Re: Pic thread...<<japan scene motor bikes>>>

Re: 68 Triumph rigid with Suzuki front end.

That is a sexy looking scoot, more pics of the stance please, that GSX-R front end looks dead on. How much you end up picking the rebuilt engine for? Reason I ask is because my jaw dropped as well...

Re: UK shed built Ironhead

My advice would be to attempt to raise the front first via modifying the existing front end (somebody here knows how that can be done) or buying a new front end altogether and see how that feels. If...
