  • WTB - Jap muscle bike under $3500

    Hi All, looking around for a decent bike for next project - but this one will be a daily (or so) rider.

    Thinking late 90s early 2000's i should get something decent, will be streetfighter style. Must have some decent power/go to it so i saying 900cc +.

    Anyone got anything or know of anything?

    ZRX1100 is kinda perfect style of what I am thinking as basis.

    Actually - it doesnt NEED to be Jap. I'm open to all bikes (except cruisers).

      zrx 1100-1200 sweet but probably a bit harder to find.

      gsxr 750-1100

      trx 850

      zxr 750.
      You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

        Found a ZRX with a gearbox issue - as it's a daily I dont want to have to fix it as soon as I get it!
        Surprisingly not a lot of gixxers under 5K
        TRX was my first choice love the frame - all over 4500
        I HATE the ZXR750, I had one years ago and it was the heaviest piece of junk Ive ever ridden! on the plus side, the tank was so wide a case of beer sat on it perfectly!

        Found a TL1000S that might fit the bill if I can get the price down a bit.

              Cheers Dex. There's some stuff out there but these are a bit too far away. I haven't been looking at eBay much, better keep my eye on it.

                      I have a few mates that the only way to get to them is the freeway, why not take only 2 wheels and possibly come back over Mt Mee or Glorious??!?!?!

                        My mate just sold his trx850, was rebuilt and bored out to 890 I think from memory. One of the nicest bikes I've ever heard.
                        Through summer I daily ride a gsxr600 12/02 model, it will still do 200km/h in third gear and get there fast enough, on a track......................... of course. Theoretically it should do 280 but my balls are nowhere near that big.
                        Mates have gsxr750s and r1s, vtr1000 firestorm/fuelstorm, all superb riding bikes, but look pretty shit as street fighters in my opinion.
