A few tweeks here and there 8)

I have tried to keep everything period (1997), i tried to source some 97 boxxer's (as mike king / steve peat) but as they werent available to the public i settled for the later first general sale edition 98.

only other non period bit is the d521 rear rim (1998)

Thank you, I own my dream bike, I should have had one of these back in the day but I spent all my money on car insurance! Oh the days of 1200 premiums...
