New award added

The Outstanding Restoration Award has been added to the lineup. It is a symbol of a Phoenix, the mystical creature that has risen from the ashes reborn, not unlike the restorations our members have shared with us in the Classics forum.

Our first awards have already been issued to Simpson for his CB360, Kristen for her DT250 and to 1000RRHooligan for his RVF400.

Surely I'm forgetting someone for something so please let me know.

I hope to earn this award for myself some day and am very proud of the accomplishments of those who've already earned it.

How old does the bike have to be to qualify, and can it be restomod??

My FXR is 18 years old, and I Changed it from an FXRT to an FXLR by taking off the fairing and touring bits, and putting on stock FXLR tank and fenders and wideglide forks. Also updated it in the drivetrain dept, S&S engine, 6 speed, Custom built 2>1 exhaust,I have gone through just about the whole bike.

It started like this, you cant see where the fairing was broken or the cracked bag, with a tired 80" Evo

this is the only shot of it partially torn down


a couple right after I finished it last spring




Here is what it looks like now, set up with the corbin 2-up and saddlebags

Thank you sir,
I really appreciate it, It the biggest project I have completed to date, and put a huge amount of effort, time and way too much cash into it. I learned a lot in the process and the bike is truly mine.
I know I have posted pics of it from rides in the past, but now that I think about it I never went back to my original project thread and posted the final pics, I should have done that! I should do that with the final specs of whats on it.

The 250 is a definite, it's obvious you went all the way down with it. Tell us more about the Radian. Not trying to down play it, just need more information. Did you go down to the frame with it?

As far as multiple awards, absolutely YES! Each one is a labor of love and a full job deserves the acknowledgment. I still need to refine the image though, was considering a silver phoenix image to represent 2 and a gold phoenix to represent 3. We have some members who I'm sure could easily have a dozen blue phoenix awards.

Does it need to be a street bike? Have two wheels? and Have been a classic?

I have a little labor done on my TRX450R that may qualify? Well, lets just say, ATV Sport Magazine thought it was good enough for an article?

Just a few mods here and still had some things to remove. I went down to just a frame.


The only stock component is the Frame itself.

its been a while in the making, started b4 i left for school, kept it around for when i got back, that was 3 yrs ago now so in the works for 5-6 yrs i hope this summer to get the bugs worked out of it and ride it a little then maybe sell it. i conforms to all the vintage racing requirements in the area. just unbolt lights and stuff and take her racing. well almost i never did the wireties or anything, wanted people to know its never been raced but could be easy enough.
