Amazing Restoration
Thank you so much for posting such great pics and description of your work. I have a 2006 GTS250ie that a friend has given me after his crash with 296 original miles on it and would like to do the same with. It has a bent frame so I need to take it all apart, have the frame straightened powder coated and then put back together. I hope to achieve the same end result you have.

whodatschrome: I tracked down the owner and he gave it to me for free

T5bitza69: You're right! It was a cool color at first, but I've grown tired of it. I think I'll repaint it this spring

1wheel_drive - Disassembly -The file you posted for this seems no longer available. When I click on the ling I get a '404 - That file isn't here anymore' message.

Is there any chance you can re-post it please?

Amazing post. I spent a lot of time reading and going through everything. Awesome job! All in all, what were your total costs to do this and how much time did it take from start to finish?
