New RC51 owner in St. Louis
I just brought home my new-to-me RC51 SP2 project last night.
I've been riding my CBR 600RR for nearly 10 years now, a 600F3 prior to that. I've been riding bikes my whole life, and though I have never owned a 1000 class bike, I've ridden plenty. The 600 was all I ever really "needed" for power, but man, there's something different about the V twin that I liked enough to buy one.
I've been on the lookout for an RC for some time, but I'm the type to buy wrecks for cheap and rebuild them, and you don't see too many of these bikes around here, let alone in rough shape.
This bike is rough, it's missing parts, and it's going to take a while to piece back together... but I got it very cheap, and it runs.
If we had a decent track in the area, I'd consider building it up into a track bike, but as we don't, and it came with a title... I'm going to put it back to a decent factory street bike.
I'll start a build thread in the appropriate section when I get started, and I'm sure I'll be asking for some pictures of how things are supposed to look, as well as some model-specific questions. Thanks in advance!
I added a picture of how she sits now, as well as the last project (which I do intend to keep forever.... garage is starting to get crowded.)
