hey up

my name's danny im about to buy a zx6r i have had bikes all my life heres a pic of my current project, i take crappy bikes and build them back up before they end up on the scrap heap
its a 1985 gsxr slabside with a few modifications, currently up for grabs on that site


another project i started to build is this 1999 bandit 1200 but thats nowhere near completion and is about to go to my mates


and this here is my next project.... im told she is an ex race bike and she is very clean and has had a few things done to neaten her up... im hping to fit a 636 tail to her and give her a shiny new coat of paint possibly reve red bull colors
not sure of her year as she is on a Q plate but i would say somewhere between 95-97 ?
when i get her ill post some better pics this one is a bit bad as its off me fone and i was more interested in lookin her over than grabbin the pics:)



i was looking on the net and came across this looks like its in the same shape as mine to give a better idea only difference been my front lights been side by side and the rear indicators are fitted in the cowl , other than that and the stickers they look like twins .... well kinda:coocoo


anyway off fer a mooch round the site hope to speak to you all soon!

Could be a 1994-1997 model so you're pretty spot on! Looking forward to some better pictures. We haven't got nearly enough old school sixes on the site :)

Welcome!

Yeah, i agree about green kwaka's mate! They are GREAT on TV, but too many on road!
How about some sort of RETRO 70-80's paint job on it?

been thinking about airbrushing today.... peinting the whole bike a nice deep blue than using many coats of laquer to get a good thick coating and having a dragon or some type of serpent aired on top of that and then laquer again.... the first coats of laquer should give the dragon/serpent the effect that it is floating off the bike, if i can plan the design of the dragon, then before the laquer is on i can figure where the shadowing would be and apply that before the laquer to give the ultimate 3d effect.... too bad i know not how to airbrush!

yeah ..... thats how id LIKE to do it but i cant airbrush so maybe best to look into it as id want a realistic lookking dragon done or then i may just race rep it, or just go deep blue for now and save up and find a good airbrusher
