GSXR 750m frame , 2008 CBR subframe (cut to fit by me then grafted on by some bloke i met in the pub), Custom yokes, & 2006 GSXR swingarm All badly sprayed with bed liner
1991 GSXR 1100 motor that still needs its final jetting
Cbr1000rr tail plastics, light, seat, infills and tray, MT03 headlight, Bandit tank, And the MkIII pesky fucking scoops. All carefully painted in grey with a twin red stripe, then lovingly fucked up for that distressed look
Flat bars, Motogadget mini clocks,Hrc rear res conversion, GSXR 750k master cylinders. Errr.....Plus probley Some other bits I nicked of mrs.bobs 750k...Ummm....Braded lines all round....

....Err... Dan moto cans, a loada lightly modified stuff, some shiny bolts I had kicking round. Some rusty bolts I had kicking round. Some other stuff I can't remember. Probley some carlessly spilled bodily fluid. More stuff I can't remember....
Oooo! Ooo!.. And the impending disasters that are my custom loom & throttle cables
................................................................................................................................
October - mule cbr1000rr - cbr1000rr



The bits I can remember;

There are a few years of modifications here, so this is off the top of my head…

Full carbon bodywork (tank, tail, mudguard, hugger, all trims and guards, fuggin love the stuff).
PIAA headlights in aluminum nose cone. LED Rear strip lights with hidden indictors just under the rear end. Lights flash for brake.
Modified subframe with carbon RC211V rear end.
Ohlins shock, Ohlins forks and steering damper.
RSVR OZ forged wheels with custom spacers, billet sprocket carrier and modified brake hanger.
Brembo Mono-block callipers
Full Akrapovic exhaust system with Leo-Vince can as the carbon end piece looked better than the Akro' one.
Moto-gadget speedometer mounted at the front of the tank, M-unit and hidden key-less G-lock. Rev-lights mounted around the top of the nose cone.
Billet top yoke with renthal drag bars. Oberon mirrors and very dirty renthal soft grips.
STM slipper clutch with windowed cover (that was a right pain the arse to do and keep a slim profile).
Carbon filler cap.
PC3 with 2007 injectors and air-box. Heavily internally modified air-box with PAIR system and flapper removed.
TenKate bell mouths, HRC cams. HRC kit ECU.
Gilles rear sets with MTM reservoir. Gilles rear wheel adjusters and lifters.
ISR master cylinders
Carbon braided lines.
Mesh sprocket cover with Renthal sprockets 1 down front 2 up rear.
Well fucked tyres.
Much messing about with the electics to clean it all up and get it all working in the way I wanted.
And other bits and bobs that you don’t see straight away and that I can’t think of at the moment…….

It's been a few years evolving and being riden at the same time so must have missed a few bits.

Toss up between ammedian and cam bandit both built amazing bikes but are also great contributors to the community so I think I'm literally going to flip a coin on this one.

After all the bullshit that goes down in this place and all the very talented builders who've left us for one reason or another it's fantastic to see twelve amazing bikes up for FOTY, again.
