Default Hack to thrash

So, my long term 'hack' bike is getting a new lease of life, although it probably isn't going to be too happy about it...

After I sold my CCM Supermoto when I was made redundant when Streetfighters magazine folded, I needed a cheap ride, so bought a damaged repairable SV650 for 600 quid. It got used and abused for the following four years, with just oil changes, tyres and a set of Fatbars fitted in place of the standard clip-ons, the fairing trimmed and some heated grips fitted.

But last Autumn I decided that it was high time that I did something interesting, so the SV is getting some treatment, and being prepped as a track bike, for track days, Minitwins racing and hopefully some tarmac hillclimbs too.
So far, the bodywork is off, the standard can is off, some race rearsets have been fitted and a Honda Hornet race nosecone lined up for the pointy end.
Pics soon.

If it's any help, the SV is hiding at the back of this pic...

It has indeed Yan - all over the UK, to the TT three times (I think), and only problem it's given me has been turning into a 325cc vee single on the way back from the Bulldog Bash in pissing rain one year.

It's far better now Robbo, with the walls all painted, electrics in, carpet on the floor, racking up, stereo plumbed in, even a telly to play TT DVDs... Only need to finish the wood burner to make it a bit more cosy, and get a steel top for the work table...

So I got hold of a cheapo silicon hose kit, and this is the bar fairing that was intended for a bike in the Honda Hornet race series.

And I blagged the bottom half of a faring to cut down into a bellypan - race bikes in ACU road race series need to have a 'sump' that can catch any leaking fluids, so I have to fit one...

And I've got some cheap race rearsets as well, which may get a little bit of attention to lighten them. It'sa race gearshift too, and I'm not sure how I feel about that...
