My Burning Copper Metallic (orange) Hayabusa had almost 94,000 miles on it. Although it still looked good and ran very well, it felt like it was time for something new. Really wanted a ZX14 but funds would not allow the purchase of a new bike and sidecar so the decision was made to find a low mileage first generation Hayabusa and transfer the sidecar to it (the sidecar can only be mounted to the first generation frame. The second generation '08 and newer is different enough that it wouldn't work). Hard to find a Hayabusa that hasn't been molested but found a really clean, completely stock 2007 in Atlanta with only 5,700 miles. The switch went well but matching the paint was a challenge. The painter mixed the paint twice per Suzuki's paint code but wasn't right. Tried Colorite and it took them two tries before they could get it to match. Finally done and on the road - very happy

Dang Shutterfly! I created a link to my pictures and they did show up but apparently the link times out after a bit of time. I am probably doing something wrong, I will keep trying to figure it out.
