No decals.
Missing Dzus
CRC stickers on regular plastic air ducts (did any MVs come like that? I thought they all had flags there...)
tach is yellow. The 2005 has a white tach
Right bar-end is silver. Left is black (!!!!)
Starter button is... weird. Maybe Euro model?

I'm sure there's more. What a mess.

Quite a handful of 750 parts. That tail pipe damage reminds me a bit like Altoon's pipes when his bike did a front flip :(

The bar ends are what stand out to me the most! Damn!

This bike is definitely a lego bike.
Us chinese call lego car/bike as a car/bike that has all sorts of different parts.
Wish the bike was in better condition and I'd buy it for racing.

One more thing, I thought F4 1000 have silver rims. From my understanding.

I really hope the poor bastard that buys that doesn't post here "Hi guys! I just got a great deal on a 2005!"

I would feel awful giving him the bad news.

The starter switch is from an 04 or earlier.

I bought one of the parts bikes I had from these guys. The asking price was $6000, not a penny less. I bought it for $3500. Most of the parts that were supposed to be on that bike are on this one. (Tach, wheels, starter switch, and probably some others.

Also, the absense of any decals leads me to believe it has been painted. Probably not well either based on what I have seen from them.

Foot pegs are from a 750 - non adjustable.

Now how do you know its a 1000cc without dynoing the bike?
Fuel lines should be of a thicker type (1000cc) plus quick release fittings on both sides of the fuel hoses.

EBC valve needs to be inplace and working. Underneath of the airbox is different between a 750 and 1000.

The 1000cc head is slightly taller than the 750cc.

I notice that it has the cat converter as the midpipe?

I'm almost tempted to drive up there and take some high res photos on how NOT to restore a bike.

I didn't pick up any of that, Minime. Good eye.

Hey Matty did you see that spr shock with a blue spring for sale?

I didn't think the '05s had:

Yellow tach
Black wheels
Black tipped exhausts

The starter button in question looks just like mine does- an '00 750.

The mismatched bar ends- looks like a Throttlemeister installed, though they didn't install the left side match.

all of that and no tank protector....must have been removed when it was resprayed and they forgot (or couldn't be bothered to stick a new one on)....unless it's of the invisible variety....makes you want to cry.

Has anyone reported this guy?
I'm not registered on ebay or I would. Or can you even do that?
That thing is messed up.
