GPZ 1100 - it was good enough for Maverick. It is good enough for you.

Oh yeah, that is what I get for going right off of memory.

Anyway - one of those.

VFR400R is probably the absolute best choice out of those actually - super culty and unique. But hard as hell to find a good one (at least in Cali).

Ducati 851 or Paso?

I've fully rebuilt the engine with full seals and gaskets. New piston rings. Lapped valves and seats. I've re-laced the wheels with new spokes.A
During mock-up. removed unwanted crap (tabs, mounts etc) form frame that will no longer be needed. Added (welded on) a rear hoop to clean up the back end.

Hey gents. I thought id post the finished product, for those who are interested.

Its a lot of fun. Sub 300lbs. Toss it around really easily.

Thanks guys. The kickstarter is on the right side, hidden by the carbs in this pic. Small 4 amp battery under the seat.

Well, boys, thought I had the bug successfully buried and that it would never spring to life again. On Tuesday I came very close to driving this off the dealer floor:




Thankfully sanity returned as it would have been terminal wife agro. I have a new plan and that's just to skim a c-note off of cash withdrawals for a couple years and go pay for one cash.
