*FYI - This is basically a copy of an ad I have on San Diego CL but for $200 less.*

PLEASE READ ENTIRE AD - PLEASE READ ENTIRE AD - PLEASE READ ENTIRE AD

I bought this bike wrecked last year and have been building it back up into a track bike I planned to track/race, but my priorities have changed and I'm going to have to let someone else take over this project. Track days are well out of my budget right now, so I'm getting rid of the bike and all the extra parts I have to go with it as a package for someone who wants to get into the sport.

The bike: 2007 CBR600RR with a "Parts Title" only, so it cannot be registered for street use. I had the frame checked and straightened by Dr. John's Frame Straightening in Anaheim (they do a lot of team race bikes and have been in the business for decades.) The bike has an Akrapovic slip-on exhaust, but other than that its pretty much stock. The bike will come with a complete set of Optimal brand race fairings with a Puig windscreen and Stomp Grip tank pads. It also has a Tripage race upper fairing stay and Renthal clip-ons that aren't installed yet.

Extras: The bike will come with all the extra 07 CBR parts I have (I parted out another one, so I have quite a few.) There are two large plastic bins full of parts for the bike, including an extra swing arm, rear shock, wiring harness, fork, front brake calipers, and a lot more. Everything is functional, and you can keep it as spares or sell it on eBay and make hundreds of dollars off it, I don't care. I'm just too busy to mess with it anymore.

I also have a handful of fairings for the bike, including one lower, one mid, and a tail section (all are black.) Everything will go with the bike. I'll also add a Pirelli Supercorsa SC2 front tire that was taken off a Ducati Panigale, used for a few exhibition laps (I'm running another set of these tires on my R1 and they are amazing tires) so you'll only need a rear to get started. Pit Bull stands are NOT included.

Missing: In order to be a complete track bike, the bike will need rear sets, a new rear tire, and a few minor fixes here and there that are all very simple. As project bikes go this is probably the easiest one you will ever find.

I write for the motorcycle industry, can be found on multiple motorcycle forums, and have a good reputation to uphold, so there's no scamming whatsoever going on here. Just a good deal on a perfect track bike with tons of extra parts, if you're willing to put a little work into finishing it up.

NOTE: PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME ABOUT INDIVIDUAL PARTS. MY PART-OUT IS OVER, ALL THIS WILL GO TO THE NEW OWNER OF THE BIKE!

WILLING TO SHIP AT BUYER'S EXPENSE. CAN DELIVER LOCALLY.

stock suspension?

Can you go into detail on whatelse the bike needs besides rearsets and a few minor details?

I know you are adamant about not being contacted about individual parts but I have to ask about that Akrapovic slipon. I am even willing to swap with my stock exhaust if that makes it more enticing.

Sure thing. Stock rear shock. The front forks say Race Tech on them but I won't make the claim that they have Race Tech internals in them because I got them that way. So I'm selling it as a stock suspension bike.

When I say small stuff, its honestly pretty minor; probably stuff I'll do if I find the time just to make the bike more salable. For example, the carbon fiber tip of the Akra is broken, I was going to fix that; the support for the radiator (where it mounts to the engine block) is missing; the coolant tube containing the radiator cap is kind of smashed, so I planned to replace it; some of the DZUS fasteners are missing so replacements need to be ordered; stuff like that. I have most of the parts already.

Like I mentioned, as projects go, this is a close to being done as you'll probably ever find. I really should just spend a few hundred bucks and take the time to finish it, but I'm just too busy with other stuff, and really, I'm just over it. This started as a labor of love that I was excited about finishing, but working on it just to see it hauled away in someone else's truck just bums me out. I'd rather let someone else finish it the way they want.

I knew people would ask about parts. The way I see it, if I'm selling everything as a package, but then selling parts individually one by one, I'm kind of whittling away the value of the package and not being a completely honest seller.

I don't want to make a deal and have the buyer think I cherry-picked the good stuff for extra cash. That's why I said it will all go together; the buyer can do whatever he wants with it then!

Regardless, the Akra will stay because it adds value to it as a track bike. Thanks for asking though. :thumbup:

Do you have any paperwork on the frame straightening stuff?
Yes sir, but I'll have to dig it up. I'll be glad to refer any interested parties to Dr. John's so they can vouch for it personally.

They're the go-to guys for frames in SoCal as I understand it; they're known mainly for custom cruiser stuff but they do a lot of team race bikes too. The frame just needed slight adjustment, but since the insurance company declared it totaled, I wanted to be sure I was building on a frame that was true.

I'm just curious as to how badly the frame was bent.

Do you have details on the original crash that totaled the bike?

Sorry to bombard you with questions I just want to make sure I'm not looking at a project you abandoned because the damage to the frame or whatever was in excess of what you expected.

I don't consider this being bombarded with questions at all. Anyone whose thinking about spending thousands of dollars should ask plenty of questions IMO.

Anyway its nothing like that; I just have a lot less money and especially time to mess with it and I can two one of two things; finish it just to sell it and make a little more, or sell it as is and take less. I'm just doing the latter.

For someone with a more time than me that doesn't mind tinkering a little, its perfect. All the work from here on is easy/fun stuff (changing tires, putting track parts on, changing fluids, prettying up the bodywork, etc.)

I'm happy to give any info you want, and I'll touch base with John to ask exactly what he did to the frame. As I remember it was just out of alignment slightly; it took them like an hour to fix. Any interested buyer is more than welcome to inspect it and I can provide photos of whatever.

I just want to help clarify MeanOnes post a little bit.

Dr. John specializes in frames. Brand new Factory machines with 0 miles are always "straight" within a certain specification. Races teams will commonly take their frames to specialists to have the aligned to a tighter specification. Meaning they just got a little straighter. This improves handling and feedback.

The idea of improving the spec on a high performance machine is very common. Factories mass produce bikes and while they are all within spec, they can all be better. Spec just simple means "that's close enough". You can take a brand new motor after a break-in period and measure everything and it will all be within spec. If you take those tolerances and make them tighter (in most cases) you can typically free up a few HP. Things like improving clearances and increasing compression will almost always net more useable power.

So just because the frame was straightened doesn't necessarily mean it was out of alignment. I've seen this bike (and did a lot of work on it) and I can vouch that this bike and frame are in very good condition (minus the obvious).

Thanks Ldn, I was hoping you'd chime in on this!

Ldn is the talented gentleman who helped me with a lot of the work this bike needed to convert it into a track weapon. :shakehand (Thanks for all that man, its too bad I won't be seeing you at Chuck...not on this bike anyway.)

And what you said is correct, and that's how Dr John's explained it to me as well. For the race teams they work with, they actually straighten the frames of brand new bikes for this exact reason.
