DON"T STREET FIGHT IT!!!! damn whats with every one going to a street fighter style now. back off our territory or there's gonna be a street fight alright. OK I'm done. any way. best way to street fight your bike is to low side it at about 40mph then take off every thing that gets broken and either replace it with some thing more durable or some thing smaller.

try this web site for parts i found their prices reasonable even though they are based in the UK they are still cheap for most stuff.
http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/ just do me one favor don't copy any ones bike. the point of street fighting is its supposed to be yours. modify it the way you want it. mix and match parts from other bikes. paint stuff different. powder coat things. a good resource for ideas would be street fighter magazine. you can find it at Barnes and noble and tower records it is expensive i usually pay 8 bux for it but its the only street fighter specific mag I've found. this is the link to their web site they have some pics of bikes but they also have links to other sites http://www.streetfightersmag.com

As to the painting etc. I have an honest question. I have a silver '03 1kn. I am toying with the idea of powdercoating the frame and wheels black and anodizing them to get a black chrome look. then doing a sating black snakskin paint scheme over the silver (so the silver would essentially become the edges of the scales) I really like snakes (owned a few, and have 2 snake tats). My concern is that this could either look truly sick, or completely cheesy as a finished product, thoughts? My buddy does the paint for cost of product so I could always repaint it I guess, but the black chrome look is harder to remove.

i know that powder coating the frame and wheels is awsome (i have an 05 so mine are already black) not so sure about anodizing the frame but the forks would look cool anodized (thats what i'm doing to mine when i send them to sv race shop) and painting is up to your tastes the whole idea of a street fighter is to modify the bike so its the way you want it to look. i think the snake skin idea would look nice if done well.

i guess my fear is that it will look bling, rather than stealthy and mean. guess I'll have to see what it looks like. Biggest problem, is there is no winter here so i have to just be willing to climb back in my cage for a month.
