Isn't that a tail off the CBR? Looks similar to the bike Evad parted out many months back.

Looks kinda cool.

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Semper Fidelis

It looks like a CBR tail but the mounting holes are matching the RC's subframe. It is custom made for sure. It's up for grabs on eBay Germany

Looks like its meant to be an extendo-tank of sorts...

...loose translation of the ebay listing;

This article is a special production of the company . CARBO MOTO . The tail section which was separated by a monocoque (tank cap, tank , rear one-piece) for alterations , if the tank front resealed and in the seat a gas cap is installed , be used as a tank and rear combination. Stock fuel pump fits on the Aludichtring . Fuel tank capacity 6.5 liters . If the tank is cut out , this can be used as a normal self-supporting rear . Must be adapted to the front original tank.

1986 Honda Interceptor...learned on it
1988 Yamaha Radian...wheelied on it
1990 Yamaha FZR...friend totaled it
1997 Honda Shadow...wife stole it
1998 Yamaha YZF...noob tree'd it
2002 Honda 954RR...just sold it
2005 RC51...finally found it

...if I stop runnin' the evil little clowns will get me!

Oh yes.... Deffo something missing Don't try to fill it with GAS !

Looks like crap to me honestly as it has been butchered by someone for some reason.

BTW - It came up for sale some time last year as well, I suppose this guy ( the buyer at that time ) has not much interest in it either.

Interesting that it also has a mount for an undertail exhaust.
