Very interesting lower shock link. Opens up a whole world of modern shocks.

Very nice build indeed!

Its a retro bike thats not that retro anyway. If you think about it, this is a very modern design, utilising very modern materials and using its flexibility with a fixed pivot point.

Its brilliant and i think the design will work really well with the old meets new. I think you are doing a fantastic job there, no money spared!

I look forward to seeing tghe final result.

That looks beautiful! Did it originally come with a rear disc mount or has this been added later?
Thanx Max
