Ok here we go. I've got about all the 35mm photos I could find, and have scanned them in to my computer. This thread will document the build/updates to my 93 RR that I bought back in 94 off a very good friend of mine. He went on to take all the cash I gave him and bought a first year 1994 YZedF 750R, and walked out with change.......Anyway, I feel I need to post the build as I really have no one around me who cares to look at these photos anymore (besides me of course), and I think it will help to detail my experience. Now bear in mind, I was a 22 year old "kid" living at home, just graduated college, got a full time job (to fund the project lol), and had 2 other friends that wanted to go broke modding their bikes as well. It was a perfect scenario. I never made it to a track day, but we all wore full leathers, back braces, and would blast northwestern CT and MA on Sunday mornings, along with occasional ride to Danbury,CT for Marcus Dairy Super Sundays. We were "Team Full Chat".
In an attempt to keep you coming back and checking this thread out, being that the bike has been done since 98 and out of my possession since 99 (sold it to get married - do not comment on that part lol
), I will update the thread every few days or as time permits.
Going through all the photos reminded me on how much I loved/love this bike, it was one of a kind and it was fantastic to work on and own. She was awesome.
So, with the prelude complete I will set the stage, summer 1994 I sold my 600 hurricane for $2200, took a personal loan out, and paid my buddy for his CBR. I got it from him with the PM wheels, 945cc Weisco kit already installed, Chafong Rear sets and clip ons. He had the solo seat tail section painted by a car guy, and I hated it.
Thanks for the comments if you leave any, and I hope you enjoy. Oh, and please ask questions if you have them.
The CH150D Elite scooter, where it all began. I was recently reminded to look back about where I started in motorcycling. This was it. A leftover 86 model I bought in October of 87, before I could legally drive.........yeah, I was 15.
Then here, where the need to save money and not pay a mechanic got me to learn how to do it myself. Bought in April of 1992.
To here, bought July 1994 as I got It from my buddy. OH YEAH! Sold in 1999 to fund the wedding.
And finally, to present. Same year, different bike, great story for another thread......
