Project Carbon Overload

evening

Last week I took a huge gamble, spotted an S1000RR on eBay already modified to my taste, the thing is the guy owed 9000 on finance which threw off %99 of buyers. Travelled the 170 miles to London and thoroughly checked over all HP docs, drivers licence to name/address etc. Rang black horse and paid the 9000 of there and then. Filled in the V5 and left with over 5 boxes of standard parts.

All in all I think I got a very good bargain, apparently all the carbon is Ilmberger.

Paid 9000 for it, it's got 3000 miles on it. and god knows how much money he's spent on mods.

Sorted an integrated rear light out so I could dump the whole back end, now I just need to see if I can mould a decal in place, if not I'll get a 1 x 3 on the battery box by the shock.

Ilmberger carbon frame covers have arrived. Might even get the swingarm covers too.

Bike looks great dude (and the Gixxer was indeed sweet). Congrats on the purchase!

Also, now I don't feel so bad about all my CF bits now ...

my bloke aint fussed about plates mate lol, he only moans that he has to get on the floor in order to get my registration.


Removed those HUGE frame sliders today and fitted the ilmberger frame covers today, they look awesome and blend in all the other ilmberger carbon.

Got to be up at 5am for a because a mate wants to do a f**king photoshoot when the suns rising up in the peaks, I'll get some proper photos tomorrow.
