Hi guys & girls,

My name's Andy & I'm from Perth in Western Australia.

I'm currently rebuilding an unloved 1996 GSXR750SRAD I rescued from a customers workshop.

It had been sitting for about 3 years - uncovered & with all sorts of crap piled up around it. I didn't really need another bike
but you just can't leave them sitting there can you?

No doubt I'll have plenty of questions for the more knowledgeable amongst you - until then I'll have a look around to see what
you're all up to on here.

Cheers, Andy

Welcome. I'm sure there are some members that have/had a vintage bike like that and can give pointers.

Any pics of the rescued bike in it's current state?

How do you know east from west when you're hanging upside down from the bottom of the Earth?
