Default Seven.sixtwo's '06 SeVen.1000S project thread

Here she is, the newest addition to my stable, a 2006 SV1000S with some minor rashing and damage, mostly stock so far but lots of things in the idea pipeline. I don't have a very good camera so my cellphone will have to do for now.

The only thing that's been done to it so far is a ghetto undertail and plate mount, pulled the fairings off, and I'm in the process of making appropriate headlight and gauge mounts so I can get it back on the road.



The idea here: single 4" round headlight (although I'm getting an '04 gixxer light in the mail soon, may use that instead), LOW drag bars (I like dirty bars but they are too high for the look I'm going for, shorty cans, maybe some radiator covers later on. Not sure where to mount stock gauges, everywhere I've tried they look a little goofy.



PS- some little bitch in my condo association ratted me out so now am I not only allowed to have my bike behind my house like you see in the pic, I'm not even allowed to have a freestanding deck anymore! Means I gotta work in the dark garage with no power outlets. bleh.

For the front end I want to do a small windscreen- something along these lines:



As for the gauges, I have seen an SV650 with the gauges frenched into the tank. This would be awesome, but far beyond my abilities, resources, and time as a wanna-be fabricator, and also means I would really have to crane my neck down to check speed.



I may go with another set of dials if the money is right, but the stockers are decent and I'd like to find a good way of mounting them.

I've also got a spare top triple with DL1000 (V-strom) 7/8" risers. My fear is that the bars will be too high and make the front end look wonky. I really want a low, sleek look to the front of the bike, optimally with the bars being no higher than the top of the tank.

Unfortunately, this is all a pipe dream at the moment. The equation for doing work is totally unbalanced at the moment:

time + money + work space + access to good equipment + inspiration = DO WORK

I have the inspiration and motivation to do work, but none of the rest!

Dig that front fairing thing for the headlight, that will e cool. Tail work will thin it up in the back there. How's she run? I'm interested in a liter twin here someday.
