The sumo (the beginning)

This is (was) my sister's bike, a '93 Honda CBR 600F. Heavy, scratchy and clunky, but it's still a bike.. One of the previous owners changed all the fairings with fiberglass ones, but it really wasn't a good job...


So, I started to "add lightness" removing, as usual,  fairings and seat and adding a solo seat from a Triumph Thruxton Cup kit

Then I've made some experiments with "fine" Potoshop actions....


Here with my favourite pin-up model...


Then comes the 70's fairing, a classic cone exhaust and a single "sided" headlamp from a speed triple

Looking good, but still too modern.. Let's find out another 70's goodie

 Needs some adjustments..


Here we go! 

Now it's time to dismantle the bike to the bare frame and start "THE SUMO" project
Continue...sooner or later
