Sabotage 1999 SV650 rebuild
Hello everyone, I recently purchased two crappy sv650 to turn into one reliable functional ride. One bike have a blown engine (blue) and one front end damage (red). I'm using the bike with the blown engine to rebuild the one with front end damage. So far I've swapped the ignition switch, cluster, seats, engine covers (front end damage bike covers were leaking). I plan to swap the tail and tank. I purchased a belly pan, going to wrap the muffler, add fork boots, racetech springs, zx6r shock, check the valve (engine runs strong but have 50000 miles. After I sell the donor bike, i hope that my final cost will be around $1000 for a complete decent looking/running sv650.
When the bike is complete, this will be my fifth bike. Yz250 for dirt, 09 zx6r track bike, Roadstar for long trips, and my pride an 09 R1 street superbike build. Two bikes are not street legal, the R1 i never park it when I ride it because of theft concerns and the Road star is just too big that I just sit in traffic with cars. The sv will be my daily commuter to putter around town, avoid traffic and not have any theft concerns. It will likely get more mileage then all of my other bikes.
