R6 Down.......but not out!

Well not being one to lie down and cry, i have armed myself with credit card and phone book and so far here is the progress

As far as the rebuild is concerned

Tank - Got (£75 - right colour and graphics)
Paint job(seat unit top+1 side fairing) - In hand (£250)
Top fairing (silver) - £40 (LUCKY as hell)
lights - £75 (ditto)
gear changer - £20
brake fliud resevoir -£15
fairing bracket - £130 (ouch)

All i need now is front indicators and some of the bolts to fit on the screen and a RH mirror

as i put it together, photos will go up at
