The true "Aesthetics of speed" Great proportions and balance between the big tyres/engine and the little tank, in perfect line with the handlebar...
And the way you take pictures of her, I see you love her!
Only one brake disc for a top speed of 190 KPH, that is real art!

Oh by the way, in the forum!

Really nice caferacer Very Happy combination tank, tyre, engine rocks. A real mean machine

Reminds me of the 'Deus ex Machina' café racers from Australia ( the small tank ), You must visit this site, some great bikes!

Hi Zero...
Nice to have XV guy on board.

It will be good to see what u have in mind to upgrade the front brake,
maybe modern Braided line/ full floater / muli pot caliper ??

Maybe change the whole front end...

Did u engineer the rear wheel to the front ?? are u happy with the set-up ??
And maybe if you feel to talk about what was done with the motor if anything...
Such a great Donk those Yammie twins are so strong.

Hopefully you the talkative type...
so many post pic but that's about it !!

If I'm not mistaken this bike was feautured in last months (may) Big Twin magazine. If the builder doesn't respond here it might be usefull to try and get a copy of that edition. I didn't read the story, so I don't know how much information was given, but it covered a couple of pages.
