    Hey everyone,

    I thought I’d introduce myself. I’ve been riding and wrenching on my bikes for about 8 years now. This seems like a great forum to be a part of. I’ve been building my ’54 fighter for a couple of years now (which has been slowed by the addition of 2 kids and moving 2 times…) that I’m getting close to being done and I’ve also owned an F3, 600RR, and a couple of other 954’s previously (along with a few other non-CBRs). I live in SW FL, I’m still in the process transitioning back to this area after being gone about a year and a half.

    Hey there Conrice and welcome to the forum :)

    This is a very friendly forum and one you should enjoy being a part of … there are some good people here and some good knowledge too.

    It sounds like you have had some nice bikes, the old F series CBR’s were great bikes and still are today if you get a decent one.

    Take care and enjoy the forum :)

    Thanks Demon!

    Here’s a pic as requested
    My project (excuse the mess – I’m in the process of moving):

    Old 954:

    My 600RR (sold):

    I dont have any pics of my old F3. But it was a ’95 that was NOT a looker… The PO put Smokin’ Joe fairings on it, and they were quite rashed up by the PO and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t add to it on few occastions! Such is life.

    Yup, it’s gone. “My 600rr” is a little misleading, you’re right.

    But I did have some fun with it while I had it. I basically bought it to fix it (it had a clutch problem and a leaky M/C that I knew about) and then flip it. But there ended up being a few more issues with it (mainly wiring and it needed a new subframe), so I basically went through the entire motorcycle. I only put 35 miles on it or so, but those were some fun miles, if you catch my drift (I had to make sure it would do everything the “RR” stood for!)

    Thanks for all of the warm welcomes everyone!

    Once I get into my new house (I’m not holding my breath as I was supposed to be in there by the end of October), the build will really start to take shape. I’ll keep everyone updated.

    Oh, that’s just a gixxer tank that I’m using. It’s my Honda 954. To compliment the engine I built for it, I’m using ’08 1000rr TBs with the dual stage injection air box. Because the air box is so much taller than the 954’s original air box, the original 954 tank doesn’t fit the bike anymore. Also, the 954 tank has cut-outs for the air ducts that don’t look good once the bike goes nekkid, so the gixxer tank solves those issues (and surprisingly, looks right at home on the bike…)

    No worries though, that Suzuki Emblem won’t be on there for long. The tank/tail/fender/headlight shroud is going to be the OEM titanium 954 paint…
