Here is the beginning of my build.

I got this wrecked bike for a song and dance. So I thought to myself lets see what we can do!

Here is how I got it. Rims shattered, not a single piece of plastic left and won't even turn over.


This thing is going to be a hodge podge of parts I have laying around, hence the name gR1tty.

I forgot to mention that the motor in the pic is from a wrecked race bike. 1052 cc cp pistons, carillo rods, hot cams and was dyno tuned. Not sure on the rwhp as it was in storage for a few years before I got it.

So I cleaned out the carbs and flushed the coolant and oil. Surprising no rust, this is why I love the desert!

Hopefully I can get a startup video for you guys!

Well I made so pretty good headway. Motor is running. Got some wheels from an 03 R1 installed, derusted and painted a banged up tank, got all the brakes working and started fabing up a battery/electronics under seat tray. I cut off all the bent subframe and I will use a R6 tailight.

Oh I also installed some bar end mirrors and use the old bar end caps as spools for the rear swing arm. Waste not want not!

Also I just threw on a extra seat I have, but I ordered a longer one. I am debating on putting a cowling on it or just leaving it. Once I get the actual seat we will see.

Agreed the r1 deserves better but if you like it that's what's counts. Just my .02 either way if you're happy rock it homie
