So I bought a 2006 Yamaha FZ1 for two hoots of a ragman's trumpet - a Cat C that lost it's fairing (no big sacrifice there then..) and now has the shield-shaped headlight fitted from the naked. It's real clean with only 25k on the motor - sounds nice and whiney!

Figured out a link pipe and another SC can - maybe cut the link and shape it so the whole gig kicks up a bit (?), all held together with springs..



The subframe looks like an easy modification - yet to decide on a tail (Maybe new gen R6 with the aerofoils kept in place..Yan! :)

As for the rest, we'll play it by ear..as they say.

Decided on a retro tail vibe again - XJ550 Seca...not a ton of miles away from the look of the CB900F unit. Short and squat will be the language once again..



Standard subframe chopped with trellis detail - a bridge would be on the end..



Then there's the Multistrada subframe , comes in two bits - L & R. Interesting shapely exotica. Might work?



Honda 650 Transalp belly pan/sump guard - could be a number board 6 projector headlight unit - cut n sculpted into 2 vented detail side panels (meshed) - cut n sculpted into cool vented radiator cowling (meshed) - or what it was intended for, but meshed...(?)



couple of rough rear end mockups

(bit like a Monster)



XJ550 stylee



Thoughts?

This is how it looked in the advert and how it stands at present (couldn't be bothered going downstairs and pulling the cover off - stupid cold outside!)



It's really clean and even the rear shock is in nice condition - obviously a well looked after hing.
