how much did it cost you?

kevan

I don't wanna know..... :D

I bought it new. In '02 here in Australia, the WR426 retailed for over AU$10,000. :D I think I paid AU$9,800 on the road. I've thrown plenty of $$$ at it since then.....

When I did my conversion over to all white plastics, I got the frame done in a gun metal gray, looks much better....

It would be the icing on the cake, along with the black tank. Go for it.

I've decided to strip it down when the weather warms up over here, probably in a couple of months. I'll get a black Clarke tank, but i'm not sure whether to do the frame black, or Gunmetal Grey??? Suggestions? :D Whatever colour I choose for the frame, I may (may, not 100% sure yet) do the swingarm too. Maybe black anodize the swingarm?

imo the swingarm looks better left alone, or you could polish it to contrast. i personally think that black looks good on frames :D......do what your heart tells you :D:D

My 426 has 17" street bike rims. It's for the asphalt only at the moment. :D
