This is pure badass! My desire to own an extremely rare 1989 GSXR750RRK led me to the point where I just built my own. But being that I can never leave well enough alone I built this awesome monster retro GSXR7/11RRK.
I started out with a 1989 GSXR750 frame that I braced to Yoshimura superbike spec then powder coated a brilliant gloss black. I added a 1994 GSXR1100 braced swingarm with a Fox adjustable height linkage and Fox twin clicker remote shock. The front end was treated to a fully adjustable set of ATTACK triple clamps holding a set of 2012 GSXR1000 Big Piston Showa forks with a 30 mm KTECH cartridge. Brakes are monoblock radial calipers from a 2007 Yamaha R1, clamping GALPHER 320mm superbike rotors, custom Core stainless brakelines all powered by a Brembo radial master cylinder. The rear brake is a Brembo mounted to a custom underslung brake stay. The wheels are light weight GALSPEED 10 spoke 3.5/17 front and 6.25/17 rear. Gearing is all Votex and RK 520 size. The dash is a Honda CBR1000RR unit that displays all information resto-mod style. In the motor department I shoehorned into the 750 frame a 1127cc GSXR motor equipped with Yoshimura cams, Yoshimura head gasket, ported head and under cut transmission. The fuel comes in through a set of 41mm Kehien flat-slide carbs and exhaust gases fly out through a custom Vance and Hines, Yoshimura exhaust.The oiled cooled superbike motor is cooled down with a 10 tier Earlâs Oil cooler with stainless steel lines and aircraft fittings. I changed the stock cable clutch to a hydro Brembo radial assembly one for easy clutch feel.
The motor just pulls forever! I have not dynoed this one yet but seat of pants is saying high 160s at the rear wheel. Of course this is all wrapped up in a Lance Johnson Paint Worx body work/paint job that is absolutely stunning. This is bike is a prime example of the present day and the past in a title fight. Its a blast to ride and nobody ever really knows what it is. Oh by the way notice the short wheel base....can you say 4th gear WHEELIES? Party on! You can ride this bike everyday and enjoy that old school carburated grunt in a modern chassis set up. Wicked fun and beautiful. Just add fuel and smile!
