Well then YOU of all people should understand my "KZ440LOL" project! That's the front wheel in my avatar pic.Hey, I know all about picking an ugly ass bike to build. I mean I am rocking an LTD lol
That's such a pretty bike.I had nothing better to do today so spent a good part of it searching for CB1100R repilcas.
Came across this thread and got me thinking how sad it is that the forum has gone badly tits up recently.
Anyway also found this body kit for a CB1100. I'd love to have a go but at about £4500 for the kit and about the same for a doner bike it's way out of my league. DOREMI COLLECTION : Type R Basic Full Package Set  View attachment 104020
How's the latest Monster project going Brad?don't mind the front fairing, but it's all very bolt on without much integration looks wise from that back. the tail section on the st is a frame piece designed for a job of some strength and to be covered, not displayed. and the back of the tank needs some covering where the seat goes, and looks odd on display. needs tank mods, that sort of thing.
i like his monster front fairing and some of that kit, but other bits are a bit funky. he's designing bolt on kits, and that's hard. mounting a fairing with a wrap around bracket like a plumber or sparky would use is just a bit naff to me, but the options are more work or welding to the frame. like that gpx250 / ninja 250 kit you can buy in the usa - for what it is, it's pretty good.
possibly a good starting point when you're needing bits and don't mind cutting them up to get where you really want to go. sometimes the big bits are hard to find what you want, but you start with what you can get and the rest flows from there.
What started this was seeing a 2007 st3 that was coming through the auction. The repair quote made it sound like a cosmetic write off with low miles, 19000km. I ended up buying it and it has turned out to be way to nice to mess with. I actually find the cans on it are the glaring ugliness, a Conti style with a little more upsweep would work better. I read they only built 1000 in 2007, poor sales not ltd production I'll post some pictures of it tomorrow on my thread.Woodsman,
That Tifoso kit has been around for a while as a sort of Sport Classic clone and as Brad Black mentioned, the hardware is a bit agricultural. Is that the look you are going for or are you looking to replace the stock bodywork with something less frumpy?
Airtech probably sell suitable fairings. I do like the idea of that Tifoso seat, but Radical Ducati killed that with their MANX seat and tank which look really nice. I made a seat out of carbon fiber because I couldn't find a seat that I liked. The Sport Classic or Paul Smart seat is really fat at the back. If you like fat bottom girls, that look can make the rockin world go round - with apologies to Freddie Mercury.
My ST3 arrived with every piece of plastic smashed or scratched, so I went the naked way - not me silly. The bike. Stylewise the big issue is that huge tank which dominated the appearance. I painted mine black on the lower edge to change the visuals and to work with the seat I fitted.
