My new bike. see how long i keep this one???

Post by Jollygiant on Sat 15 Mar 2008, 14:46

Here it is. Not a Fireblade, thought i'd try something different as all i've had till now is blades.
Got a couple of things that need sorting but nothing major, and for the price i paid i'm happy nanadance

By the way its the year 2000 model.

Thats a smart looking bike mate.
Wheels do look good.
I think you'll enjoy it, and it will be different from a blade.

I used to have a YZF750 and can say that was the best road bike I have owned, mine was a late 96 model with Ohlins as standard so I geuss that makes a difference .. (better than the RRW blade)

Likes a nice machine there Jay ....

Nic job, I'd be tempted to paint the rims black too, it would pull it all together nicely.

It's amazing how much difference the black belly makes... I think I would go with the black wheels aswell mate. Nice looking bike though.

Wheels will go black at some point.
Not really sure when, more than likely will be a while yet.

What about just putting the black on the outer rims and leaving the red in the middle???

Your going to get them sprayed anyway, so try spraying the polished bits Black and leave the red.
IF you don't like the look, then continue spraying them Black.
