Gotta love getting a bike 'naked'

I *so* wish I'd snapped picture last winter to reply to this thread.

I tore a Superhawk 996 track bike down to the bare frame in a 10'x10' prefab shed while my garage was being renovated. It was 20 degrees outside and I was heating the shed with a kerosene heater placed strategically away from the plastic body parts (I kept the fuel tank out in the snow thank you very much ) There were parts EVERYWHERE in there. I had a little path cleared to walk around the frame on the stand and that was it.

On the upside, I got it back together. The garage is now finished. And I rode the Superhawk crosscountry this summer without a hitch

What project spurred this KTM rape?

as to why... i got a good deal on the bike and it had been pretty beat up, so i took the little bit of extra $$$ and am getting new plastics (orange, even though everyone says they like the red better), trail tech, and some other odds and ends. and, as you can tell, some deep cleaning is direly needed.

my klx300r is on the same program for this winter

good deal on the bike yields: new plastics, new dualsport wiring, grease everything that moves, and set her loose on the terrain come spring!

You're not gonna get much sympathy with that lineup in the background.
