not too bad. I just hope that part behind the slider in that pic is a plastic part and not the frame.

Forks: around 325.00
Rim: 20.00(off a 01)

Currently have no front brakes because rotors didn't work. but atleast she moves!

Im going to buy a 07 rim soon as i get 380.00 :\ probally tomorrow lol

primer i had from doing my old truck.. and sand paper.. i have a soldering gun witch is how i fixed the fairings..

I still need:
A new frame sliders.
A new rim.
a rear right blinker(i lost some where in my house )
a front right blinker..



The story; was going up the mountain around a s curve. right hand turn posted speed limit is 30mph.. i was doing a little over 60mph.. just leaned way to far over.. and it just slid out nailed a cement wall.. after sliding 60ft.. and draging me with it for about 20-30 then i start rolling..

jacket is a little scuffed, my pants are ripped apart., gloves were scredded..

I had a little road rash on my lower fat rolls on my back.
and a little on my knee.


all and all.. was fun as hell!

What are you using to fill and finish the "welds"?
Most plastic stuff, I'll just use zip-ties for a filler material, but I'm not sure if it would work with fairing plastics. And what, bondo to make it pretty?
