Carbon fiber always finds a way to push the budget limits...

I've been talking with a guy in the UK who will likely be shipping me his carbon fiber rear hugger.

He is sending pics tomorrow.  I'll post it up if I get it.  His is used but in supposedly nice shape.  I can find new ones as well so I'll wait and see.

Hey Kelly, would you be interested in a set of NOS 94 FZR1000 fairing lowers?

Time to fire this thread up again.  I'm taking one of my parts bikes and attempting to get it running.  I want a track bike.  I took my ZRX to the local track this past weekend and it lit up my brain like a Christmas tree.  A YZF would be better at the track and I have a few so .....  (Clem predicted this....lol)

I brought this back from the boonies of New Mexico on a snowy day at Bluewater lake a few years ago.  It's the one I call the brown weirdo bike or #4.  It's in rough shape but the motor looks more likely to be a runner than the others.  It's been "tinkered" with by the PO's (dad and son) so I've been un-tinkering what they did and doing some cleanup.  They had messed with the harness, used the front brake master as a clutch master, lamp cord with no fuse for the fuel pump, etc....  I'm pretty sure they had a Ronco home piercing kit and practiced on each other by the looks too.  They were nice folks, as they kept telling me, which was odd but should not have been tinkering with motorcycles.   Luckily I have plenty of spare parts and a set of race fairings from Airtech.

Left to right, my survivor 94', the 94' brown weirdo bike and the 97' parts bike (with a cracked neck).   I wanted to fire up the 97' as it only had 4100 miles on it when somebody ran it into something but the intakes look too crusty from wherever it sat.  My guess is water got in the heads, dammit.  The brown bike is a good roller and had about 16k on it's odometer.   Still more to do before I can try to fire it up but I'm hoping like hell it's a runner.   [edit]  I call it the brown (weirdo) bike because the PO's had used an adobe colored latex house paint on the bodywork.
