Here for all the mods...
I'm originally from the UK, now living in Minnesota, USA. In the market for a low mile 05/06 that I am going to mod. I also have an early Z1, modded Z900RS, a 50th R1 and a zero mile Repsol 05 CBR1000RR (just bought).
I was active on the ZRXOA form for quite a while and my ZRX won 2016 BOTY. A lot of great custom parts suppliers on there and friendly members which is what attracted me to this Forum. A lot of the Forums are not as active as they used to be, but I have seen some amazing bikes on here which is inspiring. TBH I enjoy working on bikes more than riding them these days, though I am hoping to do some classic track days on the RC51 in 4-5 years when we retire to the UK (RC51 should be classic status by then).
Below a couple of pics of my bikes: the ZRX (sold). Also I had a set of new Brembo M4s I got cheap on eBay. Was thinking about what to do with them and ended up buying a Z900RS and, as usual, got carried away modding it. I liked the color of the Nitron shock spring I put on it so sent the bodywork to the UK to be custom painted to match the shock.
I feel a bit of a connection to this Forum since I raced against a few well known riders back in the 70s in the UK who later became factory Honda riders: Joey Dunlop, Ron Haslam, Carl Fogarty and Robert Dunlop. I also used to race TZ750s around the IOM which was an experience.
Anyway looking to get to work soon on an RC51 and thanks in advance for any help.
