HOLY THREAD RESURECTION!

So, last week, out of the blue (I had given up on ever seeing the bike again, but thats a whole other story) The fabrication place suddenly sent me a whatsapp.....



Its not final yet, they want me to pop along to make sure I'm happy before they do all the mounts permanently.

Which brings me on to a question for the few left here. Anyone got any recommendations of places that can make custom decals? The race rep ones I want are very niche and not available it seems

Similar (ish) style to the Buel, a Sachs B805 when they occasionally come up for sale are around that price

Same with a Royal Enfield Fury

Sticking with a triple theme, Benelli Tornados creep down to that price

Is that meant to be engine oil or the mold for a chocolate cake?

Quite a few years ago now i remember an article where motogp engineers were asked to design what they imagined would be the ultimate bike would look like.

Most ended up looking like furitistic versions of the dust bin type fairings

As others have said, even for a homologation special, they are not revered enough or have the same status as NC30 etc, so is about twice as much as they would realistically get for it I imagine

Not sure if this guy has got his hands on some of the mythical road bikes that occasionally raise their heads or if it is just replicas?

No photo updates, but as of a couple of weeks ago the bike is with a fabrication place to have the mounts for the fairings made up

After over a year, its roaring along
