New Member Shrek = 93 Restoration

New to the forum and just picked up a 93 CBR900RR is bad shape for a complete restoration. My wife and I used to ride a 93 model 20 years ago and could not pass up bringing back to life to relive those memories.

The bike is rough, been in a barn for 5 years, was dropped and it bad shape. The good news we put a new battery in it, changed oil and it acutally started. Time to tear down and rebuild!

Will be posting a lot to show progress and ask questions.

Re: New Member Shrek = 93 Restoration

Nice build Gunk and thanks Ian for the quick replies. Yep Green to the forum. I am going to start a build thread, bikes needs LOTS of parts right down to a complete new AirBox, fuels systems, brakes and brake lines etc. Living in New England and leaving a bike like this in a barn/shed for 5 years does bad things to it with the cold.

Estimate this will be 3-6 months due to cost/time - hoping to get a ride in before Winter comes at the end of the year.!

He's in for the long haul. Funny thing is, my POS looked almost just like his at the beginning.

Great find. Mine looked just like that. It's almost scary. Welcome. We can always use more GREENIES!

Re: New Member Shrek = 93 Restoration

Looks like we have thread especially for Blades with shite matt black paintwork, seems to be plenty of them about. It’s the badge of honour for bike that’s been thrown down the road!
