I got out of the car , reached over for a 12 inch piece of glass.
Talked to this guy and he said it wasn't bent and it was. Look at one
of the pics and you will see a wave on the brace.

The forks are off too... straight glass and bubble level will never lie.

37/11 final drive
Think the trans is shot. He left the boot off since he changed over
to a speedo only. Left the vent hole open and he didn't even knew why/what that
vent was for. Missing the gages/ chopped the wiring. Gas tank was dented with
the triple tree fro FZR. The brakelines are questionable . Fuel lines were off and tank was
drained.. but smelled like paint thinner.

He will some sucker to but it. Nice thing were the rims. If I purchased it .. I would have taken the shock mounts
and improved on it. The rear sets were nice .. SO MUCH WRONG WITH THIS BIKE.

My ears were burning. I've looked at this thread 4-5 times today looking at different parts of the bike and it does not look familiar. There was a similar bike built in the early 90's by a dirt bag that would come around the shop looking for cheap parts and free advice but I don't know if he ever finished it. He is serving a life sentence so I would not know how to ask him.
