Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

Honda929, you've inspired me! I have the same bike sitting in my garage right now in the process of being reborn from three wrecks (two from previous owners and one from my knucklehead step son). I've got all the tough body work done and have start some of the paint work. Can't answer your question, but's it great seeing your pics; keep us informed of your progress as time goes on.

Good luck with the build up my friend!

BTW, Check that Caps Lock...

Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

Hey Mikedom86, I am thinking of putting 2007 cbr1000 body work on the 600 because the side plastice on the 1000 is more open to show my polished cases.I seen the a cbr 1000 hurricane with a single side swing arm and underseat exhaust and was set up as a naked bike and it looked cool ass.The the web sitei think i seen the bike was cbr xstream (the spelling might be wrong).As far a my bike its together minus the plastic but i cant start the darn thing because of carb issues, i will post some update picks when i get a chance.

matty_998cc is an unknown quantity at this point
Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

Nice project!

My best friend graduated from his learner EX500 to an 1988 Hurricane 600. He bought it with 45K miles and it ran like a champ until he sold it 20K miles later. First sportbike I ever rode.

This bike is a new classic and I'm glad to see some still in good condition. I'm sorry I don't have any info on mounting the newer bodywork but good luck with the project. Make sure you give an update when its done.

Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

Hi, you will have to get a swing arm from a cbr f2 and rim from a cbr 900rr,
get the machine shop to cut the swing arm mount to fit your frame then get them to cut on the rim the cush drive spacers and brake bracket to fit, a very tight fit but it works for me. take a look at her now almost done with the body work still need a 954 tail piece i am bidding on ebay right now.

Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

That's looking nice For some reason I like it more when people give slightly older bikes new life.

I wanted to do something along those lines but I just wanted to put 92-95 CBR 900RR front fairings on an F1 CBR 600 but alas I couldn't find any clues on how to do it other than a pic of someone who had done it.

Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

Ambitious project there. Looking good so far. What is your plan for head lights? As far as keeping pace with newer bikes, my only issue with my F3 is ground clearance. Looks like you have put aftermarket rearsets on to fix that.

Re: HURRICANE REBORN (category 5)

Wow what a great project, I see you haven't abandoned it after nearly a year, much better commitment than most!

You've got to post more pics, as we're all visual learners.


Is there an inverted fork that bolts up? I know $$$, but would be sweet.
