So what's next?
Posted by Beemer on Tuesday, November 18, 2003 5:48 PM
I guess I'm the firsy one here.
What's next? Perhaps the Tamiya Yoshimura Hiyabusa or maybe the Dragon 1/9 Beemer. So many choices.

Mach,
Great looking bikes. I have both in my stash, although, I have yet to build the Kawi.
Might just have to stop by here some more.

I’ll lend a digital camera soon so I can show my newly built Suzuki GSX 750 Katana.
I think it turned out all-right with a three-tone color sceme and almost everything airbrushed (I just hate brushpainting - especially the intricate shapes of the engine and frame).

Yep, that's the same one. I thought I would post it here to get some pictures going (even though it can be seen on my page). Eventually I'll remove them from here just to do my part of keeping the site faster for other folks.

Thanks for the compliments Beemer and historyinscale.

The bikes are fun every now and then (I've built 3 and have about 8 more to build) but I'm a car builder at heart. I build the bikes when I need a change.

Hey Mach,
I really like that Ducati. I've never attempted to build a bike kit, I've heard they're a challenge. I'll have to pick one up.
Keep the great pictures coming.

Thanks,

It's actually not that difficult of a kit, it's tamiya so it all fit's. The worst and most difficult part is that the gas tank and the rear cowling are molded in halves, lengthwise, and have to have some careful filling and sanding to get a smooth join. Otherwise it was a great kit. I always keep a few motorcylce kits on hand to add some variety to building cars....

The Duck was a relatively easy build. As mentioned before, typically Tamiya.
I have built two of them so far and have a couple more to build.
My wife loves Ducatis, especially the 916 or the new 999.
