I like the way her clothing matches the bike colour, far better than dressing her in one of Gus' frocks.

Still, with what you paided, your skill and attention to detail, plus your uncanny knack in finding rare parts, I think you're on a winner.

It looks like a good buy for someone of your skills Gus. Hope the frame is straight.  You're set if it is.

I guess as you strip it down Gus, you'll catalogue what's broken and what's not.  Any idea of whether the internals are ok?

Subframe is slightly  bent, but its a separate piece so a big hammer should be able to fix that . Motor turns over in 5th turning the back wheel .
One front disk bent .

Buy a new Sub frame. It'll save hours of pissing about trying to get it bent back straight. The new ones made of cast alloy normally just snap. Looks like a great project to me

It actually looks better like that Gus - no obviously broken bits staring you in the face. Was the steering damper a standard fit item on the "R" model? Certainly looks factory.

They fitted them as a result of "some" riders claiming poor handling ................hence the name widow-maker they acquired early on ( the early s models )  http://forums.cycleworld.com/showthread.php?p=681281
Looks like you scored a bargain there Gus .

Looking good Gus. I presume the SV1000 ECU should be the same? You'll be addign a Power commander anyway for fuel mapping right?

I got a ecu from E-Bay for $150 . This things bog stock right down to the Unleaded Fuel decals so no P\Comm  going on .
I imagine when the ecu turns up that's when the " why wont it go " problems will start .

It's still worth more in parts if you can't get it going.
There's a complete RWC red and white in Bairnsdale going for $3800. I'm damn near tempted myself.  Was over 5k at Christmas.

Don't give up mate. Imagine if Oscar Goldman had given up on Steve Austin? Lee Majors would have been out of a job. We have the technology, we can rebuild him. I just hope it doesn't cost $6,000,000.Smile
