Take your jacket off, grab a drink, and pull up a seat. This could be a minute.
cliff notes version
-into cars when younger
-after car wreck decided to get my M endorsement
-saw an RC51 on the street and it was game over, I HAD to have one
-RC51 was my first bike, according to 99% of people I'm an idiot who should be dead.
-bikes been down a few times and debating what to do with it
-met gts455 and inspired me to build what I want
those are the basics. I have a love hate relationship with this bike. first time it was laid over was at about 5mph in sand. you know those horrible times where everything goes in slow motion but you cant stop it? Yep thats what it was. After about 2k in new Honda parts the bike was like new again. Two weeks later a tow truck decided to hit me. Again fixed up the bike and added a ton of parts (I went through my carbon fiber stage) and was not happy. Started to return the bike to more factory style when I lent it to a friend (who had a bike and has ridden for a while). Said idiot tries to pull the front end up and sent biking sliding across parking lot. freaking a, thats going to cost me. I got pissed off and gave up at that point. spray paint camo the bike because I didnt care and it looked better than rash.
Fast forward and I dont know if I should do a full build, do a part out and buy another, make it a track bike, etc, etc. I met GTS455 and his bike is simply a work of art, a piece of art thats going to tear up some corners and stand out from all the other usual pieces of art. check out his build here ( https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4681
) after seeing his it relit my fire to build and have a nice RC.
Currently almost completely done with disassembling of full bike. I am literally starting from the ground up. Going to take some time but will be worth it. pics of my bike over the years, and pics of current.
Last pic is current. Waiting for SST to come from Ben to finish breakdown. After that frame and swinger are off to get powder.
