I never should have sold my slabside, especially since it was unmodified except for a loud ass Yosh pipe. :(

Me too, superstrong engines and plenty of bits about. Only bike I had where I never got to the end of the acceleration in top gear (bottled out at 165 on the clock)

I threw down for a ebay engine http://www.ebay.com/itm/290836846336?it ... 60&vxp=mtr so i guess i am going to turn her into a runner . I started stripping her down to clean , paint and lube up bearings .

Lots of 'improvements' to bikes since the era of GT's for sure. The lure of a newer bike is sometimes hard to resist. :up: I figure when mine turns 50 it might be time to retire it to 'trailer queen' status and get a 2nd bike. I'll be 40 then, just in time for a midlife crisis purchase. :roll:

Looks like you're really making a lot of progress.

Josh

If you are thinking of putting newer GSXR suspension on that at some point, would you consider selling the 18 inch wheels and rotors/sprocket?
Did you get the engine with the bike, for the $400?....if so, that's a steal.....

This was my Ebay deal, with a leaking headgasket oil seal ....until i found out that I was given a title that was not valid.... :oops:
Indiana is very uncooperative with any titlework... :cry:

I have another set of same rims , rotors , forks but powder coated yellow at my house in Florida . I wasnt planing any changes to this one for now , i just want to get her up and running at the lowest cost which unfortunately is climbing as i pick up the must haves that included a replacement motor ( $850 ) so the 400$ bike is working its way to $1500 pretty quickly . I wish mine came with the stock paint job :up: but it did come with a nice vintage Yosh pipe .
