Motorcycle(s): bastardized ninja 250 (think land speed record with a sidecar) soon to swap a 500 engine

New member, long time lurker

Hey guys, I finally registered to the forum to be able to look at pictures.

I have an 05 ninja 250 with around 86,000 miles (first engine died at 85,750). I bastardized the bike by stripping all the fairings, painting the frame pink (turned orangeish sadly), putting the foot pegs on the rear, tucking all electronics under the seat - battery under tank, pod filter, and lowered it about 3-4". Now buildng a sidecar for it, and close to having a ninja 500 engine all ready to swap in.

Anyway, I probably won't be posting much, but maybe I can figure out how to load pictures and post some up

Hi and welcome!

Looking forward to seeing your bike. I can do TIG welding if you need any help with that sidecar.
