That is a lovely looker in its own right, stunning machine!

I like it as is. Wouldn't do anything to it cos I would only break it.

Yup, seems a shame to cut that un up. Ho hum, your bike, your choice.. Is that an angry grinder I hear...;)

sparkly..would you like to swap it for a limited edition R1 Dynamite..

There will be a bit of sympathy involved , the front cradle is staying as is , rear end will get cut off an replaced by a period reprop so it'll look like a proper factory hardtail .

for the front it'll again be reprop springers , after that running boards on the front and hopefully a full set of fishtails for the exhausts .

So nothing too radical :p
