Always wanted a big tubed ally framed special, really wanted a spondon, but didnt want second hand,  i also didnt want people saying was that such and such,s bike,  wanted to build my own bike from something new. I contacted gav at GIA mid last year and arrangements were made, deposit paid etc, As of today its not quite ready, it will be ready to pick up this friday, but i.ll post some pics of the build so far. Now it will be a slow build, i work out the country 6mth of the year, 4 weeks at a time, it will basicly be built twice, first for an MSVA with all the legal E marked gear, then a little rebuild with the bits i want to use. Engine wise its a 1216 bandit lump, currently being built by don at rooster raceing. luckily don lives about 3 mile from me, cracking bloke, what he doesnt know about suzuki lumps isnt worth knowing, his workshop and engine room are amazing, i feel honoured that he,s building the lump, I do have a plan in my head on what route i,m taking parts wise paint etc. But i know when i pick the bike up and see it in the flesh it may change slightly.

One funny coincidence,I think I joined the original forum 2007/2008, I was 43  when I joined so just chose jimbob43,  the frame number is 043

Over the past few month the bits I've gathered for it so far, dyna 2000, dyna mini coils, motogadget m-unit, proscope speedo, ISR master cylinders with built in switches, ISR radial calipers,just recently got a good deal on a set of ohlins forks that I,d of been a fool to turn down, be a shame to polish the gold off the fork legs but its the look i want,never been a lover of gold on a bike, reverse thug yokes, and a nice nitron rear shock, headlight wise I've used a pair of twin oberons on a previous bike, and I really like them, suits the style of bike in my eyes, still have a lot of stuff to source though, but I think I have the bulk

Finally picked it up today, totally exhausted, months of worry stress etc gone, feels like massive load off my shoulders, now to form a plan and get stuck in, but for next couple days I would just like some private time with the new bitch in my life

Yeah but i heard...... that if you treat a woman like an object... you will hear you are shallow for treating them like an object o.O

Made a start on it today, got the engine out, was only empty lump, wasn't sure where to actually start so thought I'd start on electrics, needed a mount for the motogadget speedo, I did have a set of bars that held the speedo, but looked like they came out of halfords, bit fun with the grinder and drill and one speedo holder fitted, needs sanded off etc but its a start
