as I have just moved from a plastic fantastic to a streetfighter, I think they should be included in the mag. mine is a very basic gsxr conversion but i like to see the possibilities, particularly non expensive ones. i get ideas from seeing other bikes and adapt what i can for mine.streetfighter mag tends to be the higher end of the expensive market and theres not a lot i can picture using on my own bike.

as they are part of this varied motorcycling world of ours why not
if they fit the style of the magazine
a varied selection is what keeps any mag interesting
and in the end there are only so many magazine ready bikes


also isnt 100% currently triking a stretfighter?

Hold on, is it not a custom bike magazine? Or is it just a customised cruiser bike magazine?
I know its not just about cruiser type bikes and trikes so yeah, put streetfighters in cause i like them for one.
Someone said whats streetfighter magazine for. Whats BSH for in reply to that question, comment etc.
I say yes to streetfighters, big trailies, scooters, choppers, sports bikes etc if they have been customised etc. It says 100% Biker on the cover, bikers ride all sorts.

NO All street fighters should be banned

Not realy
I dont mind as long as its still a broad mix of bikes,

Streetfighters aint my cup of tea, but i do prefer extreme ones to someone who has just slapped a kicked up arse on a bandit ?

Now that should be in the mag. But I don't want to see streetfighters in 100%. However, if the majority do then I won't complain (if only the yanks could bring that much democracy to Iraq). I agree that most streetfighters are reincarnations of crashed, plasticless race reps (with some exceptions). They have no spirit like cafe racers in the Norvin, Triton mould. The V-max in front of the climbing wall is more like a chop than a streetfighter (bars are too high, surely).

As someone who is new to the forum but a subscriber to 100% Biker (and Streetfighters) I vote to see streetfighters in the mag along with any type of bike thats been built/modified by its owner and has a story that worth reading. Plus doesn't the sub-text under the 100% banner on the front cover of the mag say Chops, trikes, streetfighter, rallies and some other stuff which I can never read as there is normally some tasty bird in front of it!
I ride a customised Vmax and a streetfightered ZX9 and enjoy reading the wide variety of stuff that is in 100% Biker and long may it continue. Speech over.

I stopped buying SF because it was becoming tart's handbag monthly (oh, and they stopped showing nipples).
The whole idea behind streetfighters was to get an old warhorse up to speed against modern bikes or to get a trashed modern bike up and running on the cheap.
It was never meant to be about putting £2000 worth of ohlins on ANYTHING!

If 100% have the audacity to put bloody scooters in, then real motorcycles of any description are allowed in. Even standard bikes because a lot of bikers I know ride standard bikes - it doesn't make them any less of a biker. I can pretty much guarantee that the £40k Harley owner isn't a biker. He wont be riding it to work in the winter.

I don't personally mind streetfighters being i, not my thing but each to their own. As long as a bike has class rather than just looking like its being magnetized and ridden through an anodised tat factory. Andy from Leicster has had a couple of nice EFE's since I've known him. Definitely no standard bikes though, enough magazines for that. There is only really two general custom bike mags in this country (That aren't specialist ones either on genre, such as streetfighters, or engine config, such as American V.) and thats BSH and 100% so its nice to see a mixture. I like the old brit twin chops like the delinquent but I wouldn't want to see the mag full of bikes like that- I already get The Horse BSC and Dice for that. One of the best mags I saw was a French one called custom that had both bikes and hot rod cars in, was really well put together, and I think in some areas the two scenes are getting closer these days. There I did it I mentioned the C word in a post

That's far to good an answer. How are we supposed to hold a 'discusion'
when you give level headed, well balanced, straight to the point replys like
that.

While I would never ride a fighter or racer, or even one of these stretched out hardtails that can't go over a speed bump, I love to see the engineering that goes into them.

As it was said earlier, this IS 100% biker, and we have seen scooters, trikes, HD's, jap chops, Vtwin chops, Trumpet chops and all sorts, why NOT a fighter if it has had the heart put into it?

Last year saw the Intruder 1500 that was almost a fighter style and I liked what was done to make it that way. While I wouldn't think of doing it to mine, I respected the work someone did to make theirs 100% original, is it so different? The heart of it is still being different which makes it the same

yes.

fighters are custom bikes, and like it or not, chops in the original form of the word.

start leaving out different styles of bikes and you run the risk of becoming `100% biker on 60% of motorcycles´

IMO, if it´s interesting and someone has put the work into it, it´s worth seeing.

a street fighter yeah sure - providing its not just a few bolt on goodies or just outa everybodys finacial reach - after all all us people who mod there bikes - like looking at bikes and often may be copied or even the start of an idea.

i remember the crap that Pat got for featuring the chop sccot that one last years nabd - why not if you saw it in the flesh and spoke to the owner/builder you couldnt fail to be impressed - even more so was teh milage he does on it....

I like your style tho for asking 1st - im not sure if your gonna get a clear answer tho
I think Creature sums it up perfectly.

and tag on this bit from Nitrowing
"If 100% have the audacity to put bloody scooters in, then real motorcycles of any description are allowed in. Even standard bikes because a lot of bikers I know ride standard bikes - it doesn't make them any less of a biker. I can pretty much guarantee that the £40k Harley owner isn't a biker. He wont be riding it to work in the winter."

Modify it by saying that I think anyone who rides bikes, trikes or other PTWs is a candidate for being a "100% Biker" (coz we shouldn't discriminate against scooters), and take note of the fact that it is "100% Biker" - not "100% Bike".

So it's not just about the machines - it's about the people and the machines they ride - and the places they ride em to. So let's see a few more rally write ups. And if we're talking 100% Bikers, I suggest IMHO that year round riders who attend rallies of all shapes and sizes probably come closer to matching that description than the fair weather crotch rocket riders who only attend the big rallies with the fairgrounds and all mod cons.

Bollocks - you've made me forget to take me blood pressure tablets again

Ooooh I sooooooooo agree..... even if i did actually write that myself...

But in Nik´s defence, I must say, whenever we put a streetfighter on the cover sales used to drop.... so we stopped doing it.
My two pennorth is mix, mix and mix again, and yes even Scooters, if they are good...

When we created 100% Biker, it wasnt a ´bike´magazine as such, it was a ´lifestyle´magazine.... and rally coverage was a huge part of it...
