I have to agree with Mikaw, very nice looking bike! You almost have to do a double take when looking at it to make sure of what you are seeing. I like it!

Thanks guys
I definitely dig the stance
This Vietnam seat is awesome as well for $160
Uses all factory connections and the leather is superb

Probably a few days out yet
Will post a better video
But she hits the revs hard
Going to be a fast bike for sure

Appreciate the comments guys
I’m excited to ride it and even more excited to give it away
Rearsets will be installed soon along with the rear brake line and fuel lines
I had to get fancy with the shift linkage using some spares I had from my racing parts bin and spare zx9 parts
This bike will be (can only be) set up gp shift with the set up I’m running in order to clear the side stand
I’m used to it as all my bikes are this way but hopefully dad can learn it quickly haha
Will post more photos soon
I also opted to run a carbon fiber inner rear fender and I couldn’t be happier with the fit and finish
Nearly there now, hoping to be riding by Friday

Sounds as good as it looks. Please pardon me if you already covered this, but what did the builder put into the engine?

Thank you
Just off top of my head.... bored to 1075, Wiseco pistons, aftermarket cams and built top end, built transmission, full rebuild from bottom up. I’m sure there’s more and I have a list somewhere but it was torn down to nothing and put back together with all new top shelf parts. She’s going to be a screamer.
