Streetfighter R1?

so i'm thinking of somehow making my r1 into a temporary, street legal streetfighter. i don't have the money right now for a new headlight/bracket/fairings, so she's definately going to be naked for a while. my main problems at the moment are 1) how do i mount the computer? 2) what are my options with headlights? 3) what am i going to do about front turn signals? and 4) how am i going to conceal the wiring?

i think i'm just going to write off my twisted fairing bracket in the front, so that can be hacked away on. i'm trying to think of how to incorporate a round headlight into the front. i suppose there must be someway to fabricate a bracket that can mount to the existing fairing bracket. i will keep that bracket to mount the computer on i think, even though it's twisted, cutting off the rear-mirror mount "ears". i'm just kinda at a loss right now for ideas.... anybody done this sort of mod before?

didn't have it, would have used it :bonk:
jeeps, yeah, i mean the guage cluster....and i did repair the rear cowl fine, but the front end turned out to be a different story.....the chunk of plastic i thought was at the crash site ended up not being there, so it's not exactly fixable i don't think....too large of a gap to fill. i don't know, i'm just looking at some different temporary options till i can save up the money to get some new (used) pieces up front. thanks... :cheers:
This is the problem though....

Is there a way I can still get this to work? I don't know how to fill that gap on the left side properly. That's why I'm trying to find some way of doing this without the front fairing till I can get a new one.

yeah, i'm looking on ebay and am going to give a repair a crack in the mean time. i just brought the bent fairing bracket into a metal shop today and they're going to try to straighten it out. if they can to that, i'll try setting the broken fairing on it and seeing how it sits. i might be able to build it back together with fiberglass mat and cut/sand it to shape, then just run with one headlight. i dunno, gotta keep my eyes open on ebay. i just saw a pair of R1 headlights go for $79.00 over the weekend. can't believe i missed that. :yikes: oh well, gotta keep searching :readng: :cheers:
