till a couple filthy pikey bastards took it for a spin and left me with this



then i started building another



only i got sick to the back teeth of the twats trying to break in to my house to get m bikes that i had to lock up in my kitchen, so sold that on - sold my kawasaki zephyr550 and my gsx600f sold my tools and sold all my spares, engines pannels wheels anything bike related, leathers gloves boots the lot.

my gpx in the other thread is the first bike ive had back in 2 years nowsince we moved from the shithole we were in... so now i guess its only right i start to build the final gixxer

the tank on that last one is from a watercooled model, had to fill the sides slightly to get it to fit but it looked the business, the rear pod was from an old TT racer.

the red and black one, the fairing was a harris replica of the yoshimura tornado fairing, rare enough in itself, the carb covers were original yoshimura items, they were loaned to airtech in america to make a mould for reproductions, the heat shield was a yoshimura heat shield and i believe the seat unit was another harris item. its all gone
fire was so intense it melted the frame and the flatslide carbs, where it was dumped it was down a kind of ditch if you will with a road up the top, so fire fighters couldnt get in, plus the cases were magnesium... they said because of the intensity of the fire and the magnesium had cought alight, it was glowing a blinding white and spitting furiously, there wasnt a lot they could do as they couldnt get in close enough. ... it was the worst birthday present i had ever received thats for sure

And they wonder why people like Tony Martin shoot the bastards.

it should be legal on your land, if you own the land or are renting the land, its your land, if some pikey bastard comes onto it with intentions of theft, then they should forefit the right to human rights, and the law. the guy across the road also had his bike attempted to be stolen and that cunt had a 7 foot brick wall round his garden and a big gate with more locks on it than escapoligist. apparently they jumped over took it off the stand then realised they werent getting it out so dropped it an left. my first bike to be stolen was my ajs 125 - i put reward posters up for its return or information, the twat that nicked it rang up offering to sell me it back.... not thinking straight enough i gave the toerag an earful and asked why i should buy my bike back!, after the call i realised i should have agreed and when we met up given the little cunt a knuckle dusting. police werent interested in that either

took the gix frame to work to clean, 20 odd years worth of grime and oil to remove......

traffic film remover, we use it on the trucks, when used neat it's like nitro morse to oil but without damaging the rubber and plastic parts, a quick hot jet wash and its like a new frame again
