Stunt Bike

Can a 1989 gsx-r750 or 89 kawasaki zx-7 be stunted ? I would hate to loop my R-1 learning and I don't 3-4 grand to buy a stunt bike and a fiddy is out of the question 5'9 240ish.

Thanks

They both could but finding parts for them after beating them up might be a problem. That is why alot of stunt guys like gsxr's and zx9's cbr's of around 93-99. Finding parts is a little easier.

You dont need a reason to ride, just gas money and lots of time.

shit, i'm 6' and 200lbs, and got friends that are way heavier than ya, and we stunt stock fiddy's.

but you can wheelie almost anything... heavier older bikes will have some restrictions to go beyond that i.e. shitty brakes, heavier etc.

Ok maybe I will go to CCC and see how much they want for a used fiddy. I can put that in my jeep and drive to my practice spot.
They just look so damn small.

Thanks

you could buy a stunt bike for $1500-2000 if you look hard enough.

both those bikes make great stunt bikes. If I'm not mistaken Todd Colbert used them both even back a few years ago.

If you need parts for the gixx let me know. I got a ton.

Thanks Crazy, I looked both bikes up on the internet and they look quite stuntable although they weigh at least 400 pounds. Hey I saw a guy rock a hayabusa with no problem- so there is hope. If dude sells them for cheap I'll buy one and go streetfighter style.
