You didn't mention how it runs? I assume it is in good shape mechanically so it looks as though you are off to a good start. Remember to have fun with a project like this. Time to add your own personal touches especially since it isn't new. I cut off the ugly rear fender and made a license plate bracket for mine. Cleaned up the back end nice. Painted the rear foot pegs black and the rider heal guards black and dropped in a Daytona motor all black. Nice contrast black with the orange, removed the RS graphics. I may have the wheels done black this next Spring. Parts are easy to come by off of ebay. Lots of interchangeable from other models. Good luck and keep the pictures coming as you update it's progress.
