2 great examples of 900RRs men. This is how older bikes can and should be taken care of! Good luck to both of you.

Here is my 95 CBR900RR i found her in a field in Kentucky when i was driving threw. I contacted the owner to see if he would sell it considering it was the same year i was wanting. I ended up buying her but she had set for quite a while, so i stripped her down and started rebiuding her. It toke a while of working on her everyday and loads of new parts. And lots of help from Vinman and JC, but today im glad to say she gets lots of looks everytime i bring her out and she get alot of respect from the amount of power she now produces. I am happy with the build, even more with riding her down the streets. No longer will she be neglected, she is kept in a heated/cooled garage when im not riding and im very attentive to keeping her clean. I have plans on some other work for her a project is never done Thanks for looking!

Thanks Mike. I try to keep it clean. I swear I wash and use Honda polish every other time I ride it. lol
The Rims are what sold me on the bike. I looked for 4 months when I was ready to buy on. I wanted a 93 in R/W/B. (which I still will find)
The 2nd owner had it for 10 yrs. I plan never to get rid of it.
Your ride came out badass. I would like to see it in person one day.
