Hey Mitch, it's a 1975 850T that has been stretched to 950cc and had a 45mm fork added. There are lots of non-factory parts on the bike, but as I get things dialed in a little better, I find it's a really fun bike to ride. It was a 14 month project that I've been thinking about for many years.

There is a similar shot to the one I posted here, and a couple others in the thread noted below.

Edit: you have to scroll down the page to get to the photos.

While that's a wonderful stable, keep in mind that his entire collection can be had for less than the price of a new VFR, give or take. :)

I am having thoughts. Deep, serious thoughts.

You mind giving me a quick overview of the older Tuono?
