    newbie to the board and to the Mille (colin edwards)

    Hi folks, just joined today, bought myself a crash dammaged 03 colin edwards rsvr and im looking to fix her up as either my track bike or road bike for next year as i've never ridden a v twin before.

    Gonna try and get her running 1st as she's seen better days at the moment and take her to oulton over the winter and see how she goes.


    Anyway can anyone tell me the diffrences in the 98 to 03 bikes so I don't buy the wrong pannels etc

    Thanks

    Gaz

    ok, heres some pics of it before I started the strip down. The body work is the original CE stuff with the crabon fibre, shame it was painted matt black by the prev owner. Most of it is smashed to pieces now though

    she's seen better days, the father in law broke his back in the accident at island bend oulton park, I was directly behind him on my 7r.

    It is a bit of a mess, but I can sort it.


    My house in much worse condition! lol

    I went to a trackday there earlier this year to watch some lads from another forum and one came off (may have been the same place) and had to be Helicoptered to Hospital that place takes no prisoners by the sounds of it.
