Recent arrival at Kawasaki Towers, courtesy of registered carer Cornish Al. Some tweaking to be done, not least the addition of another 20 gears...

One of my all time favourite colour and graphic schemes. 8)

Looks Great and in top nic,

You cant beat the Old DB's they are the DB's :lol:

Here is one that I got last year for my dad, Its a superb bike with the smoke paintwork with purple laquer, I got it as a replacement for his 89 Axis that got stolen 15 years ago. Its not as light as the Axis. It has hardly been used and had a full Deore II 21 speed groupo with Bipace HP 8)

Oh and yea my Dad is a lanky chap :lol:
