Busa's Back.... Where she belongs
« on: July 04, 2017, 02:48:09 PM »
Built in 2007, sold in 2010 as money tightened.

Found Apr 4, 2017 on Craigslist.... a little worse for wear & neglect. :(

Time to make her whole again.... *Seems fellow who bought her took one maiden ride & was so terrified, the bike got pushed in a corner for a couple years until owner #2 bought her. Was able to buy her back for about 1/2 what I sold her for.. In 7 years they only put a couple 1000 miles on :) BUT.... my gawd the neglect !! Turns out mechanicals were still in pretty good shape. Replaced oil immediate with Mobile1. Pulled Avon Storms off I installed in 2007  & mounted set of Bridgestone S21s. Fresh candy red paint, new graphics brushed stainless with gold accents....... all coming back together. Hard to believe a guy could get so excited (I'm 63 :). Have my trusty FJR1300, but can't wait to get my Busa back on the road. :)
