This Poor 999......

So I have a Brutale 910s, and I go on craigslist all the time secretly looking for a 999 (I like my MV, but still find myself wishing I had a dry clutch to look at and that V-twin sound to hear ahhhh) Anyway, look at this shit: an 04 999 (5800 miles) for $11,000. What makes it so special you ask? He has chopped up the fairing, stretched the swingarm out 12 inches, and re-sprayed it with his special "House of Color Tru Blue". For that extra something, he topped it off with a NOS "Nitrous Twin Purge" for which he claims he has never used the nitrous, lol yea I'll take his word for it.....ha This is so disgusting how he ruined a perfectly good 999 I just had to show someone or I was going to throw up

whats wrong with that? the guy took a salvaged 999 that would have ended up sold off as pieces if he hadn't rebuilt it. drag bikes may not be our style, but its a bike saved, and at least to me it doesn't look bad at all.

2005 999s (BST's, carbon tank, Braketech rotors, titanium here and there)
1998 916 (carbon everything but the seat and tank, Arrow cans)
1995 900ss trackbike project (Full D&D spaghetti system, 39mm FCR's, mono seat)

Nooo, he makes it clear in the Ad that it only had some cosmetic damage, its not like the bike was in pieces and he put it back together. This is no "drag bike" this is just some poser recreation of one, just like thos stupid GSXR bikes with the huge swingarm and Chrome lit up rims.
BTW, I'd rather have the pieces lol, please someone tell me they agree with me

who knows ,maybe hes the smart one. a modded 2004 999 with ohilns and mag swing arm likely wouldn't sell for $11,000 in this market.

giallo 949- impractical,irrational,irresistible ,13 txt pro 280,11-12 gasgas cervantes 250- all in all ,my version of garage nirvana

I like it. It's different and appears to be well done. Hard to tell from the crappy pics but it looks like he did a good job. Mind you I wouldn't buy it, but....

96 916S Marvic mags, Ohlins, Scott's, CF bits & bobs
95 900SS stock but for carbon cans
62 Monza Jr. A whopping 160 with no body parts!
75 860 GT, stock and unrestored runner.

RIP Mr. Nixon. I'm happy I finally got to meet you.

Same opinion here.
Funny that he still has the turning lights on the front .

Was just wondering how they allign the chain with such a fat rear tire?

Just think, you wouldn't need a kickstand. If the nitrous is real I would like to see what it can do in the quarter. I wonder if it can turn in. The chain question is a good one, I wonder myself. I'll bet it has a dual sprocket just in front of the tire, using two chains. Overall, it looks like a mutant Diavel.
