Here's a more recent picture, taken after nomination...



If you want to know the history, check the nomination thread. I posted a few other
pictures and some comments on my beastie.

By the way, DD (my wife) talked me out of voting for nvanvylman's bike (sorry, man!)
Her logic...at least that way you'll get at least one vote, lol
God I love that woman!

Thanks, Ern

just some background from my bike:

picked her up last december, didnt run, all but the side fairings were gone, both sides were rashed and/or cracked. the PO said his buddy, whom he got it from, laid it down, but he was really vague about what really happened and what speed it happened.
didnt have any gauges so mileage is unknown, PO said 7k but i dont really believe him at all.

but when i picked her up she was fairly clean

the night i brought her home:

after about a week or so, had the carbs cleaned and she lived!
ran a little rough but carbs still needed synced/tuned

took me a couple months, and Countless trips to the hardware store, to gather all the parts i needed to make her road-worthy:

and finally, about a couple months ago, i decided to slap some color on her.
did all of the bodywork and painting myself, and no, its not rattle-canned.

the night i got it all put back together:

Here are some shots I took last week, thanks Ern for the vote of confidence... lol just fun to participate.











Im all stock with exception to the obvious aesthetic changes. OK, im running a -1 +2, 520 chain because of the adoption of the SSSA. No one made a 530 rear sprocket for the VFR750... Almost done with the mods... just on the last round of vinyl work.

Gonna take her for a boot tonight while the weather is good.

Grats to CTcbr929!! That was a tough race neck and neck with nvanvlymen.
Two really fine rides, kudos to both.

Kind of disappointed, no one seemed to appreciate sjona2011's effort. Like I said,
when I nominated him, "I dig a clean bike." Oh well, I thought it was hip.

As far as my showing, I dig the ones I got, thanks! However, I never anticipated
winning. If you look at my signature, you can figure where my prioritys have been.

Just wanted to say, "It was hip to be nominated and I enjoyed the ride!".

Thanks, to all who participated, the voters, nominators and seconds, the owners and
(of course) Kilgortrout for his continued efforts on our behalf.

Ern
