Bike sourced, stripped and in the new workshop

09 Jul 2013

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.
