My Dream Bike too! I bought a Zaskar back in 94 and loved it,but used to drool over the Xizang in the catalogue.
Always wanted one and now i do! Really can't wait to get out on her for a ride, wondering how she'll handle.
I've just moved a DEAN Ti on and that was a lovely ride,so i'm expecting so much more.
Anyways a little progress was made today!!! will put pics up shortly

Cheers

Dave

I have stayed with the 97 Decals but custom colours!! Will have to wait and see! looking forward to them arriving,i've never liked blue on my bikes(a personal thing),Gil is on the case, so should be here in a week.

And yes is a 16" KillerTurtle

Cheers

Dave
