June 9th I was ass kissed by the Toyota. I'm not going to post all of the pics of the accident, I'll just link the original thread to show what the bike looked like after the accident. 07 R1
This is my work in progress. I still don't know if I want to have her resurrected back for the street or make her track only. The only pieces of plastic that were salvageable were the air intake pieces. I picked up the swingarm and rear rim from the R1 forum and got the subframe from my mechanic. There's a ton of parts to list that I aren't salvageable so I'm just going to list things as I go along and replace them. So far with parts and labor I'm $800 into getting the R1 back together.

Plastics coming off and how she's going to most likely sit until I get to NY
So far so good. Can't wait to get more parts and see the final product. I'll update more when there is more work done and parts ordered.

I vote for a track bike. You can always throw some lights on to make it street legal when you want to. Sad to see her all wounded and sad like that. Is the swingarm bent?! It looks twisted.
"Multiple track days are needed every 12 month period to keep performance of the nut between bars and seat within an acceptable range. Failure to do so could result in a loss of talent in the nut. Crashing, "squidding it up" and illusions of awesomeness could occur.".
Good luck man. Can't wait to see how it all looks put back together and good as new!
