That is definitely a project. What do you think it will cost to get it looking "ridable"?

Chinese gangsters love getting treated like chumps, according to all the kung fu movies.

$100,000 dollars or three times whatever the OP said it does. Shipping cost to China $6500. Search for Chinese gangster, $ass rape and stolen bike. Two seats to fly ass up home from Chin, $4625. Total, $111,125 + ass rape.

No one knows... MMI doesn't teach the highly technical art of posting pictures on the web. You can't learn that kind of shit in 18 months, that's for sure.

Can't you just feel the love in here?

Wait til winter comes and we spend less time riding, things could get nasty!

I think you'd better have running proof soon or the masses will be demanding " Off with your head ", regardless if can attain a 4.0gpa!

Nice to see plans to resurrect a burned out bike.
I owned a '71 Commando that had been in a fire, it became my daily rider for over 6 years.
The HP looks not too bad, it is all relative. Here is what happened to a buddy of mine's F650GS 99 twin model.

He won't be rebuilding this one.





Insurance is still investigating, things move slowly in Veracruz for police reports etc...

How's the bike running?? I haven't seen the HP2 posted in any BMW magazine, so I thought I'd see how the bike dyno'ed and if we can see evidence of your ability to resuscitate the bike.


Or. . . .
