Picked up a wrecked 2001 Honda RC51 last week. Sold my SV650 to fund the project, looking forward to a larger v-twin. Have owned a CBR 929, Yamaha R1, and Aprilia SXV 550 in the past.
So far the parts list of needs is:
Chain and sprockets
2 Two Brothers exhaust hangers
Fairing set, Ebay
Want to trade the chrome wheels for stockers I can refinish and powdercoat (anybody want to trade?)
As it arrived yesterday. Beat up and riced. But it starts and runs good!
Will be receiving a whole new fairing set. Previous owner wrecked it, stopped paying on it, and it was repo'd and sold at auction. Clear title.
I think "Stitch" is a fitting name for two reasons. A rebuilt wreck and looks like Stitch from Lilo and Stitch.
Fork seals blown, have a new set on order for $25. Probably trade chrome wheels for some stockers.
The better side, but it has been down on this side before.
Two Brothers exhaust sounds good, but pretty janky with broken exhaust hangars.
Road rash on the left pipe and can.
