I didn't have a title for my bike and it looked like it was going to cost a good amount to get a bonded title so I decided to by another frame instead. I picked up a newer frame that was in better condition and had a title off of craigslist for 200$ and set my motor in it.
Surprised my husband with the motorcycle he wanted:o) It is a
Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster Sport with Screamin' Eagle engine:o) Don't

Honda CBR 600 motorbike/motorcycle rebuild (Full version)
This bike was a Non runner when i bought it.After a great deal of time and
effort i got it up and running.
I brought it back to life.
The Honda CBR600F, known as the 'Hurricane' in the US market, is a sports
motorcycle made from 1987-1990, with an all new model released in 2011
by Honda. The original CBR600F was Honda's first inline 4-cylinder,
fully faired sportbike. It had a liquid cooled 85 hp (63 kW) DOHC 16-valve
inline 4, and a 6-speed transmission. The Honda Hurricane was introduced as
the newest style of sportbike; its smooth body lines with some of the best
aerodynamic properties of its time. The Hurricane was the first 0.6L sport
bike to cross a quarter mile in under 12 seconds (11.23 second 1/4 mile).
All CBR600's are fairing-clad .
Often the naming of the CBR600F series can be followed by a letter which
designates the year of fabrication(e.g. CBR600F-T for a 1996 CBR600F3.
Also called Hurricane

ninja engine swap
First time doing an engine swap. Bought this bike with a broken engine
mainly for the plastics but decided to put a newer engine in it instead.
Bike runs really good now. Installation took about 4.5 hours.
Suzuki GS 500 - Riding Fast in Swiss Alps, HD Sound (Malojapass on a motorcycle)
Onboard Gopro video of a fast cornering ride on my motorbike. The video
shows the Malojapass from Vicosoprano to Maloja (Switzerland), Google Maps:
Gopro Hero 2 and Zoom H1 are used to record video and sound, sound level is
tuned with wavelab, the video is synchronized and edited with openshot. The
Zoom H1 is located under the seat in front of the backlight, where normally
the tool kit is stored. To prevent the Zoom H1 from bumping around, I
wrapped some foam around it.
The motorcycle is a Suzuki GS 500, built in 2004, restricted to 25 kw / 34
hp. Michelin Pilot Street are used on the bike, the first radial tyres in
these narrow dimensions.
Filmed on September 1st, 2013.
It usually has more cars on that street, but I waited for a gap between the
cars and stopped between part 1 and 2 to be at the end of the gap (when
driving like in the video, I'm usually much faster than an average car driver,
especially in corners with such a big lean angle).
Before such a fast ride, I drive the route at least once before filming to
improve the lines threw the corners and to learn about dangers like gravel
on the street or construction zones.
