I like this bike a lot. the knobbies look mean as hell, knee pads are a nice touch, the raw look really suits it, but that's not to say a killer paint job wouldn't also suit it. all the pieces fit and complement each other, nice flow from front to back. what's the tail light on that thing, looks interesting from that last pic.

Sharp. Nice choice of brakes.
What's it like getting parts in Portugal?

That is one badmotherfucker!
I dig the heim joints for fender struts & inverted clutch lever.
The knobbies make it look badass, but probably sucks on the street.
Post a few more close ups to show details.

DEEEEEE LICIOUS! What are the roads like in Portugal? Those knobbies may be exactly the right thing.

The bike is not mine...
and this is the best pictures available yet.

Streets here are fine...
but also can choose roads that are suitable for a dirt track!!! hehehe

Knobbies...
he tells me that are stock for BMW TT bikes
and i suppose are for looks on his... i love them!!!

Tail light i search for better picture
or take one with my mobile as soon as i can.

I really love to own this bike!!! hehehe

Aftermarket parts here...
are mainly from German suppliers, i think.

I've driven in Portugal and I can see why those tyres would be useful. Cool bike!!

Beastly. Every once in a while someone does a street bike with knobbies that's just sick, where the tires compliment the whole versus take away. Paint that thing.
