Doesn't look that bad I suppose. You need a left rearset peg, rear seat, radiator, fairings, tank repaired and the chain looks rusted.

Re: Forum Bike Build Project

Looks like a few hours of work and you should be good to go.

Also while your playing around I would do a spark plug / oil change and throw on some smog block offs on there just for funzy

Re: Forum Bike Build Project

I would start with finding a radiator first. Get that installed with everything hooked up and go from there.

Plastics won't be hard to find. Everybody is tracking out there bikes and parting out the OEM Stuff.

Yeah I hope so. Like I said most likely lack of knowledge will be the things that's time consuming.

Thanks I'll keep that in mind, I do want to do a few upgrades if possible during the rebuild process. Not sure what smog block offs are though lol
