You and your bride still making a trip to the Low Country this fall?

[QUOTE=East Coast Rider;19443371]Ahem....allow me to introduce the Ole Girl

She still needs some odds and ends to finish her up completely, but this is how she looks!! I might take off the risers for the rear view mirrors, though.



Let's see:

Forks, brakes & rims from 2001 Suzuki Bandit 1200
Triples from '89 GSXR750 (top clamp is a Speigler unit with standard handlebars.)
Speigler stainless brake lines
Vance & Hines Street megaphone 4 into 1 (32lbs lighter than stock 4 into 2 double walled chromed steel exhaust))
Shorai LiFe battery (17lbs lighter than factory lead-acid battery)
Vintage Mikuni VM33 smoothbores (should be good for a few more ponies)

SO, She's substantially lighter than factory, with a bit more power & has markedly better suspension and brakes...the great thing is that it can all be converted back to stock in the matter of a couple hours. All these mods were straight bolt up. No mods to the frame.

That's a fine motorbike. Are you a dangerous man?

Me? Dangerous?

Perhaps, but I try to keep it under control

I've been pretty lazy about loading pics here, but not so much onto my facebook acct. Some of these will be familiar to those of you with whom I am friends on FB.


A bit of fall colors 'Bout as much as you're likely to get around here....







Sunset @ Bonneau Beach, on Lake Marion



Finally, another cooperative dragonfly...





FYI, my Canon 20D seems to have crapped itself. These were all taken with the little Kodak P&S...
