My Current ride a ZX9R C2

Here's a pic of my current ride - a ZX9. She's just reached 60k miles and still pulls like a train.
The other bike in the pic is a Suzuki GS850 cafe/tracker project I've recently purchased.

Very nice bud!

You got much to do on the GS850?

Thanks Mark - I love my ZX9. More than enough power for me!
Not sure how much work is required on the GS yet - as I bought her as a non runner, first thing will be getting the electrics shipshape and seeing if I can get the engine running.
Defo know it needs the brakes plumbing in (I might as well replace the hoses with braided cables whilst I'm at it),
and new switch gear, indicators, reg plate mount etc...... oh and a seat!
just hope the engines a peach & not a plum!
Cheers

Yeah they are plenty fast enough for me too!

Mate, I wouldn't know where to start with a project bike! Fingers crossed the engine runs sweet, will be interesting to see your progress on it

Lol... I'm no expert at all.... I thought this project would be a good way of learning a bit more about the mechanics of bikes. If I get stuck with anything I have a friend who's a whizz fixing up bikes & if that fails a forum such as this is a great way to get/share knowledge

That's true, I would like to know a bit more about how things work and mechanics. I can do a basic service and brake pads but that's where my knowledge stops.
