Brit in Illinois saying Ello


New Member
Thought i'd better stop by and say hello.

Names Dave and i'm a Brit who now calls USA home. based just north of Chicago i've been riding and wrenching for 30 plus years.

Back in UK and somewhat in the US Streetfighter builds where my thing, As i've mellowed in my old age lol, i've always had a Cafe Racer and a complete Restoration on my To-do list.

And that is what brings me here to this site, I have been having a troll through the pages and have been blown away by the builds and knowledge of the builder who lurk here

we are always learning and gaining knowledge and new skills to up our game and i'm looking forward to posting and learning from you all.

I have a KZ440 that will be the base of my next project

If it works here is some of my previous builds and a couple of current ones


89 Suzuki GSXR7/1216

01 Suzuki Bandit 600 with 750 motor

93 Suzuki GSXR750 USV

03 Kawasaki 1000 - Current project

01 Triumph S3 - Daily ride and unfinished project

Welcome mate. There's a few of us up north of Chi Town.

I see a streetfighter influence there. That didn't really catch on big in the US outside of stunting.
