In terms of function its about as far away from anything vaguely authentic P65, as a factory Moto GP bike is from well used BMW airhead.

Problem with the ground up new bikes is that they tend to mean events set out much much harder, which makes things very difficult for anyone on more authentic machinery.
Oh, I know....

This is just where I am at right now. Since we do not have a separate P65 class, I would be riding with everything twin shock, so not such a big deal for that.

On the cost side of things. I am starting from scratch either way, whether it is a HT5 Gov132 replica or the one above, it ain't gonna be cheap.
