My 600F was just too much for me to keep it going, she's old and always in need of some love so I had not ridden in a few years, but that didn't stop me from saving up and back in April finally picked up this. It's not brand new and all fancy, but she is to me.

As if I need another project, I'm not giving up on the Hurricane, I'd like to build it back up someday back to original, I still have all the parts but they need some love too, but for now at least I can ride.

Really loving the color scheme!

...and let's be honest here we all love to wrench I just "finished" a two year build about a month ago, wanna take a guess how long it took for me to start planning the next one?

Almost two weeks

Thanks. It's just matte black and red, the orange is just from my shop lighting. I like the matte but it has no protective coat so it can get messed up easily. Trying to figure out if I can coat it with something. I think a fuel spillage would eat this right up.

I like it! Like you, I haven't ridden in a while (despite having two bikes) because of projects. I'm glad you're getting back in the saddle though!

Looks great! Don't worry about it not being new as long as you love it that's all that matters. My bike is an 02 and just got rebuilt a little bit from an accident and I love her even more now than before the accident.
