Information: I know it´s a streetfighter and I´ve never crashed one to make one ... I just like ´em this way, okay? :-)
This wee beauty is my attempt at fitting a half decent sports bike with a forgiving side to the dwarf wife (or "small pilot" as the local dealership politely puts it) who´s 5´ on a big hair day. Salvage title, cheap, lower, lighter, smoother (under fairing these things are dog ugly!), shorter ... that was the basic brief. The front fairing will go once I know everything is safe and reliable and just a tiny white faced speedo (and 4 foot hacked out of the damn wiring harness) will smooth the front out. The rear subframe will be covered in a 1-piece ally diamond-plate sheet and there´s a rack/pillion seat base that slots into the back for those less rapid rides.
Oh and because it´s the wifes, the colour scheme will be up to her. The concept of "looking like a Snow Leopard" means it should look ... well, interesting. Although I´m drawing the line at attaching whiskers to the nose fairing.
All this for less than $1500! :-)
I´ll let you know how it turns out...
