I have an '03 sv650s that has been sitting in my garage unridden for the 
last two years.  The motor is sound, and I believe the frame is straight. It 
still rides like it is straight, and is fine to the eyeball, but I cannot 
swear to it as I haven't had it measured.  I did crash is hard enough to 
bend the mount for the instrument cluster.   ...but not the forks, go figure.

Anyway, it's mostly stock except for a Penske on the back, a hugger, and 
stomp pads on the tank.  I had had rearsets on it as well, but they didn't 
fair so well either, so I put the stock pegs back on.
