750 SPR Purchasing Advice

Opinions on this if you would http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv...931257429.html

My experience first hand with mvs is limited to the 3 cylinder bikes but I've always wanted an f4. I've been hunting around trying to find something older and sportier to use on the track. Pretty much everything Japanese was in the 4-5k range. This popped up today and it seemed like it could be a fun seldom weekend/track bike. Obviously its been down and is in need of new plastics. Its worth noting that I saw this bike in person today while at the dealer so it does exist despite the weird add.

That's about as far as my knowledge goes of the bike and f4s in general. I'd appreciate it if anyone could share thoughts towards the bike, the price, what makes an spr different from a normal f4 etc.

Thanks

Any suggestions on fixing the damage or anything unique to look out forthat would be immediate red flags?

Neal, there's very few SPR's in the USA, CAG on the forum has a mint one and Ed has one for track use only.
The damage looks pretty easy to fix, the decals you can buy and the paint is a matt black. SPR runs a great package in their gearbox with special parts all over the motor and I think RG3 pipes, the headers and mid pipe is unique to the SPR also.
However the rest of the bike is pretty standard and easy to get hold of parts.

If that bike starts and runs and isn't smoky, buy it. While matching that paint is a bit of a beast, a talented body shop can set it straight. Were I anywhere near there, that bike would be in my possesion by now.

To be honest... Me too!!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Awesome. Thanks guys. My biggest concern with fixing the damage was was getting ahold of the decals but apparent that's not as hard as I thought. As far as matching the paint, would it be sacrilege to just reshoot the entire bike in the matte black so everything properly matches?

I'll be back down there in a week or so to get my bike from the shop so I'll look at it again. Hopefully Its still there and I didn't shoot myself in the foot by posting it here.

You should have stopped by yesterday while they were doing demo rides. They had a rivale, tuono, griso, monster 1200s and a speed3 for anyone to ride. They also have a sweet tamburini and an f3 oro there too! Gonna be pissed if you end up buying it today. If not, let me know what you think of it. I just passed by it yesterday so I didn't hear them start it. Always good to have a second set of eyes on it.
