The bike looked like this... before the engine went pop (dropped a valve doing wheelies, something tells me I need to learn to change gear!! :laughingr )

Well with the engine out and everything all grubby and tatty from off road use and general broken-ness.. I decided to fix her up as a bit of a project... the bike went pop in February but I've only just been able to afford to start any work on it..! expensive stuff these bikes :(

Finally started work on the front end... new wheel bearings/seals and a good clean of the front, all lights removed, new number board but not fitted.. got to remove the dash before it'll fit properly... haven't started on the rear end yet so the rear isn't as clean as the front yet. That's being started on soon, although I need to buy a new subframe seat and airbox first to convert to 04/05 single fender/sidepanel type.

525 engine stuff turning up Monday so engine will be fixed shortly... will post more pics when the rest of stuff is done.. (bike is a 450 but dropped a valve a few months ago, haven't been able to fix due to £££ costs but finally getting there, and decided to go 525 as it's cheaper than 580 etc but still good power increase!! )

To do;

Red bull fender graphic to be fitted
White number board graphics to be fitted
Crash bobbins to be fitted
New seat
New gripper seat cover
New rear subframe
New rear plastics
New airbox
Fit the 525 engine bits.
SX exhaust system
SMR Master Cylinder
Hand guards
New chain and sprockets (1 down on the front, will be mad!)
GPR stabiliser (steering damper)
New tyres too.. something more slick on the rear! Keeping the wet front though for off road grip!
Get rear shock rebuilt
New fork seals
Suspension set up
+++ loads more...

More pics soon as I get on with the "project" ;)
