I'm looking at adding a new horse to the stable. I have the opportunity to get my hands on a MINT 96 fireblade with some "very" decent mod's and a freshly built transmission.
I'm aiming to convert this to a hooligan machine aka streetfighter as they seem to be a hella solid platform for that. Prior to the chop cut rebuild, i want to take this bike as is and tour with it. I can use my magnetic tank bag on this sucker and toss some soft saddle bags on the tail and go.
But prior to doing so, I'm simply curious as the general opinion on those that has owned the fireblades.
What was your biggest simple pleasure with the bike and what was it that you fixed to personalize it to make it your own.
