Saved a F4 today

I have been up since 5:30am on Monday. After working all day and helping a friend move their washer and dryer up a narrow flight of stairs. I left at 11 last night and drove for 10 hrs to ILL to get a F4 that was in an a farm auction with lots of large equipment. Loaded by 9am central time then drove the 10 hrs back to SC. She is dirty and needs some TLC. Still working of how much I can replace back to stock. On the down side the boss says I can't have another bike so one will have to go.

Little pic of her

186. She has had some mods done to her. 5 spoke BST rims. Braketech CNC rotors, Brembo monoblocks, Brembo levers, and different clipons. Removed the license plate bracket and made their own then wired the turn signals in the tail section.

Only 592 miles, but she has some rough areas on her.

To keep the tambo I would need to sell more than just the 1098. I was told not to spend money on a bike but I could not let this one go. She needs to be restored. Her battery is dead and needs a new one. Might pull the battery out of Mona and start her up tomorrow.

Wow. 592 miles with rough areas. Somebody just didn't appreciate what they had. I can't help but think that this bike is kind of like a rescue dog that is just beginning to realize it has been rescued by a true dog lover.
