Welcome Sid :smt006

If you're going to choose only one forum, you've made the right decision. Plenty of good folks here, and a few lunatics as well. Definitely not your typical forum crowd.

Beautiful bikes. Tell us more.

Looks like the Gamma has plenty of mods already.

I've got a big puddle of drool on my keyboard now that I've see the 2 naked beauties. Stunning. Your work?

If you put your location in your profile it helps members in your area who may want to reach out.

John

Got to say... an unmodified RG500 is pretty boring. I'm not tuning in to watch the hardware changed from steel to stainless.

On the other hand, the 2 custom fighters are damn interesting!! I'll sit and read or look at pics all day about those bikes. Some great custom work there. Who fabricated those frames and swingarms??

If you were going to do that kind of custom work on the RG, Wow! I'd be super excited!!

Oh, well. To each, his own. Welcome to the site. :smt006

Cheers guys.......rg has split rim wheels on, spondon disc and clip ons...Maxton rear shock.....and AP racing master cylinder. Other bikes...well...cut it short..Busa is running chromoly one off frame and swingy, 300 back wheel, NOZ....etc........The Z is a 1977 Z650 with Ducati front end, Dymag wheels, and a GSX 1400 engine.....lot more to it than that.....and took more more to do than the busa....But building one off bikes is a money pit, So i can have the rg to twat around on, and it wont go down....Sid

If it was mine I'd go back to standard, or another aftermarket option. I think the Astralites look good on a Honda, since they do look just like Comstars. When I first saw your Gamma I asked myself why it had Honda wheels. Ignorance on my part, but being a Honda guy I immediately made the connection.

The RG is sweet. That is the kind of bike I need for a putter. Great work on the other bikes. You have the fab skills or just deep pockets. Great to see you on the forum.
