New RC Owner

Well ive wanted an RC for a long time and finally got one, ive also owned an 05' R6 raven, 05 F4i(split seat conversion of course), and a 03 R1. Bought this bike pretty rough, its a 2000 with 9300 miles on it, it had been wrecked and had a bent fork-a few bent brackets-stripped out lower triple tree, blah blah could go on. Finally started it again last night after about 3 months of finding parts and such, it was completely stock when i got it other than a PCII so everything else is new, also a PCIII

The bike was previously a red/white bike but now has been converted to the black SP2 style, the tank is still not painted in these pictures also.

EDIT-BTW yes i know the exhaust can is backwards on the left side of the exhaust-new can has been ordered

Nice project bike. It's coming along nicely.
What did you do with the bent fork?

No idea man, bought them used like that. It is a right muffler with the ends switched. Guessing they bought a right replacement one on accident. They both have matching number plates though.

Well, you can laugh at my footpeg and exhaust in "SP2 exhaust" thread. Besides the obvious story of a lowside, getting these pegs has been a 3 month endeavor. And they're still not here...
