    I picked this bike up at the beginning of December, a 2004 Honda CBR600RR. Considering all of the mods I believe I got a pretty decent deal at $2,100. The bike has never been on the road, it was purchased new with the intention of turning it into a track bike so it has never had a title. I did check this and had a state cop friend of mine verify it as well.

    Vortex Clip ons
    Sliders – need replaced
    Stainless brake lines
    Chain / sprockets
    Spools – need replaced
    Shorai Lithium Battery
    Jardine Headers
    Micron slip on
    Sharkskinz fairings
    Ohlins rear shock
    Ohlins fork internals
    Ohlins steering damper
    K&N filter

    Only thing it has to had is a new windshield, the previous owner dropped something on it a couple of days before I picked it up. I haven’t decided to replace the rearsets and replace the “custom” ones on there. I also plan on replacing the sliders. I believe they are Shogun but I am not sure, can anyone verify? I would like to go with the same ones again since these seem to do the job.

    Now for the pictures.

    First thing I did was start to remove all of the plastidip. The previous owner did not apply it nearly thick enough so it was a nightmare removing it all. It took several evenings.

    I did a little light body work to get it “acceptable”.

    Wet sanded and ready to spray.

    Primer on. The plastics are not in good shape at all. It has certainly been used and abused. Oh well, it’s a track bike!

    Welcome to RideCBR @lowcel – If you have any questions, mention me (like this: @admin).

    It looks like the bike has had a rough life.. but for $2,100 for a track bike.. it looks perfect. Is everything straight and solid? I would start ripping stuff off and sending it to the powdercoating shop.

    I do see some nice goodies on it too!

    Posted my last post before I saw the other pictures.. nice work so far. Looks like it’s coming together nicely. Can’t wait to see the final product.

    Next came some paint.


    Fitted the plastics to tape up the graphics.

    Added some blue to the front fender.

    Added some white to the rest of the fairings.

    A little more progress.



    Next I put the plastics back on the bike.

    Wow. She looks 100 times different with just the bodywork done. Nice job!

    I pretty much forgot that I had a vinyl cutter. I grabbed it and hooked it up and gave it a shot.

    Just in case I ever forget.

    I ordered some more vinyl to play around with and I went to town.

    Next I made an offer for a pair of rearsets on ebay. The seller accepted my offer of $175 shipped.

    Before.

    After.

    I also added a few more decals.

    Decided to take it outside to take a few pictures.






    Now it’s time to start the other side.

    Also playing around learning how to safety wire.

    Took the bike back inside and got to work on the other side of the bike.

    I did do one more on the right side first.

    Now, to the left side. Nice thing about being able to make my own decals if that I get tired of them and want to change something it will only cost a few cents. :D





    Just because was bored I took a picture from upstairs.

    After buying a front stand several months ago I finally put it together this evening. Took about five whole minutes.

    I hate having to remember torque values.

    Just another reminder of my dad (Navy man).

    Lookin’ good, lowcel!

    On the safety wiring, score some spring clips for using on areas where items are frequently opened/removed, like your caliper mounting bolts, axles and pinch bolts, and oil filler cap/dipstick… you can check out my build thread starting around the middle of page one, post 28742, for some ideas on safety wire convention, and see the spring clips I’m speaking of employed, starting nearer to the bottom of page one, at post 29088.

    Good luck with your build!

    Thank you. My paint is nothing fancy at all, just Rustoleum spray paint I bought from Lowe’s. There is plenty of orange peel in the paint and plenty of rough spots. With that said, it’s a track bike. It doesn’t need to be perfect.

    This bike is my baby. I do like to keep it nice and pretty. :D

    @admin – I just noticed that. Paid my $2.00 to photobucket to give me unlimited for a month. Should be good now.

    @lowcel I can’t believe they charge to host pictures in 2014. Nice rides!

    They have pretty high limits, I’ve just been posting quite a few shots lately on a few different forums.

    I am amazed at what you’ve done with this thing. You did a good job on the color scheme and the decals are fun. I still love the Viagra – haha
