Hello from England

Hi all,

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.

Great work,


Russ
