I finally finally finally did it, I bought a cheap as shit bike ($400 cbr600). I upgraded the front end to a 97 zx6r with my own clamps (I wanted cartridges). and fixed the back (someone put an f2 swingarm on it and the geometry didn't work right) - I had to machine a new dogbone link and move the swingarm link mount a bit to get the right rate, also ordering a slightly stiffer spring as the specs are 130kg/mm and what I've got measures 100. engine runs, brakes work, chopped up the wiring harness to just the minimum, going to fab a quick belly pan next. now I plan on running as many track days as I can this summer, and I'll be retaking my racing license, the whole point of this bike is to ride and race a bike that I absolutely don't give two fucks about, so I can learn how to ride well and only be afraid of hurting myself, not hurting a pretty pretty bike.
