Rebuilding the R1->Catalyst Composites Bodywork Installed

I took the time to install the new Catalyst Composites bodywork on my 03 R1 yesterday. I still need to put on the front fender which I may do that this weekend. The new bodywork and gas tank should be going to the paint shop at the end of this month.

Enjoy the pics.

I'm going with a marbalized silver with blue pigment ice pearl mixed in with the clearcoat.

I had this done in blue with my SV650 and it was bad ass, but the silver is even more bad ass.

Thanks!

Trip, the paint job won't be on it for the GAP rally... The bike goes to the paint booth at the end of the month.

Thanks man! It's really all coming together very nicely. I just can't wait to get it painted at the end of the month.

I just hope nothing happens to the new bodywork at the gap this week.

Damn, that looked nice. But look at the bright side, at least you hadn't spent the money on paint and from the looks of it, you hadn't put the new gas tank on the bike yet. Hopefully you can get a decent price out of the new tank on eBay.

I actually already had the paint. I just told my painter to hold onto the paint for my next bike. I never did buy a new tank for the R1. I was going to have my painter just pull out the dent, and fill in the dent.

This time the bike is beyond repair. I'm just going to sell the R1 to rickmancc and keep the money for a down payment on another bike.

Why not part it out yourself?

I am considering that too, because I just did a low and high $ amount of what I can make.

My thing is I just bought a house and I go to closing this coming Friday... I'm going to be so busy after I'm done healing.
