Just picked up an 04 rc with 3400 miles.

Well I decided to rejoin the rc51 world. I just bought myself a 04 Nicky Hayden replica bike with only 3400 miles. It has an undertail, leo vince exhaust, and as far as I know that is it. I plan on doing the flapper mod and pcIII if one is not already on there. I pick it up in two weeks and can not wait. Currently in the garage is a 2006 GSXR 1000 with yosh pipe, pcIII, bmc race filter and other goodies. Its a fun bike but I miss the V-twin so for know Ill have two bikes until I get the gixxer sold. I also had a 07 1000rr that was worked over. I am huge Nicky Hayden fan so this is a real treat for me.

Welcome. So you had an RC before huh? That's cool. That's a great find, only 3400 miles.
What about that windscreen? looks dark to me. Aftermarket?

I had an 01 for a riding season. A kid hit in a parking lot when he was backing up so it was pieced together. It was a fun bike for sure. The windscreen looked stock with a repsol sticker on the top of it but on a further look it could be aftermarket. I plan to do a dark double bubble. It has 5 repsol stickers on it. two on the tail, two below the hrc sticker, and on on the windscreen.

Good stuff. I like the look of the factory windscreen better than a double bubble. But I wouldn't change my double bubble cause it's so much more effective against helmet buffeting for me.
Man, this is going to be a long two weeks...
of waiting...
Cheers
