Thanks Phil! Just hope it runs as well as it looks. :wink:

Still haven't decided on a painter but think I will go with something similar to the F1.
Red up top then white, followed by green on the bottom using something similar to the sport for the proportions with more red on top.

Wow, that looks fantastic. I don't think it looked that good 27 years ago.

Another small step forward on this build. Powdercoating is finished so I can begin to reassemble. Also picked up an adjustable front end and full floating front rotors.

Another small update. Headers have been ceramic coated and the body has been dropped off at paint.

Looking good. I can't wait to see the end result. Are those GPR's made for the Sport specifically?.

Thank you Andrew. The pipes are for a 92 900ss but with a little modification worked well with the stock sport header pipe. Really impressed with the quality and delivery of the GPR pipes.

Building this bike has inspired me to go test ride a 2017 Monster 1200r. Test riding the 1200r inspired me to add it to my garage... :thumbup:

More work done on the 750 and tuning is almost complete. Syncing the dual Mikuni's was a bit of a pain but think I am close.
Waiting for the paint on the tank to be fixed and it will be ready for some shake down rides.
