01 ZX6R Rebuild Before and After

These are some before and after pics of the bike I just recently sold. I owned it for about 2 years in which time I did a TON of work on it. I purchased it in about a million pieces (as you can kind of tell from the first picture) and spent about a year just putting it back together. So what you see is the day I bought it, the day I first rode it, and the day I sold it.

Thanks! I put so much time and energy into it that I got pretty emotional when I watched her leave with someone else a couple weeks ago. I think doing that much work got me a little more attached than I realized before actually watching her leave...

I live in the Grand Rapids area...Lowell. Where are you from?

You know, that's a good question. I wondered the same thing at the time because it has a little bit of a lip at the back end of it. If it weren't for that lip, I would have said no, but it doesn't quite look right/stock. If it was, it was incredibly well done - shape was really smooth (smoother after I got done with it, of course ).

Anyway, I think it was and it didn't concern me much at the time because I knew the bike had been abused heavily previously - definitely stunted and not carefully. I bought the bike purely to learn to ride a sport bike and to make some mad profit turning it around - which I did
