Info: I bought this with my graduate loan to commute to my first job after passing my degree. Fell in love with the beast when I saw it. Regretted it ever since...well, sometimes. Went through 2 alternators, a speedo drive, a water pump seal, a headlight bulb, 2 batteries and 2 sets of tyres. Sold for the same price I paid to a little old man who loved it too.

Info: This is the hubbie´s bike. He seems to enjoy it :o) It has a Remus exhaust system and an ignition advancer, just to make it extra scary. AJ bought a Sargeant seat to discourage pillions. He likes to practice his wheelies on this. It´s got BT010s fitted which wear quickly but give unbeatable grip in all conditions. He plans to drop the front headlight cowl and fit mean little twin headlights. It cl

Info: This is AJ´s project chop. It used to be a US Import KZ750 Spectre. Basically the same as a GT750 shaft drive, in-line four except for a clean air system that can be replaced by a blanked off cyclinder head. The frame, bars, seat and rear mudguard are all one-offs by GLF Engineering, Lincs. Paint will be by Aerocoat, Norfolk and the custom seat is being made by SmartRRRs of York.
