So last week I bought a crashed S1000R, and decided I am going to bring it back to life! Muahahahaha! I love working on bikes, and I love the process of restoring something, maybe even more than the finished product.
Below I've got some photos of the bike when I got it, and when I started to tear it apart to see the damage and what needs to be replaced. Of course I always try to calculate the price of how much it would cost to take up such an endeavour, and somewhat keep to a boundary I set up for myself. I've scavenged for parts and thanks to some members on this forum and across other platforms was able to acquire almost everything that I needed. I'm only missing small pieces that are a.) are not important at the moment or b.) are a bitch to find.
