It’s Been A Good Day :-)

February 20, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I saw an ad on a motorbike forum asking for photos of pre ’99 Fireblades, either restored or modified.  Mine is neither really, but is pretty much original, in good nick and I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try.  So I sent in a couple of photos just on the off chance.  Well, just over a week ago I had a phone call and they are sending a photographer down and take some shots tomorrow 🙂

It’s been a busy week for my OH as his bike was apart having some upgrades done on it and he’s had to rebuild it so it’s ready, whereas I’ve just had to give mine a bloody good clean and polish.  Yesterday was spent washing, cleaning and waxing and today I rode her down to where the shoot is taking place.  A quick going over to get rid of the little bit of dirt she picked up on the way down and she’s good to go 🙂

My baby sure does scrub up well 🙂

1995 Urban Tiger

I really can’t wait for tomorrow to come now 🙂


Streetfighters at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live 2010 :-)

December 4, 2010

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 🙂
