The bike is sourced, stripped and in the new workshop. In the last couple of months I’ve managed to source a 2003 model SV650 in reasonable condition in Stuttgart from ebay. Only problem was that it as in an unrideable condition and I don’t have a car let alone a van! Fortunately I found a UK based courier company that would bring it from Stuttgart to Munich for the princely sum of 100 EUR. Bargain. And here she is in all her pre-stripped down glory.
The main problem was not having somewhere to work, and I was using in a friend’s underground parking space while I managed to find a suitable workshop space in Munich (no easy task!). Finally one was found not far away, so I signed the lease and pushed the semi stripped down SV650 over there.
