Bought it privately from a member of the Club Aprilia forum and it already has the following goodies.

Renegade air box mod.
Aprilia race chip, instead of a PCIII.
Leo Vinci race can, soon to be changed to an Akky I bought way before the bike.. Embarrassed
Pazzo levers, not to sure about these yet, need to do a few more miles
Zero Gravity DB dark tint screen.

I also have a few other bits and bobs, including service manuals, cd roms, spare ‘o’ rings and crush washers for oil changing and also all of the standard parts.

I also need to get some ear plugs, the induction noise actually hurt my ears on the way home and the can is also quite short so it gives a real bark to the exhaust note...
I suspect the Akky will be a bit quieter as it's a couple of inches longer but I will try it and see as the Leo is a bit scratched.

Anyway enough waffle, here are the pictures after a quick clean. We got wet on the ride home yesterday  Cry

last time I looked they were not accepting new members for some reason..
 
It's changed abit now :
Pazzo levers are gone, too short for my fat fingers,
the stomp grip is gone, didn't like to look of it and stopped me easily moving around the bike,
Leo Vinci end can gone and replaced with Akropovic TI oval,
I'll get some more piccies up soon as it stands now.
 
Other jobs done included replacing all the hydraulic fuild and getting the rear brake back to how it should be, oil and filter change and other general messing about moving levers and stuff to suit me.  Just need to get it set up for me then that's it.
 
Next thing on the list will be 16/44 sprocket combo but only when the current chain has had it.
