Just picked up a 91 plate 600 f2 that needs some love. seems to be a good engine but not rideable at the moment. the bike was partially stripped when I bought it.
It will be my first bike for over 30 years, and I plan on restoring it and getting to know the bike. Expect lots of daft questions from me.

The plan is a general tidy up, full paint of the fairings a good service then enjoy the summer.
I will post pics on here, just to record its progress.

first job is tidy up the frame, I have ordered the paint. I plan on just touching up the bad bits as I don't want to completely strip the bike, the plan is to do a rolling restoration so I can still use it.
I have also removed the rear pegs and ordered a new exhaust hanger, quite a bit of metal removed those brackets seem excessively big.

Exhaust will need replacing, could do with some ideas about the replacement such as cost and suppliers. Unless a member has a spare used one.

will post some pics when I get home as working away for a week.

Congrats on the pick up, looking forward to seeing your progress. I am working on my F2 project as well.

Today didn't go so well, up early and a whole day to work on the bike.

having removed the tank and what was left of the plastics I noticed the frame was twisted at the rear. Then the v5 arrived and it has been a write off something the nice seller failed to disclose.

Having contacted nice seller he has become not so nice very quickly, so I think my only option is a complete rebuild with a new 2nd hand frame.

The build just got a lot longer..........

That bites. But on the bright side, when you're finished, you will have a bike that you know every square inch of.

How do I get these to show as images instead of links?

Managed to get a 2nd hand frame for 42 delivered so the rebuild is on.

I'm off work mon/tues so hope to get stuck into sorting the new frame. Ive ordered the swinging arm bearing kit and want to get stuck in. Think I will keep a running total of the costs just to see what it ends up at. Current total inc bike 665 ( best not let the wife see this )

The plan is now a total restoration, my OCD could be tested
