    Electric Hurricane - 1987 CBR600 F1 Conversion

    I am just getting started on my Honda Hurricane conversion.

    Donor Bike is a 1987 CBR600 F1 - It's a moto Classic, and I am tickled pink that I was able to get a hold of it for $150 on Craigslist. It should make an awesome conversion.

    Here is a shot of it seconds after I rolled it out of the bed of the truck.

    And here it is an hour later, after some weight loss:

    That was on Oct 28th 2012

    Here it is on Nov 4th after being fully de-ICEd!


    I wanted to keep all of the info on the project together, so I have reserved posts for explaining my major decisions, and decision making processes along the way. Hopefully this will help others watching understand the process of the whole build.

    I will post a new topic for specific discussions, and then link to the topic, and put the conclusions and decisions in the appropriate post.

    PLEASE JOIN THE CONVERSATION! I will need all the help I can get!

    PHOTOS: I plan on taking lots of photos. I will post some in this thread, but there will be more in my ALBUM HERE. Take a look for extra views of the build.

    TIMELINE: Unfortunately, I expect this to be a bit of a long term project, I have lots going on right now, and I will have to raise the money for the project in my spare time, so I will have to be cunning to get it done. I'll start with parting out the ICE, and other parts, which I hope will raise about $500. I'll let you know.
