Default 919 Hornet

We all know I don't need another project, but my buddy woke me up with a text today...




So. I guess I have another project

I mean c'mon, how could you turn that down?

I don't remember what year it is or if it has a title or not.
If I recall correctly, the story goes something like this: He used to ride it regularly, then it got stolen and he ended up getting it back sans ignition and some other odds and ends. Between theft and recovery he picked up another ride, and when he got the 919 back he put it on the workbench to do... something... with it that never ended up happening. He has almost all the parts to make it go, but hasn't done anything with it in X years and is tired of staring at it.

If there's no title I'll turn it into a track bike or something. If there is it'll go the route of stubby exhaust, Monster-ish tail, drag bars, forks/trips, etc. But not until the Busa is done... and the B12 is finished... and the 929 is up and going... and the R1 is at least mostly there.

I'll get pics up when I get it in hand.



I just need to make sure I'm not present when the wife discovers it in the garage.

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.

Never played with one Yan. Come to think of it, I don't know if I've ever actually seen one in the wild.


Bike and a bin o' bits.




Bit more of a uh... blank canvas... than I remembered, but that's fine.
Forgot to ask about the title.

Looks in good shape as far as corrosion goes. Get it running and go from there? Best drop your buddy a text about the title first before putting any money in it though. No title and it's a breaker.

Eh... as much as I'd like to just for the sake of having something to hoon around on, the time is probably better spent on the others.
Both the B12 and the Busa are so close to completion, it makes more sense to put the DW into them first. Especially the Bandit.



I'm in Colorado, Morti... corrosion isn't a thing here
Texted buddy, he has the title and will dig it up when he gets around to it. Not really in a huge rush there.
I wouldn't consider it a dealbreaker if it didn't have a title though... $200 and some patience with the DMV would get me a new one, which I would consider perfectly reasonable to put into a bike that was virtually free. Moot point though.



Now... need to look into what forks will be easy to swap in.

^^^So that's not quite going according to plan.
Have bids out on a CB1000R SSSA, comparing bearing sizes with some GSXR front ends, looking at wheel widths, etc.
Debating whether to rat-rod it or not. The frame lends itself rather well to the dual-oxygen-tanks-as-fuel-tank idea I've had in the back of my head for a bit, but then again I'm not sure I'm in the mood for that kind of style on this one. The engine seems too clean for such a thing. On the other hand, the Busa no longer falls into that category and I oughta do something to fill that void.

I just looked on the map... I don't think you could be any further from the ocean than you are?!

Lucky you in that sense. I live a ten minute walk from the beach. I like the sea air, the dog loves chasing sticks on the beach... my bikes and car all hate the sea air.

I once took on an XJ600S in boxes... it was free. I spent lots of time and a little money getting it back together only to find it a) wouldn't run and b) the title as lost. I stood back and looked at it, still a shabby XJ600S that I had no use for, and ended up giving it away again as I just CBA. Since then I swore never to take on another bike I couldn't hear running and hold the title, not even for free. I guess guys like me mean guys like you get a free bike now and then.
