    I had some extra money from my school loans, and decided to pick up a bike for the summer. The winner was a 92 CBR600F2 in good mechanical shape, and about 10k miles. Re-did the whole bike. If you know about sportbikes, you probably know it's a great 600cc bike for the money, especially for a first track bike or a stunt bike. Those who don't, probably would think it's alot newer than 92 :p

    Hopefully they aren't too big. I figured most of you are at 1024 or higher. By the way the new paint is a metallic grey from a Honda Civic, (98 I think). Not bad for a '92 eh?

    I think I gave the guy like 1,800 for it. He had just spent like 700 on a new rear tire and a ton of mechanical restoration. I decided it was probably worth about 1,500, and I split the 700 with him to go for 1,800

    looks good but boring without all the stickers.

    probably doesnt go as fast as it did before, either.

    Yeah I am debating a silver/black decal kit for it. I was hoping polishing the pipe would make up for the lost HP, but I'm not sure it was effective yet.

    i hope it does, but since you already know that stickers give you WAY more horsepower than bolt ons do, i wont lecture you. ;)

    Paint was done by one of my father's good friends. He's the man. The best part is I got it done for materials only because he owed my dad a favor. 300 something bucks I think it was. I had to do a bunch of the prep work though. I think he said if it was a normal job it would have been between 1 and 2 thousand.

    fuck stickers....get some air brushing done. speaking of painting, did you paint/powdercoat any engine pieces? that would look killer. perhaps maybe some chrome plating would look badass too. just a thought :)

    Yeah I was considering it. the CBR600F3 engines bolt directly in, and you can get those up to like a 98' I think. You can also put the 900 range motor in there with some help.
