    Project San Carlo.

    Bought a Rep write off CBR600RR yesterday and the plan is to turn it into a San Carlo Honda Gresini Simoncelli Replica. The plan is about 50/50 road, track but my priority is getting it track ready first. picked it up for a grand less than the asking price, so first thing ill be checking is the frame, and anything major. hopefully i can get it trackready for under 5k in total.

    Ill put up a step by step guide of what im doing with the bike.

    heres some pics.











    so the front end suffered a big hit, and the left fork is snapped, the lower triple clamp is twisted and the right fork is slightly bent but im still going to replace the entire front end. Bit of a quick fix

    first stumbling block ive come across is getting a key replaced, or a way around the hiss system. if i can remove it all together from the bike id be happy. if anyone knows of a way around it, id be glad to hear it.

    the bikes being delivered asap, so ill hopefully put up some better shots soon.

    my prior experience with project bikes usually ends up with just bling, so ill be trying to draw from the more mechanically experienced guys on here when possible. whoever helps me can have a session at the island

    Cheers
    Chris

    First Update;

    Keys Sorted. Got hold of a bloke who did them for a few hundred bucks and to match the tank and seat locks, which was obviously going to be very costly if it didnt.
    Picked up a set of wheels from ebay, with rotors and less than a thousand k's on em.
    also picked up a front end from the us for a couple of hundred as well.

    hopefully start pulling this apart and putting it together tomorrow!

    RE: Project San Carlo.

    is there still such a thing as a repairable write off in VIC? sadly in NSW every write off is now a stat write off meaning it can never be registered again.

    what year model is it? should be an awesome base for a project but I can't help but feel $3500 for a written off 600RR with practically no front end (and no key) seems a tad pricey.

    still, I'm sure it'll be cool. be interesting to see what you think of it compared to your old ZX6R.

    RE: Project San Carlo.

    How long till you receive this beast Mr Chrissybenn?

    Interested to see if the frame is ok as it looks like one of the forks is completely snapped.

    All the best with it though, should be a lot of fun.

    RE: Project San Carlo.

    US ebay...got a mate a set of triples and forks for ~$400 shipped a few months back (that included front wheel, clipon's, brakes, etc too).
    I had been contemplating a San Carlo build for my 06 with some race glass, but I think I will just keep it simpler now and watch this one instead
