Restoring the disaster

You guys, if you want to input with your experiences to my effort to restore a burned 2004 Capo, I am pretty thankful in advance...

Bike was at this condition



and now is in this...



The entire process is described here

http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/s...04-spare-parts

which started as a "looking for support" post and turned out to be a fully alive restoration reality show

P.S. Please don't mention budget, reasonable price, time and such other logistician and ethical terms,they are out of my AOI and I have to apologize and cheat on my wife for them

Nedless to say the bike was advertized as needed only a wiring loom for 3000 Euros...

Now, after throttle bodies, airbox, wires, pipes, radiator, coils etc... feeling pretty confindent to make it a "show room lady" and trying to defend from parts failure attack, I feel as a sick Iraq veteran

The point is -for my absolut satisfaction regardless costs- that the bike will be equipped with the sufficient enough stuff to show up what it deserves according to its progressive design and implement high standards.

That is comforting and will surely help out in the long run with future repairs.
