    thank you for the comments! the bike is being transformed, I extends the fork with dual rectangular headlights, I do not know the rack because the context is unknown, No I have no rear brake is in process indeed is the shifter left and the clutch as I change gear with your right hand!! has come a metalflake paint, the pots are handmade thank you friends

  10. mike lytle says:

    Lulu send in more pictures when you get done. your english is way better than my french! just a thought, have you ever considered mounting the clutch lever to your shifter lever?? you would be able to keep your right hand on the twist grip that way. just a thought, respects.

    ..not a bike…a joke with 2 tires.
    I knew I had to do little things “nothing important” but still…Even if there were things to see … the engine was beautiful and healthy frame
    The bike is very difficult to start but once in office … the sound of the exhaust could not hide too many engine noise … some kind of steel maracas with big “kling”…
    So , i’ve been , i’ve seen and i come back at home with my money in the pockets .
    So , i’m still looking for!
    for DAVE :this noisy mess is sold 2700 euros !!!

  20. fanoboss says:

  21. Dennis says:

    you were smart to pass, IMO. “kling” is so no good….

  22. vincestagechopper says:
