Bennett636's new bike/ build thread

Ladies and gentlemen I am pleased to announce that Bennett636 aka "me" is back on two wheels. I've been a member here for quite a while now and most of you know me and remember my blue baby that was taken out by a tree that had fell across the road. You can see that here: Bad crash last night. But I'm alive - ZX6R Forum

Today I picked up a 2005 magma red zx6r with only 9200 miles on it! This thing is mint with only a couple blemishes that come with the age of the bike. The guy I bought it from was the original owner and everything on the bike is stock, except for the red windscreen. It will need new tires as they are the originals as well. I'll make this my build thread and post pics along the way as i go. I'll be putting a muzzy exhaust on it, steel braided brake lines, and some powder coating. I'm gonna go for a Black and red theme.

Here she is. Ill post better pics tomorrow

Look forward to seeing what you do with her.

Are you keeping that windscreen? Doesn't look like you can see anything out of it.

No I hate it lol. I'll be getting a smoked one. I don't like the style of this or the color. I wish I knew what brand was on my old 05. It was perfect
