Naked Daytona

Hi Folks,
I have a 1050 St, but I am looking at a naked bike again. I have spotted this:
It says that it's a 2001 Daytona but has obviously been played with as it has no fairing, different lights, different forks and front brakes etc.

So, what do you think. Mileage is 36000, loads of service history according to advert.

Might look at it tomorrow. They want £3495 which is expensive but a lot of work has gone into it, not least the paint job.

I think it look nice. More pictures would be welcomed!
Worth going see it in real a'd maybe try it I think.

If the paint job is perfect and the maintenance is good... I'll go for it!
Maybe you can do a little bargain?

You're lucky here in Paris they are planning on forbidding the motorcycles from before 2006 because of '' pollution ''... (********...)

In the US that would be a 2002 955i Daytona with the double sided swingarm. Hard to tell from the side view, but those lights might be the stock Daytona lamps just not covered by the front center fairing. Maybe Yamaha R1 front end and brakes.

I think the lamps look like the 10+ teardop Speed Triple lamps

Definitely Yamaha calipers - not sure about the forks, look like maybe 04-05 GSXR 1000 forks

At first the tank/tail look different - but the paint job is bit of optical illusion, those are the stock parts - paint looks nice in the pics at least, hopefully as good up close & 'live'

That's as nice a 955i Speedtona (Speed Tripled Daytona) as I've seen. Lots of people converted them as they tired of the sports bike crouch. It's also entirely possible the conversion was needed as a result of a fall that wrecked all the fairing plastics and the front end however I'd say whoever did it knew what they were doing and they've ended up with a really neat looking bike. They even removed the exhaust lug from the passenger footrest hanger and cleaned it up - nice attention to detail. If it rides nice I'd go for it.

The rear plastics and seat cvowl are 2004 - 2006 Daytona. That belly pan looks a bit SV 1000S to me.

Seems a it's bit of a "licorice allsorts" but nicely done as stated.

It does look nice in that photo, I'm not game to say it's better than Ken's master piece effort though!!!

Ken was correct about the lamps from a Speed Triple. A lot of work and money went into the build.

Forgive me. Would the following edit be acceptable?

Notwithstanding the glorious example built by the laird, that's as nice a 955i Speedtona as I've seen.
