Beautiful Disaster (2004 SP2)
I recently purchased my first RC51. A 2004 that, being a big Hayden fan was the year I have always hoped to have. Being a Ducati owner and WSBK fan I have always wanted an RC51 but for one reason or another never put one in the stable. I came across a deal that I could not pass on and am now the owner of a bike in need of a lot of love. She had been sitting in a barn with around thirty other bikes for the past ten years with only a little over 5000 miles on the clock. I don't know much of her past but she does have a clear title, a running engine and what seems to be a straight frame.
It is my hope that fellow forum members with more educated eyes for this bike can help me come up with a parts list to get her back on the road and working towards her former glory. My plan is to put her back on the street as I already have two dedicated track bikes. I am away for the next two months but would like to start rounding up parts as soon as I can so that I can jump right into her once I am state side again.
Thank you all for your help and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you and sharing my progress with you.
