A Street Fighter is essentially a modified naked bike. They usually start out as a regular sportbike, but all the bodywork is removed, and often the lights and instruments are changed (projector headlights are common), and usually the handlebars are changed over to standard "superbike" bars.

As the project continues, you'll see aftermarket wheels and brakes, different swingarms, forks, and even frames.

To get a good idea of the scene, check out this website -- http://www.motoventure.com/

Well, Kid, the cool thing about building a street fighter is, you can just buy pretty much any crash-damaged sport bike cheap, and you already have the basis! Just about any parts that get damaged when someone crashes a sportbike are the very parts you'd be trashing anyway. So you can have your pick of bikes to start with. Then, just add a few parts and a paint job, and you're all set...

Someone got a crashed CBR900? Give 'em 3 or 4 Grand, and you have your street fighter!

I'm actually about to start my own project: I've raced a TL1000S for the last three years, and I was about to sell it as a stock street bike, but I decided to keep it and make a V-Twin Street Fighter! I haven't seen too many TL's used for this purpose, so it'll be kind of different. And talk about a wheelie-monster hooligan bike!

I'll keep everyone updated as the bike develops...

Take a look at this site... This is what I call a street-fighter! A little more cash needed than the usual salvage build-up though... http://www.sgray82.freeserve.co.uk/spondoncbx.htm
