My new Blackbird

Discussion in 'Showcase' started by bionic man, Dec 23, 2012.

  1. G'day all. Bought this 07 bird last week from a local bloke with only 4800km on the clock (y). Being a truckie he never had the time to ride it. What a find she's like new ;)
    She has Screaming demon cans with s/s Delkevic headers. (sounds sweet) Carbon fibre dash inlay, c/f rear hugger, dark bubble screen, ventura rack & bag + full tank cover + bag. Also rear fender eliminator & trick blinkers, trick levers & bar ends.
    Today i fit a sheepskin seat cover for my bionic back & new fork seals ( They were leaking, BLACKBIRD. a downside form sitting there for so long without use) bla bla bla here's some pics some pics cheers

  3. Good find mate. My old man has a bird and he loves it. It's the matte black with gold wheels though. I find it a real easy big bike to ride. Very very smooth.
  4. Well done, looks absolutely mint. :)
