With apologies to the late, great Boyd Coddington I have borrowed the title of this project from him. Project Junk Yard Dog is born. This will be another very slow project as funds and time allow. I bought the bike as a donor for project 007, the red 1200 I completed recently. 2017-11-01 12.32.19 by Grant Duguid, on Flickr It yielded forks, yokes and wheels, all period correct for 007. The rest of the bike was in such bad condition I seriously considered breaking it for spares, but it pains me to do that.

And yes, I overpaid for it as I was told it had (becoming) rare 4C cams (it didn't). First of all I need to sell a couple of bikes (hard in the current situation), then I can use these funds to start on this. I already have a decent set of 1200 crankcases and another cylinder block. I have the chance to buy (when I can afford it) the GSXR wheels, discs and 4 pots that I bolted on today.

Not sure yet, but I'm thinking of making it as light as I can, as minimal as I can and to hell with standard. My gold bike (POP) and my blue bike (Phoenix) already have the more modern tyres, wheels, discs, calipers etc so I know how good they make the bike. I would love to add a digital speedo, one-off bodywork and added lightness everywhere. Why do I do this? Why not?
