Just bought this from a friend. I'm going to fix it this winter(I hope).

New Project Dsc_0010

A drunk, unexperienced driver with no license went off-road with it.

Front end and rear wheel has taken most of the beating and all farings are damaged.
No damage at all at the frame.

Front wheel, notice the brakedisc.

New Project Dsc_0011

Rear wheel.

Hi Steen.
If the engine and frame has no damage, (it seems to me from 2001 maybe 2002 without top speed limited) it's a really good project to go ahead to change it to a custom muscle bike New Project 3498837457 .
Power, speed, engine, parts&accessories, you have it all in one package.
Good luck shake h

It's a 1999 so it got no restrictions hbb 

I've already bought another bike(without engine) from Germany, just waiting for it to arrive and then the fun can begin.

Dismantle, clean everything and put it back together.

Piece of cake affraid

Steen G.

(I think that you know it but just in case) be careful with the subframe from the 1999's Busa.
They broke easy near the attach screws with the master frame.
It must be replaced or reinforced in case you think of keep it. 
Just like this guy did:

Wednesday evening I went to Germany to pick up my spareparts. It's a 01 without engine and harness.

New Project Dsc_0014

As the old fork was twisted I had to support the bike while removing it. Very rough stand but it worked New Project 3993731222
