I bought it like that from the previous owner. Looked like it was tipped over. The only damage was the exhaust and grip. I got a killer deal on it and it only has 600 miles. The bike was red and I didn't want another red bike so i had a friend paint. Although now I need all new gear to match.
cool, safe travels.
I used to do that, get different color gear when i traded in a bike, now i decided to just get black/gray stuff so it'll pretty much go with whatever, if i change again down the road; or add a 2nd bike in another color!
