When I was a kid the superbikes were all the rage. Big, ill handling jap inline fours.
I suppose it made in huge impression on me because I knew some day I had to have something like that.
Now that I have a big, ill handling inline four of my own, I really have major respect for the guys that used to heard these beasts around a track.

Wow, that bike is amazing. I would like to have an old inline bike someday. Keep the pics coming as you do more work, you said it was mostly finished, what else do ya have planned for it?

Thank you.
With a bike that old, it never ends. Since those pictures were taken I relocated the rear signals into the tail lights, swapped out the separate regulator rectifier for a combination reg/rec out of a late model Kawasaki, and a front master cylinder from a mid 90 Katana.

My 80 GS550 has been through a similar process. Actually, It was done before the 1000.
