Hard work paid off!

This summer I picked up this 1000rr for stupid cheap because I wanted a project/trackday bike. I stripped it down to nothing and rebuilt everything except the engine. (It's a Honda, completely solid!) I had a few bumps in the road along the way, but I finished it tonight. Now I just have to wait for warm weather.

I still want an akrapovic exhaust, but other than that I think I am done spending money on it.

Mods include:
Rizoma brake reservoir
Shorty levers
K&n filters
Flapper mod
520 conversion
Tripage third eye
Pc3
Two bros slip on
Driven d3 grips
Hotbodies flush mounts
Integrated rear taillight
Custom machined bar ends made by me
Custom machined spools made by me
Oem solo cowl
Honda carbon fiber tank pad
Honda carbon fiber fuel lid cover
Competition werkes fender eliminator

Thanks to everybody on here who hooked me up with the parts I needed!!!

When I got it:

I bought it in August and just finished. I worked on it slowly. Lots of gathering parts. I really enjoyed doing it, and learned a ton of tricks and trouble shooting methods. Thanks for the compliment!
