This is the bent up mirror bracket. Apparently, The bike low sided and cought the tires and then high sided, sending the bike in a tumble.

I love seeing bikes brought back to life! I have seen a few f4is for sale that were stunterized or a **** poor attempt at a street fighter.. Been tempted but the wife would kill me if I brought home another bike, let alone a stray..

Best of luck with it!

Yeah man me too It makes me feel like im doing something good. I ABSOLUTELY HATE seeing people attempt to make street fighters. Its just basically saying, I didn't care enough about this bike and I could care less what could happen to it.

Well, This baby here turned out to be even more of a stray than I thought it would be, but hopefully in the next few months she'll undergo a complete transformation. Ill keep yall updated on the progress! I actually bought a new battery today and got some keys from the locksmith yesterday. I cant wait to start putting stuff on that you can actually see!

This is my goal

Ouch, she's in rough shape. Will be fun to see the progress, though.

That front tire is in HORRIBLE shape. No wonder the bike crashed. The front wheel looks bent, also (last photo, up top near the radiator).

Make sure to check the forks - that's going to be the biggest thing that might be tweaked and need replacing. Otherwise if the motor is in good shape, the rest is pretty easy to replace.

Im excited to see it look good again too! Yeah I know, its amazing how the driver let the tire get so bad. and yeah theres a dent in each rim actually, which, im thinking ill be able to bend out at my shop because I realllyyyy dont want to have to get new ones unless i get a jam up deal.

We also made sure the frame, forks, sub frame, engine, and tranny were all in good shape before I bought it. If any of that had been messed up it would have stayed in its grave, sadly

it would have only been $100 but i wanted to logo airbrushed instead of stickers and he painted to the heel protectors candy red. So it brought the price up to $150.

Yeah man there isnt a scratch, but im still baffled at the DA who spray painted the seat. Is there a way to get it off? Also, ive never owned a Honda before so im still trying to figure out the seat, is the easiest way to get it off just by unscrewing the bolts?? I sound like an idiot asking this question but im curious.
