Previous owner dropped it, left bar dented the frame. Raced RSV4 this year until broke collar bone and thought it would be a good way to pass the time with a broken wing! Will hopefully race this bike next season...

Thought a few people may be interested in this rebuild, it is the first European I have rebuilt and need as much help as I can get. Purchased the bike damaged, build 172/300, the previous owner had it in his collection until he dropped it. I checked out the bike, it was dropped at very low speed onto the left; most damage was fairing, front assembly, cracked sump due to foot stand breaking off. All damage superficial except for the frame, it had a small dent from the left bar hitting it. Checking the frame closer I guessed it was not bent or twisted just dented. Thankfully I was right. Intention was to strip, fix frame, reassemble for racing. I anticipated 3 months and certain $$ but like any project both of these were dreams! As I started to reassemble it became more and more apparent that $ was needed to get the bike fast and handling right. Someone told me of easily high siding with the original suspension, so naturally I had to spend money in that area. So far the build consists of
Fixed frame
GPR Front damper
Marzocchi RAC AM SBK Forks
PP Tune bars
Domino throttle
Nitron rear shock
Microtech ECU
Catalyst fairings
Cordona quickshift
MWR race air filter
Mitch rear hub
STM slipper clutch
520 chain conversion
Lightech rearsets
Arrow decat pipe
HEL lines
Racing water pump
Some snap shots below so far

After running some dimensional checks luckily the frame had only a localised dent, it was not bent or twisted. 25CrMo4-steel tubular trellis we TIG welded. At first we welded on a slide hammer (home made) and heated the area to see if we could pull it out. Heating it with Butane was not enough, we had to get Oxy/acet to get the localised heat into it. Once we pulled the dent, it was a matter of cutting off the rod and grinding/sanding to a smooth finish. Sprayed it with anti-rust and thats it.
You can see a commercial example of a slide hammer here http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclo...de_hammer.html

Dis-assembley doesn't take near as many beers as assembly
