Cool Hey guys, thought i would say hi since i just got a new bike!

Haven't had a motorbike in nearly 2 years since i crashed my beloved zx6r F3
After that i moved into cars and settled on a little MX5 ive been playing with for a nearly a year now. Till someone crashed into the back of me!

So.. i thought i would buy two new bikes! yay for me. Got myself a nice project bike for the winter.
A nice little 636 A1p.
Crashed with mostly cosmetic damage.

I have ALWAYS wanted a 636 and intend on spending a few pennies getting her all done up. So i will be bugging you guys more often than not for advice and opinions.

Don't let me down :P

Thanks in advance!

First update. Bike has been stripped down. apart from wheels and engine etc. This is because my a frame stands havent come yet. Just waiting for those!



removing the undertray was a night mare - i had to cut it in the end.

Also.. the 03 04 headers will be here in a few days yay!
Just trying to haggle a good deal with a chap regarding his 05 06 rear end configuartion :D

Also.. trying to make up my mind if i want to powder coat the frame black or red.... What do you guys think?

For christmas... I got a ZX6 G2 frame! Thankyou Santa!

Just put on the new rear end


Just to check it all fit together fine.
Going to drop the engine out tomorrow and get the forks off. Will get the frame and swing arm ready for powder coating and will hopefully get it that done closer to the end of december. Decided to go with metallic red!
Can't wait to get the parts back and start building her back up bit by bit!

Make sure to take lots of pictures. We have a couple cuties on here that work on their own bikes. Looking good so far
