1996 fireblade SP

since a lot of us here are sick with OCMD, i stumbled across this and thought id share it with the rest of you.

this guy took his 96 blade and started swapping out parts like a mad scientist. he swapped a 1000RR motor into the 96 chassis, fuel injection, electronic dash among alot of other electronics, OZ wheels, ohlins forks and shock, brembos all around, an aprilia RSV swinger, an RS125 tail, and so on and so forth.

pretty cool to see some fully built one offs.

heres the bike before the motor swap emblazoned with the 2014 SP colors



and here it is getting the 1000RR motor swapped



hes got almost 30 youtube videos documenting the whole build. pretty sweet.

OMG what an amazing bike! I'm a sucker for 80's and 90's sportbikes redone tastefully like this with current wheels, brakes, and suspension.

That is awesome. Seems like there are not enuff hours in the day to do all that stuff.

One of those steps woulda been enuff for most modders.

If you watch even one of his videos you realize there was a LOT of work that when into this. CC I too can't help myself on 90s bikes with upgraded chassis components. A lot cooler than just going out and buying a new bike. He really is a skilled fabricator and he did an excellent job on the bike. I love the colors
