    Take a close look at the panels, they are all wrong and they are dented and scratched to hell.

    Also the clutch is slipping and there are a few other engine probs.

    My fault for not putting this in my post.

    It will end up in sbk colours

    Isn't it a bit stupid that everyone is modding a bike with the same mods all over the place? All the bikes end up as identical as if they were stock!
    Today when people talk of "living through hell", it usually means that their appeal against unfair dismissal has been delayed, or the builders next door have been very noisy for several weeks. For the millions of soldiers in the trenches of the First World War, their experiences of Hell on Earth were beyond anything those of us born into Britain's most blessed generation can possibly imagine.

    Paint it pink and purple with yellow spots. Then it'll have an 'original' paint job...

    Tempting, I do have a spare set of fairings, but I have a mate who is just finishing his art degree and want him to do a nice lfame job on them, like the paint job on the preview pics of the 2007 hayabusa (but without the Kanji of course!)

    yeah as said on msn kev, great deal with the bike.

    As can see what matt is saying, me for example with my RS it has plenty of mods which I class as basic bolt ons which helps the performance as well as making the bike look alot better.

    I think there's only SJ who has gone into 'Real' mods.

    thats a great price considering its still hpi clear & running bit of tlc & it'll be free motoring untill you sell.

    thanks for that mention tecky, imo my bike aint worth jack untill its back in one piece
    for now i think its safer to think of me as the pratt who tore his bike to bits & bought some stuff
