02 RC Track Build

Paid a little more than I wanted but this bike had a lot of parts on it already.
Photos are of initial cleaning and bodywork strip to see where I was at build wise.
Plan is build this as a track/race bike to run some vintage classes.
First pic is at owners picking it up

Forks, Shock and Swingarm off. Going to send the forks and shock to 35motorsports . Swingarm will get refinished battery leaked and ruined the powder coat.

Looks like you got a bike with some nice parts on it.
If you have the tail off again could you take a close up picture of how the wiring harness goes by the rear coil and where it goes through the subframe?

Thanks so it looks like the main harness just goes between the coil and passenger foot peg mounts?
