Very smart orange orange + others!, just got patriot 7+ back from powder coaters went for something a bit different colour wise and new type stickers.

Having fun feeding braided gear & brake lines thru the swing arm!

Cheers Josh, just need to sort out front caliper but been out for a quick blast this morning and the patriot is such fun around town with some maxxis hookworms.

Found best way to route brake and gear cables thru swingarm was using a wire coat hanger and 4 bottles of becks.

You really cant beat a good old blast around town. Concrete playground.
I had trouble with routing when i had a patriot, i put it out through the side of the swingarm first - woops. I seem to recall its easier to put it in from the rear? May be wrong though.

Awesome collection you have there mate!
the alpine and 223 look really smart. Had to get rid of my 223 recently as I cracked it - got a sunday instead and it's much better, the geometry on those 223s was very strange :?
