It's getting there, still waiting on parts at the moment, but the only thing I need to hunt down is some new crank bolts.

I'd love to get this post there, but I have no idea how to be a supporter etc.

Heh, will be a doozy alright. Mainly been working so I can get more parts paid for, if you thought this couldn't get bigger, here is what I have acquired so far:

RVF400 JHA SP2 Stainless Exhaust System:

RVF750 RC45 320mm Brembos:
Image

GSXR1000 Brembos (may be placed with proper M4s come build time)
Image

CBR600 F4i with CBR929RR fork damper kit, to suit my RVF400 with CBR600RR forks (this was a luck shot that it had all the same specs)

Off Topic, this is why there has been delays:
Shed + Carport slabs

PPS. to those who made it this far, this is now officially a 450cc build.

Garage is finished. All that's needed is to outfit it.

Still gathering hard to find bits, but I am definitely finding them. Project should begin not soon after the garage.
