I reckon the eBay founders can afford to build a new empire out of the money ive been pumping through there lately Ive been keeping busy buying parts i need and some I dont (silly spur of the minute things that hopefully pay off).
Some of the new additions to the shed include a new tank. I got quotes for ~$900 to fix and spray the current damaged one so i decided to buy a mint one for $260 and get that sprayed. This meant id have TWO tanks for less than the price of getting one fixed! Deal! I still havent decided on a paint scheme but i dont really have to worry about that until next year when i a) save up some money b) stop changing my mind haha Its a hard decision and I cant stuff it up cos this paint is gonna stick around for a long time!
I ended up getting a new tail section and lower cowl cos the ones that came with the Ninja were pretty fucked and i didnt want this bike to be mutton dressed as lamb. Im trying to avoid the poverty-stricken look of a stunt bike haha
The rim has arrived and is straight as an arrow (PHEW!). I fitted the Gilles rearsets and am pretty happy with their look. The german instructions were pretty shite and the accompanying pics were woeful but i got em fitted after 2 hours of messing around.
A BIG thanks goes out to Robwas for letting me grab some much-needed parts for a steal! I FINALLY found a mint battery tray on eBay after looking 5 times/day for 6 weeks. And wouldnt you know it, as soon as i buy it, another 2 show up within the following day...when it rains it pours!
Im still waiting on a few small things to arrive so i can build her up and get her over the pits but its coming together nicely I bought a headlight mask, fat bar conversion kit and a bellypan which all cost a small fortune but my reasoning is that you only live once and why buy something you dont really want just cos its cheaper?
Here are a few pics of bling and her current condition hopefully it'll be a matter of weeks before i get her rego'd
