Well that was random!

I decided earlier in my life that I wanted to buy an RX-7. I was set on it! Rotary, rotary, rotary!!! That is all I ever talked about! That sweet sweet sound of a buzzing engine going about! Back-firing bliss with some beautiful revving to go along with it. When the time came, that was what I was going to buy....

.... then a 2001 Suzuki SV650S with only 7,500 miles on it came along and I bought it for $1,700. It needs work, but thanks to my awesome brother who is a motorcycle mechanic, he got the thing ride-worthy... ish. It needs rear disk and pads, fork seals, rear tire, and fairings (optional at this point). Here is the bike in pieces right now.
