Recently picked up a 95 zx6r. Ugly and spray painted with cracked fairings that were already removed and cheap walmart fog lights installed for headlights. Doing a streetfighter build.

Thanks. Yesterday I went through 5 coats of aircraft remover to get previous paint off the tank. Been repainted so many times I lost track of what colors or how many were on there. This morning I started on sanding and paint prep. Using 180 da paper and a small sanding block then gonna move to 220 paper. Just gonna do the tank for now. Need the bike rideable fairly soon. Will post pics of prep work today when the weather lets up a bit.

Sanding is probably the worst/hardest part of paint prep. You seem to be doing fine, keep it up!

Msr bars measure out like 8 inches longer than stockand probably 7 inches taller.

So should I build my number plate out of an old street sign I've got lying around or wait to find an ammo can to cut up? I'm torn.

Got the msr bars on and everything hooked up. Had to relocate where the clutch and throttle cables go. The wiring was just barely long enough to work. Actually almost everything was barely long enough to work.

This thread makes me want to find an old, cheap bike to play around with!

Got a number plate on now. Bar end mirrors came in. New grips came in and pinup card stickers came in. Still waiting on my seat.

Front turn signals and rubber ducky are mounted. Definately looks nothing like the bike it was inspired by. It would be alot different if i couldve found 3 40mm ammo cans to build my panniers and numberplate/headlight mount.
