Interesting your frame wieght... my bare naked Kilauea (2001) was 1971.5grams. Stupidly, I forgot to wiegh it again, having it freshly powecered, decal'd, and 2k lacquered

Will look lush when you have it built up... Mine just requires the right amount of daylight/sunshine, to be able to get some decent pictures 8)

I confidently predict this bike is going to look very smart indeed.

Look forward to seeing it.

cheers for comments :D

I'm thinking about some compact RF Turbine in either black or gunmetal grey, with black Specialities TA rings.

Any recommendation for lightweight and reliable ISIS BB ?
