I really dig where this is heading. tell me theres some blue paint involved.
It will have the OEM bodywork. '99 yellow/white/black scheme.
Does that customer know its 2010, and that Honda built the 929, 954 and 1000rr after that fat bike?
Yeah, I think he knows.
He is just partial to this bike and wanted to build a custom one. He has another one also that he will sell after this one is finished.
Have you told him these 900RR's have no more junk yard motors?
Sorry to bear such news but these motors are becoming harder and harder to find.
Although I'm sure that's not your concern we'll keep that under our hats
I have one right now.
Yes, they are starting to get rare, mainly because the engines have a tendency to throw rods, and the cranks typically are not repairable, and new cranks cost about a grand. With all the bearings, labor, etc. it will be a $2000 job, so most people opt for a used engine.
Dude!! the sign clearly says gixxer parking only! WTF!
That's the third lift only. Funny, there IS a Gixxer on it right now.
Yes sir I've had 3 this last year asking about motors.
seems when the go it's like though the engine case.
Make sure you mention I have one.
Why do people continue to question CP's customers?
They have a bike & then they mysteriously ... get a shit ton of money at once.
Then they bring their bike in and get it chromed out, and pay in cash from a Crown Royal bag. If they bought a new bike ... there would be paperwork involved.
That is a factor in some instances, but usually not, as they just put the bike in someone else's name and can pay cash anyways. Most people just have a preference to a particular bike and want to make it look nice.
It's an all chrome bike? It's probably gonna end up a trailer queen. No need to worry about it running!
Nice work CP!!
Thanks! This will be ridden every day though.
