Just got myself a 2001 rc51. Been after the right one for ages, and a mate stumbled across one by chance. He knew I wanted one, so after some haggling I am now the proud owner.
It has been standing outside for the last 2 years so it is suffering from a bit of neglect, but nothing that cannot be sorted. Got the bike back to my workshop and checked the levels, put a battery booster on it and it fired up on the button. Not bad for a bike that hasn't turned a wheel in 2 years. Currently I have the bike stripped down, cleaning and replacing everything that needs doing. Will try and get some pictures up when I get a chance.
The bike has full Honda history up until if was taken off the road, 13400 miles, never dropped or raced and completely standard, exactly what I have been looking for.
Been having a look around your great site, and there is lots of great info to help me get the bike back to perfect condition.
Welcome to the forum and glad you finally got your hands on the torque monster!!!
