Here we go, more eye candy for fighter fans 😀
We’ve been in the lucky position where we had exibitor passes as my OH’s bike was in the Custom Xtreme display, and so today we made our second visit to the show. We still have to go back tomorrow to pick his bike up once the show closes and we’re hoping the worst of the weather is now over and we won’t have any problems.
As we’ve spent 2 Saturdays at the show and have lots of photos I’m going to do a series of posts covering our time up there 🙂
Firstly, the Streetfighters on the Custom Extreme display. I gotta do this first or my OH will never forgive me 😉
Here are a few closer shots of some of the fighters on display 🙂
First of all is Sideshow’s ‘Roadkill’. This was originally a 1996 Honda Fireblade but a few months sawing, welding, painting, ebaying and swearing produced this.. If you want to have a look at the build process you can read ALL about it here. I just love it but unfortunately I’ll never be able to ride it, not unless I take to carrying a set of steps round with me so I can get on it!
This not so little beaut belongs to Mark (Rouge on Custom Fighters). The frame was custom made by Mark himself in his shed and the oomph is provided by a GSX1400 engine. If you want to take a look at the build process you can follow it here and it was featured in Issue 202 of Streetfighter Magazine. This photo doesn’t really do it justice so I’ll do a little write up on this another time with some nice close up photos 🙂
Lastly for today is this one.. A rather tasty Suzuki 7/11 which featured in issue 200 of Streetfighter
More to follow another day 🙂
Day 4 a the show see’s MCN featuring bike customisation.. I’ll quite freely admit to being dissapointed with this particular segment (although I’m horribly biased 😉 ) as the hard work carried out in the sheds and garages around the country to build the bikes in the Custom Xtreme stand weren’t even shown. Only a few shots of some of the bikes on the Carole Nash ‘Britains Got Biking Talent’ were seen (Nice one Steve! owner of the MT01 fighter), and even then, only for a few seconds at the beginning of the segment.
To me customisation is all about getting out in your shed or garage and making things BY HAND and not buying factory made bits to change the look of your Harley!!!! Sheesh!
