They're pretty flat stock but that one looks to have a concave top. Might be an optical illusion I guess.

So you guys think the tank is bent? I thought it was or the rear sub it just looks crooked from the back.


Guy please keep in mind I traded a busted ass 97 bmw 740i for this, I estimate the car was worth ~ a grand, I truly think I can sink a grand in to the bike and get 2500 for it.

175-Pipe,forks and headset- forum member
525- plastics painted from bliss star
$35 fairing ss bolt kit
$65 tank
$200 aftermarket projector headlight

Dumb idea? Or should I hold out for a part out and snag all stuff used?

If the tank is dented and the subframe is tweaked then it's very likely a stuntbike. What makes you think the forks are bent?

I'm no expert but its obvious that the bike was abused. Converted to a fighter? Looks to me like it went a few rounds with an articulated lorry.

Mine don't look pretty and it came with a whole host of problems but at least the guy told me about them so i knew what I was getting into. Here the danger is you don't know whats lurking. I would not put any money into it.
