    Rear suspension appears to be pullrod, like some Buells and some more oddball machinery.

    There are some parts of this I don't mind. The seat and tailpiece, wheels, F & R calipers and rotors, the shrouded steering damper.

    Not so sure about the bodywork and front guard.

    Definitely dislike the U shaped flappy thing at the back of the swing arm. They are more and more commonly seen to hold taillight, indicators and rego plate. MV are particular offendors at this. Bad enough then for unsprung weight and the ugly factor but when it's doing absolutely nothing as this appears to be...just get rid of it. What's so bad about mounting these bits on the tailpiece anyway?

    And are those NOS bottles above the tank? Seriously?

    The suspension geometry looks like it would be about as comfortable as riding a plank of wood. Hang on when you hit a bump in the road

    Damm,10 K in these time,s where a ot of $$$$.
    Today 2 for sale here in Germany in the 30K $ Range..............for years.
    Still nobody wants.Even the Saet/boattail i found only one for more of 700 $ in a bad condition.Still dreamin put one on my Fat Bob
    I remember the saggy Brake & Fork from my 71 Sportster.

    Unlikely to see one like that now, seeing as Kawasaki now own Bimota

    I actually like the paint. I just think a different canvas would have been better. It could be a motorcycle, just something more elegant.

    Looks like a lady in the car ahead was changing her dress and it flew out the window, wrapping around this bike and blinding the unfortunate pilot who then...wait a sec...oh I see..
