Here we go it has been a long time coming.  This is one of my bigger steps needing to get finished.  Here is a quick run down to catch everyone up.

This is my 01 900ss, 5200 miles, that was dropped (by the previous owner).  He tried to repair it, became bored with the project, let it sit for a year.  Then I showed up offer him $2000 for it, he took it and I wheeled it off.  I'm going to 'streetfighter', 'monster', superlight the SS whatever you want to call it.  Here's the progress.  Oh...did I mention that it was a schoolbus yellow frame, and metalic maroon fairings.

The day I picked it up...

the fairings...

the stripping process...

getting ready for bed...seat, uncovered (wife is recovering it with the leather you see on it)

engine and frame together again...

all tucked in for bed...assembly party to come soon!


More work to come! will post up as progress continues.  Right now I'm just trying to get her ridable again.  I don't have the expendable fortune to do what I want right away.  Ohlins complete set-up, Not stock clip-ons, 749/999 headlight setup, motogadets instrument panel, 02+ SS swing arm (maybe SSS), Corbin saddle, radical tail chop to monoposto, center-up exhaust or quad-e type.  Anyone that has these pieces hollar at me.  There is a lot more than just this to do.

I still need- (if anyone has these for sale)
-Left Clip-On and handlebar.
-Chain and front Sproket 14T
-Monster headlight (any mounting hardware also)
-Stock Adj Clutch Lever

 applause applause applause applause

I bow my head! How have you gotten the guts to do all this? I mean, for example, how to reconnect wires/ find the right bolts and understanding how it all works? Are you a professional? (If not, why not?)

thank you...no, not a professional, just learning as I go.  As for the wires...a lot of painters tape and sharpie labeling (in my own language) because I don't know what everything is. 

I actually get made fun of at work (Army helicopter pilot) that I just want to build bikes after the army...I don't need to fly.

Nice work! and nice post, too.
