I believe it is. I super enjoyed all my time riding and hanging out with the Alberta Boys.

Seriously, nice build repsol. Since you aren't going to produce these, care to share detailed build plans so others can give this a go?

Super cool old Guzi I would rock that for sure. Untill it broke and I couldn't get parts.

Dude, I don't know what you do for a living but, I think you could start up a business making these.
I'm sure the majority of the time you spent making your own was wondering where to put what and trial and error but, the next time round should be a piece of cake.
I'm sure you got a ton of requests to build one for die hards and I'm sure the cost of building one would exceed the current price of a used KTM 950 but if people are willing to pay the $10K you would need to build one, why not do it?

This project has been talked about for years here and on other furums and you were the one who stepped up and got the hacksaw out.

One word: LIABILITY... If he built a production run and one person
Broke a motor mount or frame rail he could be sued.

Once again 'Sol great job man. I finally got all my parts sold and $2000+ in paypal ready to buy more parts for my build.
