Hi all,

I am Andrew, and I am from Squamish BC, Canada. About half way between Vancouver, and the Ski resort of Whistler.

I stuck my nose in here a bit last year, and now I am back. But this time, I've already stepped over the threshold.

BEHOLD - The Donor! A CL score for $100! 1987 CBR600F

Freshly rolled out of the truck bed:
3735

3736

3737

Most of the stuff I don't need is already missing :cool:

1 Hour later:
3738

3739

I will start a build thread, where I will post my many, many questions. I expect this to be a long term project, I have a lot going on right now, so spare time and cash are not abundant, but I am happy to slowly plug away at it until it's ready.

Just wanted to say hi for now..

Cheers,
Andrew

There is air in the tires....Looks like a steal for a hundred bones!
Did you tell the guy what you were gonna do to it?

Welcome again.

Welcome again.

There was no air in them when it went into the truck! But considering there are no brakes right now, and I had to unload it myself, I filled them up and took it for a little ride down the ramp! Back one is slowly going down, but the rubber is bald anyway, so tires and valve stems are on the list.

Guy I bought it from was excited for me, wants me to keep him updated. This El Moto thing is likely contagious.
