I reckon you might be right there Dougie... will have to have a look when I get home (I think I did scan it in once for a thread, but I can't remember where...)

Edit...

maybe if I tried reading the entire thread again... maybe not!

Here ya are, this thread is going in circles...

nice ain't it? Definitely old GPz nose fairing - they are a bit like rocking-horse poo nowadays, that's why I went for the twin bates on mine...

IMHO 100% is about the engineering skills (not always immediately visible) and the vision of the builder. Fighters aint my thing but I'm not arrogant enough to think that someone else's vision is not worth exploring because it differs from mine. Many posters on this thread, it would appear, are.
The folks who put the mag together do a pretty good job of keeping the majority happy. Let them get on with their job and if you hate fighters then don't read the articles, simple

maybe they do now,dont remember the first streetfighter having many trick bits on it when i first saw it in B.S.H

similar thing with cafe racers,the originals were not all tritons ,bonnies ,rocket gold stars etc,like you see in the classic bike mags,but that's what everyone thinks one is now.
