    Gotta love getting a bike 'naked' :evil

    I *so* wish I'd snapped picture last winter to reply to this thread.

    I tore a Superhawk 996 track bike down to the bare frame in a 10'x10' prefab shed while my garage was being renovated. It was 20 degrees outside and I was heating the shed with a kerosene heater placed strategically away from the plastic body parts (I kept the fuel tank out in the snow thank you very much :rofl ) There were parts EVERYWHERE in there. I had a little path cleared to walk around the frame on the stand and that was it.

    On the upside, I got it back together. The garage is now finished. And I rode the Superhawk crosscountry this summer without a hitch :deal

    What project spurred this KTM rape?

    as to why... i got a good deal on the bike and it had been pretty beat up, so i took the little bit of extra $$$ and am getting new plastics (orange, even though everyone says they like the red better), trail tech, and some other odds and ends. and, as you can tell, some deep cleaning is direly needed.

    good deal on the bike yields: new plastics, new dualsport wiring, grease everything that moves, and set her loose on the terrain come spring! :clap

    As you can see from all the wires danglin down, i've got to make something to hold them. It looks like i'll have plenty of room behind the headlight and underneath the trail tech. The carboard template is in the very early stages of design. I'm going to have all the dummy lights in the new dash to the right of the trail tech, and there will be a fair bit of dash shaved off to make access to the key easier. kinda hard to relocate that as its also the steering lock. I was very impressed with the cyclops- i think itll look great. hopefully the front fender i got will be a fairly simple bolt on item. time to call ktmhutt again i guess.... havent got that shippment yet!
