Gorgeous bike!

I still think that is the best looking tail light of any bike...

And what eventually happened to the bike?

Beautful!

And thanks for posting the pics of your Deal's Gap Run. But like everyone else here, I'm wondering: why on earth were you working on an R6 in a Japanese Restaraunt kitchen? Also, did they pass the health code inspection afterwards?

Seeing the bike in the kitchen reminded me of the first race team I was on. The only door we could get in was the loading dock door for the kitchen so we would do everything right in the kitchen.

Great pictures!

First off, it was JAPANESE hahaha, second.........the truck that delivered the bike was a big rig so I had them bring it to me at work. It wasn't running when I got it and the company had pulled the $100+ battery out and wouldn't refund anything.............so my boss let me keep it in the dry storage out back. I collected the parts that week and the next and worked on it 2-3 nights after work (we were closed) and I'd mop and cleanup after.........the health dept. didn't know about it LOL! Either way we were always in the 90's :headbang: :cheers:

I like the bike you just built, it looks like a terror. I mean the r6 is nice, but I like the nastyness of the hybrid!
