This was my plan for the 2022 20th and final Dirt Bag Challenge.

I've had *stuff* laying around my shop for, in some cases, over 3 decades, and this was an opportunity to put it all together in one project.

The bike is a custom frame project that brings together a ZRX 1200 motor (purchased to replace the original motor in the only bike I've ever bought new off the showroom floor), the swingarm & rear wheel from the ZRX, a set of R1 front forks, wheels & brakes, a GS1000s fairing -- I owned one, and it was possibly my favorite bike ever. I crashed it, then it was stolen, and this fairing happened to be off when it left.

This one piece is the embryo for this entire build.
