GPMucci,

Fantastic job !

A question about your paint.

From what I saw you painted the white and blue.

Then added adhesive Rothmans graphics to this. The area around the rear tank filler was custom built by you, correct?

How did you get the graphics to fit this area.

Is there a special graphics guy in your part of the world? If so, is he available to do work for others...maybe even in the USA?

Amazing job Gpmucci

I love it although in my opinion the rear silouette is to much heavy.

Did you modify any XR 650 R also?

Beautiful work!

These are metal tanks no? So forks and rear shock had to be resprung right?

What is the weight empty and with the whole Exxon Valdez loaded?

Man, what a beauty.

I try to answer.
The stickers are produced from a friend Emanuel & co, you'll find on ebay under africa twin stickers. These were specific for this bike.
My tanks are in aluminium, really lighter than the original. The rear tank is also the frame, there is not the original under seat frame, just the tank. I didn't get the weight of the bike jet but it is really lighter than the stock one. At least 20 kg less.
