Picked up an 01 zx6r for $650 delivered. Frame is cracked but ill be having it welded and checked. No plastics besides some scraps of the stock ones that hadnt been broken off. Acerbis looking street fighter headlight, seats have holes, tires are shot, left rear set is a 1/4in piece of metal fabbed by a blind guy apparently. Brake pedal is broken, tank is shit but holds gas. Biike has a little over 18k on it 2 owners before me, second one never rode it. Bike run good and engine sounds tight. Ill be returning it to stock hopefully, but will probably ride it as a SF until I find all the plastics. Also got the ram air system, head light, and gauge stay with bike.

Currently have a new tail fairing, integrated tail light, and tank on the way. Trying to find decently priced rear sets. The right one is not stock but seems to work.

I noticed how large the can was too, what kind is it? The bike will be great when you are done, I have had to do a bunch to mine too. They had a jet kit on mine, but it was totally off and way too lean. How is the frame so polished? I have seen others like this. Is there two different colors of frames for these years? Or did some get chrome?

i am not sure on the can. Ill have to look closer and see if theres a brand name on it. Not sure for frames but I think they probably came polished or it was polished by the PO

PO polished it, you can see the original matte finish up closer to the steering head. same deal as my bike, PO polished the frame but only what the buffer could reach without taking stuff apart.

I hate polished frames, so I painted mine with VHT roll bar and chassis paint

I plan on painting mine. I think ill be changing the paint scheme to orange with a black frame though. If its too "loud" I can always change it.

Im back! Things got busy and I moved to Wisconsin for a job. Here are some recent photos of the bike. Excuse the quality, taken on my crappy cell. But I there will be some updates hopefully in the next week or so. Got an 07/08 zx6r swing arm and wheel on its way and hopefully front end will follow in the next month! Upper fairing/headlight is for sale as well- decided to make it into a street fighter for now.
