Restoring #25 Senna back to her former glory

I have another project to start working on. I just picked up a 2007 F4 Senna #25. This bike was owned by George several years ago. I think around 2012 he sold it to this kid. Needless to say that this kid did not take great care of her. I will post some pics tomorrow. I spent 12 hrs on the road coming back from a job in Florida. Now i have a 40th birthday party for a friend to attend so the Senna will have to wait until tomorrow. Some pics might be scary to us MV fans.

PS unlike the Tambo which I was not able to keep. This one is staying with me.

R1 - subscribed with interest. The scenario you outline is, unfortunately, not an uncommon one these days. With prices tanking like never before, the upshot is that the "yahoos" will eventually start buying them as throwaways so that they can say in the meantime that they have an MV. Even if it doesn't start out that way, the end is always the same.

We lust after our bikes for what they are so, if we have to spend money on them, it oftentimes doesn't matter if what we have into a bike is more than what it is worth. This, however, is not the common case these days and, as prices continue their freefall, nice and perhaps "semi rare" bikes will continue to get trashed. I see this all the time.

Lets just say that my wife use to like Art. I even think she is trying to find a way to block him on my phone.

Here she is. He taped the mirrors when he transported her from storage to his house earlier in the week. Currently she is not running. Does turn over, I am thinking it is the fuel lines in the tank. Last two pics is the items that came with her. New panels and parts. I have found a few scratches on them since they have been in storage for years. Not in the boxes. Most likely in the way and having to be moved around at times. My plan is to place her back to mostly stock. I do not see at this time a need to replace the water lines or remove the muzzy fan blades. Not sure if I can have the tank fixed or just leave it and keep on the lookout for a replacement.

It does look in bad shape but nothing you can't fix. At least Melisa will know where you are for the next few months

Hahaha Believe me Melissa is not the only wife thinks he’s a bad influence when it comes to motorcycle purchasing. He still has one in my garage. I’m pretty sure some sort of statute of limitations is about to run out and I’m going to own it soon.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.
