Here's a before and after of my '00 Blade. I got bored with it so sold all the fairing on Ebay. Currently halfway through Streetfightering it, but keep spending all my money on mtb stuff!

If I had more money than sense, both are in very short supply, I'd track down a Silk 700. This was a twin cylinder LC two stroke developed from the Scott bikes of the 30's - 40's.

Lots of power, lots of blue/grey smoke, lots of mechanical fragility and zero spares backup :roll: :lol: :wink:

A bikes no fun unless it brakes down in the middle of nowhere after several miles of butt clenching exciting riding and ozone layer damage.
Ah my long departed yoof, those were the days :D
