any one of those! but the Katana or that GSXR would be really cool, Ive yet to see another 1st-gen GSXR on the road, Ive seen plenty Katanas and GS's


so... bring the GSXR I really hope you're not taking the suspension off that one to put onto the GS

No but that doesn't mean the front end on the GSXR is safe. Somewhere down the road it may get upgraded suspension. I did start/run a page on FB called Restomod Motorcycles after all.

its mostly original though, and those wheels and forks look to be in good shape! only reason why I went full resto-mod on mine was because it wasn't cosmetically appealing when I got it, and it had a lot of beaten up and worn out looking parts

with that said, updating to 17" wheels, inverted forks and an R1 shock made a tremendous difference in the handling department

Ok for those who actually ride their bikes and arenít afraid of corners, Iím hosting a ride Sunday morning. Itís not a long route maybe 2 hours tops, but itís all twisty back roads. Iím thinking KSU @ 9:30, meetup spot at HEB off 99 and Harlem road. Iím not entirely sure about doing the crab river run on the way back because last I heard there was construction, might be worth checking out depending on the group we have. Lunch remains TBD but Iím thinking Sammyís for now
