Abused & ill treated brutale finds new home

Firstly hello everyone, as you can see this is my first post so here goes.
About 3 weeks ago i bought my wife a 750 brutale,the seller assured me the bike was genuine and in good condition apart from a dent to the left header pipe which came from a misshap when loading into a van. We traveled 250 miles to view the bike, when we arrived i couldnt believe my eyes there wasnt a good bit in sight. The guy had only owned her since february but had used her in wet and salty conditions and never washed her the bike was bought from a uk dealer and i was told was in mint condition when he took delivery, i felt very sorry for her and could see potential although there was alot of work to be done and money to be spent, after haggleing the already low asking price the deal was done and i relieved him of his brutale and vowed to save her life

I rode her home the 250 miles and she never missed a beat, my currant ride is a k5 1000 and i have got to say i was very impressed i set about the work to make her great again closely over seen by my wife, we striped the compleate front and rear ends replacing fork seals, wheel bearings, pads, chain, rear disc, we have had to replace every bolt because of the salt damage, the radiator grill was red with corrosion the rear sprocket was pited, we removed the scot oiler fitted by the previous owner which had splatted oil just about everwhere we fitted new tyres, link pipe, carbon bits include clock housing, hugger, front fender, key surround and on order we have tail piece gold mesh, heel plates, lower chain guard and clock surround, we are still looking for some header pipes to finish her if there is anybody out there with any for sale let us know. More good news i have ordered a brand new f4 1000 in black but im going to wait until the 07 reg comes out in march, i know how could i wait that long but we have a horrible winter to get out of the way and i like a challenge. sorry i will post some pics of the brutale nearly back to her former glory tomorrow as my pic res is to high to upload sorry again and i would just like to say thanks to geoff at emoto for all his help.

they are steel and will fit the midpipe, as they are the exact same length as the stock system.

I've always been a bit dubious about bikes fitted with Scott-Oilers. I know many people hold them in high regard, but I wonder: if they're going to fit something that saves you what 5 minutes of maintenance every few hundred miles, then what other regular maintenance and general upkeep are they likely to avoid?
