    I will make my own aluminium top yokes, I have taken all measurements and now we are making a nice design with solid work.

    One thing that really overtakes me is how heavy many part are in comparing with bikes I use to work at (Italian classics & superbikes), My idea was not make to much changes in this bike but some stuff like footrests, rear brake system, brake discs are very bulky and heavy

    It's all I can do to take it apart, clean it and put it back together. I wish I could do this stuff, machining any part I wanted. Where do you live, can I buy a house there? Are you married? Do you need a home help? Someone to clean the pool? I hate you.:)

    A made some new hydraulic hoses, I have to confess they are a bit of overkill, they are the same one we use at offshore vessels and at oil-rigs good for 68bar pressure :p.
    But as this is what I have this is what I use...
