Chicago Performance Latest Build

Got the need for speed? For a buy it now price of $14,500 you can pick up this never registered, but fully modified show GSX-R 1100. Featuring a full carbon fiber frame, seat, and tank, the original weight is dropped by over 100 lbs. Among the carbon fiber modifications, there are a slew of other additions. The bike was originally a project for a design thesis class at an art school.

EDIT: Actually it lacks too much chrome to be CP. Maybe Silent Alero?

2014 Honda Grom
2000 Suzuki SV650 *SOLD*
1991 Mitsubishi Galant VR4 1929/2000 *SOLD*

You'd probably never get it moving, judging by the amount of Armor-All on the rear tire.

The seat height looks to be about 38 inches, as well.

Holy crap, what a disaster. What is the purpose of the seat being higher than the handlebars? What's all the space on top of the engine for? That could have been a cool project, but it's a mess. I would never build something like that. Unless of course, someone paid me to do it.
