    I am a man of modest means, really. I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, I'll ride it and fool with it and mod it and then sell it. Usually I come out ahead on the bike and materials but if you figure in my hourly rate I'm working really cheap! It's all in fun and cheap entertainment, beats going to the bar every night.

    The Ducati, for example-bought for $2700, sold for $3400, and kept the fairing and seat. I used the seat as a mold to build up another bike, the "Frankenbeezer" , BSA 650 twin in a Yamaha XS500 frame, bought that for $750, sold for $1400.

    Oh yeah-the FrankenBeezer in the final incarnation.

    I'day you have a good start there. For my taste, a chop job on the seat and a little cleaner and you're ready to go.

    Default Eric's 2009 FZ1

    Here's another shot but still not current. I'll have to clean her up and go get some shots sometime soon.

    I'm liking it brother! With the lighting in the photo, it almost looks as if the blue on the tank fades back to "black". It's probably the lighting but at the same time it's an idea. It actually looks really hot. Cobalt fading to a super dark blue (almost black). Hmmm???

    I think that is why I like this color so much. It changes in the light from different angles, sometimes looking brighter blue and as you see, sometimes black.

    Got you thinking about a color change?

    Well, not sure. I've always been a fan of the fading effect, and the black on my ride has seen better days. Hmm?? There may be something in the works down the line. I'll make a decision just before winter for sure. I'm a really big fan of the "BumbleBee" too!

    I would love to get that retro kit and swap them out for different events. I'm a huge fan of that one as well.

    I didn't have the $$$ but a guy was selling the entire cobalt blue kit after installing the retro for $500. I could have bought it and painted it retro!

    I know! Not having $$$$ seems to be the norm for me these days.
