Talking New Member from Miami

Hello Gixxer.com,

I'm new to this forum, I've been riding for a couple of years and have gone thru a few bikes, most recently a 2009 CBR1000 which was stolen from almost a year ago

So I've decided to build a k1-k3 GSX-R from scratch. Originally wanted a 750 but got a good deal on a 600 frame and then motor. I might do a build thread somewhere, I've pretty much found all the major things, few parts have been powder coated, even got some sweet custom Chinese fairings on the way everything I've got has been real clean and I'm hoping it'll be like a new bike when I'm finished.

Anyways just wanted to say whats up!

You have the 750 swing arm, you should have just bought a 750 motor. Welcome, looking forward to seeing it done.

Your right, the person I bought the frame from gave it to me. I have ordered an extended swing arm and actually am trying to sell this one.

The bike will be primarily used for the high way and street. No curves for me.

Because an extended bike has no place in the street? To each they're own as I always say.
