Too much detail to throughly cover, but the triple Brembo brakes - 65-70 RWHP, Marzocchi front suspension and Ohlins rear are some high points. He also made his own, beefed up, crankcases on these later bikes. I added the Ohlins shocks and one-off alloy chainguard. The original adjustable Progressive Suspension shocks and chain guard will go with the bike. The fuel tank itself is a poly tank, and the fibreglass shell doesn't contact the fuel. This bike looks, runs, and sounds amazing !
