Good evening, all!

Well, after lurking for some time now, and dabbling in the For Sale/Wanted section, figured I would PROPERLY introduce myself here. I just recently started into bikes about 2 yrs ago with a 96 Katana 750 I got a killer deal on, and kinda went from there.....

Here was my first bike ever.
Before:


After:


Restored after about 5-6 months and made a 500% profit


Now I've got:

2001 SV650 wrecked track bike, returned to service as a streetfighter

I've since custom-cut some dogbones 3/8" shorter to raise the rear-end 1.5"-2" and chopped about 9" off of the SBK pipe.





Finally, my 1991 Katana 600 barnbike, returned to the road

Currently has a R6 hi-rise pipe and M4 muffler on it, now in the midst of restoring the stock fairings and thinking of restoring it's stock look (maybe)

I definitely look forward to hanging around and HOPEFULLY help fellow members here where and when I can. I've worked on several 80'sand 90's Suzukis (except fuel-injected), and know my way around the SV pretty good, along with 150cc and 250cc scooters.

Thanks, all!!!

THERE HE IS!!! Welcome to Custom Fighters. Whats the plans for the SV?
Thx. Was THINKING about taking it back to an "S", but it's hard to get everything I would need/want for it(fairings, inner front cowl brace, gauges, etc) for less than a grand all-together. Gonna keep her a fighter for now.... I might move the cheapo fighter headlight setup to the Katana and get a nice Dominator headlight/windscreen setup for it. :)

Currently has a '01 GSXR front and rear end on it with an Bandit1200 shock on it. As with everything.....time will tell. ;)


Thx again!!
