Future Frankenviffer?

Darth Bling




I've always considered my bike a "baby" Frankenviffer. The left gearswitch is from a Suzuki GSXR, it had Buell footpegs at one time, and the grips are from BMW. In the near future, I hope to graph a Euro-spec VFR gearswitch onto it, my 98/99 VFR headers are currently at Jet-Hot, and I've got a rear shock from a CBR1100XX Blackbird that I'm going to install.

Sure, my bike definitely has parts from other motorcycles attached (or soon to be attached) to it. But, what normally catapults a bike into official Frankenvifferdom is a major transplant. For most people that transplant happens to be USD forks and I'll be following suit shortly. :D

I just scored a set of 2000 RC51 SP1 forks and triples from ebay today!!! Oh yeah!!! :beer:

Way to go, Goose, so your the one that got those. I so wanted them, so you got a good deal. A little pricy, but look at all you got. :thumbsup:

Good luck, keep us informed ot the project.

What does the GSXR shifter get you?

It is the left gearswitch from a 2005 GSXR1000. I've always wanted a pass-to-flash button, so that was the main motivation. Plus, the new GSXR gearswitches have a hazard button too!! :thumbsup:
