R1 Race Rep vs. Gixxer Race rep

Back in 2007 I decided to make a race rep out of my K5 GSXR 1000, I went with the Troy Corser Alstare Corona bike. I did everything I wanted to do to the bike and decided to sell it prior to moving overseas in 2009. When I came back to the states I stumbled across the 07 R1 (which I was told that it was the best R1 built to date) and decided to make another race replica. Once again I ordered my paint from Alsa and my decals from Red Racing parts in Italy. The bike is turning out nice but I think I may end up having to part with it. Nothing against the bike but it seems like I may be out of the country for a bit next year, and I'm not the guy to let a bike get dusty in a storage unit (bikes are built to ride). Although the R1 isn't completed which Replica do you like the best??






















more pictures of the GSXR can be seen here

Honestly, that GSXR looks pretty damn good, I just think the R1 looks more aggressive, more ferocious. But seriously, the paint on the suzuki is pretty sick.

Wow, more aggressive on the R1...thanks for the input. Don't forget to vote (its your right....jk). I'm curious because people ask me about the old bike all the time and always voice their opinion regardless I asked for it or not.

Both look great. You could have given both bikes Troy Corsers # that would have been cool.

Good Point... 11 would of been sharp as well, but #1 would of been even better if Haga would of won it in 07.

I'm not a fan of purple/yellow personally. I like the R1 scheme far more.

I love the paintwork on the gixxer, but I am a bit biased as I had a race rep gixxer myself.
