What was broken is now fixed with upgrades
Bike looked like this...
Clavicle looked like this...
It now looks like this...
and the bike now looks like this...
Long story short; I was rear-ended while on a ride. No pictures of the bike crashed as I wanted to get up and back before the adrenaline wore off, but it was scrapped up good on both sides. Progressive came through for me and I was able to replace all the broken bent parts with aftermarket stuff and replace any wear items I could along with a few upgrades. Painted it my self and got the decals from Crispy Designs. Trying to save money on paint was probably not worth the time/effort. I really had a hard time prepping and painting and ended up re-doing several pieces. The paint really didn't turn out all that great, but that is what the decals are for.
Still need to sort out a few things; ABS is not working and the chain looks a little tight now that I look at the picture. I have been really hard on that bike and it has stood up to all my abuse from riding to mechanical mistakes. She's a keeper!
