    Default My new toy, 1996 CBR900rr

    I would like to introduce Stanley, the newest member of the family.

    Just picked this up the other day, i was looking out for a cheap runabout and a friend of mine offered me it for a price i couldnt turn down.

    Its clean and well looked after, few niggly issues that need addressing and the carbs need a good clean and set up but apart from that its a half decent 24 year old bike.

    1978 GS1085.

    Sweet! How many miles?
    Every choice you make will affect at least one other person.
    Be careful with you choices.

    60k on the clock but almost complete service history, still not a lot for a 24 year old bike.

    Sweet ... loved them from the moment they were introduced.
    That was with the 16 inch front wheel which i believe was
    abandoned after the first model.

    Great addition !!

    This one has been "upgraded" to a 17" front wheel, borrowed from a VFR750 i believe. It also has GSXR1000 6 pot calipers

    Yeah, that 16" wheel was too good ... caused a lot of crashes.
    Love those brakes btw, though the original brakes were quite good these look better.
    Buddy of mine races one of these Fireblades.
    Though not as powerful, the handling and driveability is so good he can still compete against modern bikes. He loves it.

    Cool ride, Max.
    I like the stealthier paint scheme. A lot of the stock ones for a couple years were too gaudy.
    Jealous of the big brakes.

    Take the quotes off of “upgrade”, the 17” front is much better.
