So a few weeks ago I picked up an 03 954RR in pretty rough shape. I dont think the oil was ever changed, both shocks were blown, the tank was all banged up. frame was scratched and ugly... Definitely need some TLC and some cash to make her whole again. Right now she is almost finished, so I will post a few pics from the build. I dont have a whole bunch so I will just post what I have.
Here is she is the day I got her and brought her home (i rode it home like this... no brakes, no lights, misfiring... thank god i got home lol)
I decided I wanted to build a repsol replica (with my twist), since it's an 03 and thats the only year they did the Repsol livery. I ordered a new tank that wasnt all banged up and had it sprayed repsol orange, I also got a 1000rr rear wheel from an 07 and used this since its a little bit wider and im running a 190 rear, i also got this painted to match the tank. I resprayed the front wheel black.
Installed some new chain, sprockets, tires, grips, brake pads, levers, tank pad, swingarm spools, new headlight and the fairing bracket that bolts to the neck of the frame, since it was pretty banged up. I repainted the entire frame and the subframe, the front rotors and rear undertail and degreased the whole bike. Took the swingarm off off and degreased it and buffed it out, it looks brand new!
and here she is after the first ride after I got her back to a rideable condition with my gsxr:
I took an angle grinder to the oem exhaust and made it into a megaphone style slip on that a lot of guys like to run on their bikes. I never understood why they were paying $50-150 for something they could just make out of their stock exhaust?
She is about 80% complete right now, I'm still waiting on the plastics to be delivered and I have to figure out why the tach isn't working. Other than that shes almost done!
I'll get some more pics when shes all finished
