This build thread won't be like a lot of the others on here... It will be long periods between mods, but I'll try to post a lot about my riding experiences in here.
So back in 2010 my roommate (and best friend for the last 11yrs) asked me to go to Cincinnati to look at a bike with him. It was a 2007 CBR600rr with 3,000 miles. It had a 520 chain conversion, -1/+2, a speedo healer, and steel break lines. He told the guy he wanted it, and the next weekend (during a level 3 snow storm) we went and got it.
On our way back
Over the next two year, he added about 7,000 miles to it with a few mods. He got a rear pitbull stand, a ebay front stand, tech spec tank grips, double bubble windscreen, some different grips and watsen flush mounts. Due to having to move to Chicago for work, he sold the bike to his gf's dad.
After only putting about 300 miles on it, he parked it and decided to sale the following spring.
So this past April I was able to buy the bike that my best friend owned!
After getting it home and unloaded.. (dead battery)
Went and picked up a battery and got her running, but still no insurance for a few days.. so I washed her up.
The rear tag bracket had broken off during his ride back from the dragon, so I ordered a FE from CBRHeaven
After that, I removed the sticker from the windscreen and rode the sheeeit out of her!
