    The steel bent- over bike is not terrible, but the writeup makes me want to smack someone in the mouth.

    Actually, it looks 'nice' and is proportioned pretty good, but, is pretty terrible.
    Swing arm is about 4"~6" longer than stock, less fork offset means it has more trail.
    Cafe bike that steers like a supertanker.

    You forgot the terrible FZR 600 stock shocks. I mean plum awful. The hot setup used to be to throw the stock ones in the garbage and use forks of a gsxr.

    I am surprised that they didn't use the swinger of an fzr400. They are shorter and aluminum, use all the same geometry, and bolts in anywhere the 600 arm bolts in.
