Talking 1986 GSXR 750 Resto-mod

its been about 4 years in the making and I finally have my bike where I want it. Still need to address small stuff but its pretty much all there, and Im pretty proud of it. Did all the work myself in my garage minus machine work like cylinder boring, crank polishing, etc. (credits to Harold's Automotive, they do amazing work) and my buddy did a fantastic job with the body repairs and paint! Im very happy with the turnout and felt like I had to share

Whoa. THAT'S PRETTY BAD ACE. How long did it take and what kind of condition was it in when you purchased it?

this is what it looked like when I first got it road-worthy. what was going to be a fix-and-flip turned into a keeper for multiple reasons

That's good. I've had absolutely terrible luck with them. pads, rotors, brake lines, banjo bolt bleeders, rebuild the M/C, busa M/C, R6 brembo M/C. vacuum bled, gravity bled, bench bled.

the only thing that worked for me to get good brakes was 4 pot caliper swap from a 90's GSXR.

My first real street bike was an 86 as well.
It was light and nimble.
I always said it was made for short people as being 5'6". I literally laid on the tank.
Would finish some rides w a bruised chest.
Ahhhh.
Good times.

Give a list of the hard work you put in the motor....
If I remember correctly you have a pretty good build on that as well.

Nothing extremely radical, stock unmodified '89 short stroke top end on '86 long stroke bottom (815cc) , 3rd gen rods, 36mm slingshot CV carbs. 10:1 static compression. I did need to machine the conrods and add a block spacer. Can't remember where I set the cams
