Here are a few teaser pics of the bike, taken from the Crashedtoys website. It's in my garage, and already stripped down quite a bit. I'll start another blog on that machine shortly, and have a link to this and my RC51 site.
Low miles -- only 6176!!
Damage is almost purely cosmetic -- side fairings, tail, etc. Shift and brake pedals are dented as well.
This alternator cover is scratched up as well, but no oil leaks -- some paint will take care of it, if I even bother...
Considering the condition, and the price I got it for, I can't believe it was written off. I may keep track of the costs publicly, but for now, I can say that I got it for 1/10th the price new... do the math!
The plan it to try to get it on track as inexpensively as possible. Things like a decent shock and a USD front end will cost, as well as some machining work to the front wheel. However, I'm gonna avoid going the full-fairing direction and create a machine similar to this ER6n that was raced in Europe. I've already found cheaper options to the side fairings, the headlight/bikini fairing, and am angling for a bellypan I can modify to make oil-retaining. I'm also going to see if I can fabricate a home-grown slip-on, using the zx10 TwoBros muffler I had from the supermono. I've changed the oil and fired up the bike, and it seems to run nice, at least on the stand... stay tuned.
