I was wondering whether you are considering building bolt-on subframes to suit the current scrambler/brat/cafe trend? Given the quality of your other items, I would be interested in buying one.

Feel free to PM me if its possible, as I don't get on here much.
I had some lugs machined to build custom rear frames and that's as far as I got. I could build you a rear frame or send you some of the lugs.

Even good craftsmanship does not excuse for this.
I admit. Frank is a plant.

I like how the speedo symbols spell my name (DAN), since it has my name on it, can I have it?

Vulture Culture....

That's funny.

Quick! everyone we have to save the R90S! they are an endangered species...

What ever you do, don't make cool bikes with great little touches.

Airheads are special and best just as they came from from der factory.

Looks like you got the foundation for a very cool machine.

Now... About this filming deal.

Is this one of those shows where there's all this made up tension, and some fake deadline?
Or will it be more waxing poetically about the freedom of the machine and the elemental soul of an airhead?

Have they shot the token B-Roll of sparks flying from a grinder shot yet? Because it's not a motorcycle making movie
until there's sparks flying from grinders..

Beards, beer and Belstaffs? With Selvedge jeans and Redwing boots?

Ok I'm kidding, I like your work and it's great that you are getting some exposure.
And I think this bike is going to very cool. I'm looking forward to the embargo being lifted and we can see more then just the teaser shots.

I've always loved how the face-like front covers make for a great Miyazaki character--like 'Howl's Flying Airhead.'

Thanks for your reply.

As I'm in Australia its a bit difficult to drop the bike into your shop!

I'd be happy to discuss options though. Perhaps on the phone is best?

I thought about posting that photo, too. Really refutes the Myth of the Little Old Slovenian Lady Pinstripers...
