The front faring mount was bent up on the left side, scrape on the left side of the engine along with a bent shifter, the clutch lever has a slight bend, fuel tank is kinda rusty. Not much of an investment at all, was freebie.
The wiring looked intact as if it hasn't been butchered. I've connected a battery to it and hit the starter button but nothing. I'm going to check some fuses and reinstall the instrument cluster to see if any signs of life come from the electrical system.

Still some slight differences between the F3s, so I have to know what I'm getting before I go crazy and start buying stuff. For instance, the 95 and 96 F3s have a slightly different tail section than the 97 and 98 models. I've found one naked F3 that looks about what I'd be into.
This flat black one looks about where I'd like to wind up. Leave the rear tail section on, and throw on a front fender. I may wind in the rain on it like any bike and don't want my back getting sloshed. http://caferacer.forumotion.com/t103-cb ... er-project
This "scrambler" could be an interesting direction to go into as well. Just not pretty, like that one.
