So this bike is very special to me and by the end of this story you will
understand why. You see I actually met the owner of this bike long before
either of us decided to put it together. I was at the beginning of my
relationship with his sister and he was someplace in Iraq. So it started
not that I would talk directly to him but, his sister would send him
pictures of the projects I was working on at the time and he would send us
pictures of things he was blowing up.
Fast forward a few years and my now basically brother is helping me unload
a 98 Yamaha R1 out of the back of my truck. Yeah it was rough but it ran
and the paint on the rims and tank was incredible. The work had the
signature of JAWZ and after some research we found out that this bike had a
complete street fighter kit installed on it. We also found out this bike
came over from Europe because the parts were nightmare when we went through
putting this bike back together. Another give away was the speedo (it only
reads in kilos).
From the start he decided to keep the tank and rims intact and it would be
my job to continue the theme that was already there but, convert the bike
back to a full street bike with full fairings. After inspection there was a
short list of mechanical problems but a large list of missing parts. Since
every fairing was missing we went with a set of race fairings. We didnt
have a headlight figured out either so we figured we would mold our own out
of lexan during the build. I picked up a brand new tail and under tail in
blue and it matched the blue in the tank and rims perfectly! It was a
calculated risk since I knew the base paint on the tank was the factory
blue. We rounded up new and used parts from around the world and installed
them as they showed up. The whole bike came together in about four weeks
and the last two things left to do were the headlight and paint.
During mock up we had already decided on the shape the headlights would be
and cut the needed holes in the upper. The trick would be to get the lexan
to fit snug to the holes. After what seems like years of melting pieces of
lexan that never quite fit well we scrapped that plan and glassed the upper
to fit a factory R1 headlight bucket. Since the bucket sat back from the
fairing about ¾ it gave it a frenched look.
A trip to the paint store with a sample for color matching we were ready
for paint. I decided the best way to get the lines flowing was to put the
bike together and use the tank as a guide for the multiple colors I had to
lay down. Using the natural lines of the bike and the existing lines the
graphics dictated I came up with what the bike is today. When I took it for
the shake down ride somebody said it looked like a Captain America bike.
Well the red, white, and blue sure makes it patriotic and the fact that a
Veteran owns it puts another great twist to the overall story of this bike.
It just makes me proud to have been a part of such a special project.

20 years after the launch of the original hyperbike, Kawasaki's ZZ-R1100,
superbikes like BMW's S1000RR are now so fast they're rendering the
Hayabusa and co. irrelevant... Or are they? Read the full test in this
