I got to see my recovered bike today.
It's pretty thrashed
* repainted black and red
* parts are missing or half-attached (windshield, mirrors)
* gas tank is dented, muffler dented
* shifter is broken off
* ignition has a 1 inch hole bored through it (to break the steering lock).
* clutch is hard to engage
I haven't started the bike yet - so I don't know if the engine is still good.
Here are the pics showing some before and after pics. I think now that the bike was stolen to joyride - which surprises me - I figured that the parts would have been sold on ebay. I don't know if the cops figured out who took it.
I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet. I'm not sure I want to ride the 'gettoization' - because I didn't do it. Also I'm not sure if I should take it to my dealer or see if someone else can fix it. If you have any recommendations let me know. I suspect that replacing some of the parts like the ignition HAS to go through the dealer.
