History
Bought in Germany Aug. 2010, according to seller 49000 km. According to VIN (SMTTC338DDP******) its actually build in 1993.
Imported to Denmark, Run for three days to check out if it has any major areas to attack for rebuild/repair/change. Have a strange scruffing, grinding noise when putting the gas on from under 2800-3000 revs in any gear. Everything over 3000 sounds sweet and smooth. Have tried to investigate throughout this site and Google and found a couple of possible causes, alternator bolt and loose front sprocket. None of those showing any faults....may see if anything else turns up during stripping the bike. Temp gauge faulty,cooler fan switch faulty, air filter may never have been changed, according to the look of it. Variuous rubber parts need renewal, but generally a sound vehicle which has not been tampered a lot. Guess the 49000 kms could be true.
Stripping it this winter for generel cleaning and preventive maintenance, think it will be painted red for next season.

Change of wheels and brakes from a -96 Throphy.
Like the look of the three spokes and getting a 17" rear wheel for a larger choice of tire.
Front brakes with 4 pots and 310 mm discs.

Hope to find some Speed triple/Daytona type mufflers.

Had a small Puig screen, lookin for something a bit larger, preferably surrounding the headlamp.
