Guest craft Posted June 15, 2007 Share Posted June 15, 2007 so this is my baby as she stands today(and could remain for some time). to make a long story short- i lost focus and made a left-hand turn directly into the path of a chevy avalanche. he never saw me. luckily he hit just behind my person. i walked(hobbled) away with a fractured/chipped/sprained left foot, a sprained right ankle, and a good many scrapes and bumps. that was 5/13. to be honest, i've told the story eleventy-billion times, and i'm sorta tired of it. well, one of the fellows that was riding behind me took it upon himself to take my bike under his wing. he replaced the subframe, welded and tapped new holes on the main frame(where the subframe bolts on), mounted my staintune that i had ordered just a week before the accident, and a handful of other little details that i have lost track of. he had the bike road ready in 3 weeks(my body will require at least another 2)! the most interesting repair is, of course, the "stitches". at first it was a "just to get by thing", but, the more i thing about it, the more i like it. it adds a ton of character, and serves as a great reminder every time i look at it. i thought you all would get a kick out of seeing the custom body repairs. i must say that i am very impressed with the VFR's resilience. thanks for your time folks!
