Some things need time. Between screwing on 25 bicycles and two SR500, building a house for my club and some more - the parts for the Thruxton arrive. Thanks god - wintertime!!! The bike sleeps in my garage and wait for the new dress. Next time i show you more.

Yes, i use NON POLISHED aluparts !!

Nice oldstyle optic !?
And before somes guys ask for the price - it`s arround 1400,- !

Hi Kornfed,
the rich man was not me - it`s the guy who ride this bike. I buy for arround 6000,- parts for the Thruxton - but he has some others to ride.
Desmosedici - only for 1/2 a year - than it was stolen out of a garage - now 1198 with perfect race outfit! any question ??
Thruxton is the daily bike to ride to the office! But - respect! - he has no car !!
Andreas

The springs is coming - bike must go out of my workshop. Alot fu.....ing fitting problems with seat and tank. But after some hours it will work.
I must only fix the parts and the bike is ready to ride. Also the new oilcooler and oilpressuregauge is fixed and i hope after restart the oil
stay at is workingplace. Im sure next work is a new pair of wheels - with bigger reartire and maybe in 17".

Hi Jon ,
thanks for the "flowers", but i have alot trouble with the aluparts. Never again i will order some parts at the German company "Lammers" =
Alutanks Germany! It was really no fun to make them fit at the bike.

Hi Jimi,
very easy, frist - the owner want`s it like this - and it`s near impossible to wrap the exhaust. Not enough space - maybe i can tape them together, but this fu..ing tape is not friendly - difficult to fix it .So it looks like he want it.
Used, raw, dirty und unfinished - that`s it .

No - these are the combilights , turn, brake rear on both side. No a cheap deal - take 450,- and you get them ( 4 Kellermann + switch)
