I didn't even know this site existed until the SRAD told me about it. Not much going on in the oiler section though. We might have to fix that.

A lot of you probably know me from over there, but for those who don't I work mostly with the oil cooled bikes. I have had newer bikes, but they don't need a lot of tinkering so they bore me.

Here's a shot of my most recent build - not finished yet. It's an 86 750 frame with a 91 1127 motor in it and a few suspension upgrades. I built it from the ground up out of spare parts I had in my garage. Well, okay, I did have to buy a few grommets and such to finish it, so not everything was just laying around.



And here's one of mine that got stolen about a month after I finished it. This was in Monterey during MotoGP 2006. I wouldn't mind having again so if anybody sees it let me know. I'll go pick it up.

Too bad about the stolen bike. Make sure you post lot's of pics of the unfinished one when it's done (or even during).

Welcome.

Yeah, I have lots of pics of all the builds - including the one that was stolen. I got $5k out of the insurace settlement.

Glad to see you could join us. I guess my diguised post for this site has so far gone unrecognized.

Yes Eric...There needs to be a place for the "Old Schoolers" like us.
Im SURE we will see some new forums popping up soon for the oil cooled AND
water cooled and hopefully the srad's as well?

Free classifieds as a sub forum to the oil cooled forum - viewable by everyone. That should put the screws to GDC in a big hurry.

I had the same bike way back when, accept my was Red/Black.

Your bike looks great


Thanks man. You mean you had a bike like in the pic below? So did I... This shot was scanned from 1990 I think.




Here's another of the blue one right after I got it and before I did any work to it.



And a couple of the 7/11 during the build.













And with every birth, there comes an afterbirth. This mess took a while to clean up but I had worked something like 18 hours straight without cleaning.
