IT HAS BEGUN!!!!!

The next CBR900RR Dragbike is under way. The suspension has been lowered and the bike now stands a staggering 2.5 inches off the ground. The Swingarm should be back from the fabricator any day now and will be 6 inches over stock. I'll be running Nitrous on this little guy as well. An airshifter will find its way on the bike too.

Oh well, I could go on and on, but that would be senseless. Silverbullet, here I come my friend.

It hasn't gone anywhere. I like to do all my own work.

I have a personal friend that does all of my fabrication.

As for pics, I will likely not have any until the bike is complete. I am camera-less at the moment.

Re: IT HAS BEGUN!!!!!

I wish I had someone local to do mine. I'm looking at either a McIntosh or Thompsons modified arm. That's the last thing I have to do - and also the most expensive single mod.

Keep us posted on your buildup - sounds sweet

If you can pull off a Macintosh Chromoly Swingarm that's the ideal way to go. You will have a lighter and much stronger arm than you can build out of aluminum.

The last CBR900RR was capable of low 9 sec passes.

I'm after the same with this one. I don't really know why I build the things. Everytime I get a bike to run decent times I sell it and start over.

Granted I'm real new at this - but I'm thinkin' building the thing is half the fun.
