Tell me what you guys think. I purchased this 954 about a year ago and have completed rebuilding it. The story was some kid bought the bike from the original owner and rode it for a short while not registered it in his name. He got chased by the cops one night and while running from them and laid the bike down. I bought the bike several months later with a replacement (Clean) title (I saw the original destroyed, because it was signed over, but never registered) and acquired the parts to rebuild it. Here's the finished product. The bike rides, with no problems. It's got just over 10K on the clock. The only thing I didn't/can't fix (as I can't weld aluminum, or have access to someone who does) is a scrape and dent in the frame. I've been over this thing and asked others. Everyone I've inquired about it says it can be fixed. You be the judge. I've replaced all of the plastics and tank with 2003 Black and Titanium panels that include some color-changing blue/green/purple highlights around the factory graphics. The D&D pipe that on it has been shortened and the bracket still has some rash from the accident. I'm including some pics, but I have more. I also have a vid clip of the bike running I'm trying to make smaller and load on putfile.com. The bike is obviously not perfect, but it is actually pretty decent. It still gets compliments on it's repaired appearance. I've replaced the left clipon, upper and lower stays (with new OEM pieces), the left rearset and left mirror. I have another rear wheel for it, but am unable to change it as a friend permanently borrowed my rear stand. I'm looking for around $4250.00 for the completed bike and a few extra odds and ends. Let me know what you guys think. The bike is located in central/northern New Jersey. Here are some more pics: Webshots Community - nyracer
Just click on the bike pics there.

Is the year/vin sticker deal missing(Is it a problem if it is?)? And you have a clear title in hand no liens or anything? Kinda confused about the destroyed comment.
Anyways might be more interested after your replies, thanks. Also does the rear wheel need replacing or is it you just want to swap it since it is chrome?

You know, I didn't even notice about the sticker, I have to check for it on Monday when I get home. But, the VIN number is on the steering head and engine, so there's no problem. I do have a clean title in hand ready to go.I just told the story about the titles, because the one I have says "replacement" that's all. Let me know if I can help with anything else.

I emailed you so more questions, thanks for the quick reply to last one as well.
:freebird:drooling over color ..

Thanks. That's why I changed the color, as I liked it so much better then all off the color combos, especially the original black/silver combo.
Also, I replied to your PM, as well as the others I recieved.
Lastly. I forgot to answer the question about the rim. I feel the rim has to be changed at the was damage on the edge/lip of the original rim, which is still on the bike, holding air and rotating fine, but I wouldn't trust it. So, I purchased the other rim for the bike, it just happened to be polished.
Thanks

Just an update, I'll be leaving for Oklahoma on Tuesday, the 29th. I'd like to have the bike sold by then if possible. If not it will have to come with me. Thanks.
