Well.....

Now loopys back in work I can seriously think about my next project......

and although "Thundergod" is still in progress it's mainly tweaking I'm gunna do and I need summut else to tinker with and over the last few days I have been putting some thought into this......

First I've been thinking about what type of Fighter I wanna build?.....

:hmm:.....& every fibre of me is screaming buy a labcoat, hire an Egor, lock yourself in a ramshackled mountaintop castle and build a MONSTER :D

But not I'm not thinking something like Mary Shelleys sad misunderstood creature. think more, the cartooney reprisentation of said beast*

and in the spirit of Dr. Stein I intend to reuse "bodyparts**", make it bigger and better,then running from the pitchfork wielding yokels when it all goes wrong:D


*I want to keep a sence of fun
**the things I really like about Thundergod

If you want to make it bigger and better than Thundergod, why not use her as a base and make her into the Ultimate Thundergod...? :D

:hmm:... no she's good and I happy with the way she turned out......

but I want my next creation to be BIGGER/FREAKIER:rotfl:

the gixxer is quite skinny and I'm thinking a bigger broader base
like the 900rr:D

The ZX12R does look mean :D Not sure I would keep the paint work if I did.

The 750SS is only about 10 mins from where I live...

Are you hoping to achieve something in mind or just starting and seeing how it turns out? Are you looking to build from scratch or complete someones on-going project "your way"? Engine rebuilds?

I wouldn't know where to start...

Way to go Bob! I'm very happy I chose the 900rr as a base for my fighter. I'm finally diggin' into my Blade again (V-Rod light/ mount, relocation ignition switch, new undertail, rear tail brackets, etc.) so it seems we will be posting updates to same model at same time.

If you've not seen thread for a while, re-visit this: http://www.fireblades.org/forums/streetfighter/75399-amazing-build-progress-down-unda.html There's a link to Jonathan's complete build log and I think he's done a great job.

Also wanted to let you know I caught your pic and bike in the latest issue of Custom Fighters Mag. Nice one!
