I am looking to have the following work done for cheap to free. I know that's kind of rude to ask, but I'm almost dead broke, but still wanting to get this turned into a racebike. I am 90% there and just need a friend in the industry or someone with friends that could help. I will try to compensate as best I can. I'm not trying to scam anyone here and not just a cheapass. I have a lot of expenses that came up recently, but want to maintain my hobby.

I'm not trying to play the sympathy card here, but wanted to give you a reason of why I'm not just another poor adult wanting a free handout. I am a disabled Army Infantry veteran that served 5 years as an 11B with 2 tours to Iraq. I have had quite a few medical expenses that even the VA can't fully pay for. It's very hard for me to get a job with regular appointments and an active disability status. I do have my limbs, but have nerve damage so employers pretty much despise me.

I am a good mechanic, but my lack of tools really limits me. I am offering this bike for use, to anyone that would like to race it. The bike is completely legal and registered in my name to the DMV has plates etc... It will only be a racebike though. I'll do all the work on it, take it to the races, and still "own" the bike, but other than that someone can race it or even track day it, as long as they aren't malicious.

I have race fairings of unknown brand. They are relatively well-made, but no SharkSkinz. I'd like to have custom fairings made if at all possible.
