Looking good mate,

There must be some satisfaction in resurrection of an old beast.

I am Currently working on a 96 ex Police ST1100 at the moment .

Funnily enough as it is not an abs bike it has 41 mm forks as well. in 96 the non police bikes went to 43 mm here in Oz. Now I wish I hadn't of parted out the VTR forks when I did a USD job on the Storm. I had 600 f4i calipers as well that I sold.


One thing that I am impressed with on the Hondas is the build quality..

Keep us posted on your adventure with the sofa.

Front end now installed in the big CBR now affectionately known as the Super Sofa, because in this day and age it no longer lives up to its Super Sport moniker

Check under the arms of the swinger, Ive had a cbr6 that was rotted through half way along, but didnt realise until I took a rotary wire brush on a grinder to the paint, I then did the same to the 1000 and it had a couple of small holes.
They rust from the inside out so by the time the bottom has perforated its pretty thin.
Thing is, I looked up inside with a torch and it looked ok.
One side on the 6 had the bottom 3/4 gone completely, but the handling was ok.
I welded a strip along after cutting the rot out.
Thing is, I was doing 130 a couple of days previously ....
