I'm a big fan of the RC-51. In fact right now it is a difficult decision whether or not to keep the 9er in favor of a 05' RC-51. I appreciate the time and $$$ that goes into custom work however the look is just wrong for a sport bike.

You need a Superhawk.

He's nuts for asking 12.5

I'll give him 4k because I'd have to fix the suspension to track it.

Some vinyl number plates would look kewl over that paint job

It's the only way a sport biker can hang at the Harley bars in this neck of the woods. This guy might have taken it a little to far.

It's a little much for me, but with that suspension I'd take just about anything. Oh yeah, that think is nice.

I'd ride that one Danke posted in a 1/2 second. Ohlins, front-mount radiator, upgraded rotors, wheels, brakes. The paint is the only thing holding it back.

That even looks like a CF swingarm.

Read Paolino's thread on Zilla, I'd guess he's got a few sets of bodywork for it so the TT wouldn't be a daily driver.
