i was just informed via PM that i was even in the ROTY. I am extreemly honored to be here... i thought i would post up some info about the bike.

I wanted to kind of give the specs on the bike, as well as a monetary break-down of what was done, in closing. this isnt all of the money i spent, but it is the bulk of it.

So, here goes.

Parts and peices from:

$600 93 cbr 600: engine, frame, tank, front wheel, rear brake caliper
Traded 2003 gsxr 750 calipers
$120 2002 gsxr 1000 forks
$40 2008 multistrada rotors
$200 2008 mt-03 headlight
Free 2005 Sv650 master cylinder and ss lines
$9+$160 for welding cbr 954 header
$20 2006 gsxr 750 seat
$25 cbr 929 rear shock
Free cbr 600 f4 rear shock linkage
Free 96 cbr 900rr rear wheel, swinger, and rear master cylinder (Thanks fslflint)
$40 integrated cbr 600rr tail-light
$50 Cbr 1000rr Jardine Ti exhaust (brand new)

Then there was all the other stuff
$50 engine gasket set
$200 Koso XR-SR speedo
$150 to get all the CNC'ed parts anodized
$120 paint

$15 bar-end mirrors
$7 shifter shaft
$25 Sprocket set

$2251 total

Now, that doesnt include the custom machining and fabrication. that would include:
