xr1200 inverted fork front end (says with a 'free spirit stem i assume the had to use an different steering stem)
xr1200 front brake calipers
one-off swing arm (three-point rear suspension Mount Adjustable)
ohlins XJR1300 rear shocks
suzuki bandit 1200 5. 5J rear wheel

glide 17-3.5 J front wheel

rsd tachometer
K & H carbon knee support

mikuni HSR42
among other things.


regardless it's an amazing machine and looks good.



i would LOVE to have those knee supports. they wouldn't even have to be carbon. sometimes when you hit the backroad twisties it would be wonderful to lock your knee into something without pulling your knee all the way to the tank. for those of us who have rearsets.

I sold the yellow racer (Motonisto nr.3) just recently, after being on market for a year.

and btw i really like these you did.


the lines on this one are gorgeous. the fairing and the seat cowl fit very well together.



this one looks mean and again the seat cowl looks really good on it. that exhaust almost reminds me of the newer xr1200 exhausts. i have been contemplating getting one to fit on my bike.
