Default a monster is born

these pics show a customers ex works aprillia v twin 142 bhp. being put into a manx frame. a much modded frame. there will be an extra top tube fitted once we know how much space the injection system takes up. there will be more bracing at the rear to accept a cbr 600 swingarm set up. with monoshock.

this should be quite a bike when finished uummmy

That's gonna be awesome. My Aprillia Tuono has the same engine and it rocks. Be nice to see it when it's finished.
