The good new is that it's a 2001 zx6 with a fresh 2007 zzr motor currently installed. The Bad in that it comes with title so no street action.....
The first order of business will be the fork rebuild and rear swap. I think of Race Tech and the Stock rear shock from the 08 ZX10. Replacing the rusted chain seem in order. From the look of the body I'll be replacing with race fairing.

Finially got a chance to peek at the bike .....







I'm trying to convince myself that with some work I can create something worth to taking to Jennings GP or Homestead later this year. Got it at a Damn good price, so with a little elbow grease I'll be able to get it into shape. Maybe it can surpass the pass:
and the current Garage King:

Will not the best of days for the build, The suspension guy is recommending that I replace both fork legs. The previous owner spray painted over top of the tubes but the left tube is trashed beyond repair. So I figure I'll take a few day to track down replacements, or a front end swap, or pick a different race bike platform. Not the News I was looking for, since the track day is just around the corner 6/25 at Jennings GP

The little ding in the frame looks like its from the bar ends. This frame is a purchased replacement. You're correct the brake lines will be changed and the fluid will be freshed up. But if any one has a decent front rim I'm in need of a replacement :(
