FrankenBike Build Project

The idea for a FrankenBike build started in this thread, this post, with OfirMX being nominated and accepting to do the build.

The challenge is to build an SV650 completely from spare parts donated by SVR members. We all know SVR folks are the most generous and helpful people on the planet, and with Ofir at the helm, I believe we can pull it off.

This will be like the Pay It Forward thread. Of course Ofir will be a focused recipient here but will be paying shipping, so in no way is this a freebie. Shipping is going to add up. In return, Ofir will share all the gory build details with photos and documentation as the parts arrive and build progresses.

If for any reason the project doesn't complete, all donated parts will go up for grabs in the SVR Pay It Forward thread.

Donators will gain by contributing to a fun project, bask in good karma, and have a chance to clear unused stuff from our over-stuffed garages.

Gen1 build vs gen2 will be determined by first suitable frame donation.

Here is a start:

Hey man, we're almost there!

If you have any SV parts you'd like to contribute, please post'em up and let the build begin!
The truth will set you free... but first it will pis you off! -anon

Re: FrankenBike Build Project

Thanks Tee, Mad and all the others who are pushing for this. It all started as a joke but I think we can actually make this happen with everyone's support

Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do but then it's too late to make that decision.

1st or 2nd gen? I have plenty of stuff laying around that I wouldn't bother trying to sell, but would still work fine.

Re: FrankenBike Build Project

If you go 1st gen I have the stock rear shock, stock turn signals and stock undertail that is cut up. I may have other parts, I will have to look around.

Re: FrankenBike Build Project

I have a 2nd gen rear shock and fork springs, (but then so does everybody else). also have stock mirrors and some brake pads with a fair amount of life left in them.
I don't want a pickle, I just want to ride my motorsickle.
