    Damn, but don't that Buffalo look wicked! Before yer done, I'd suggest getting rid of the CV carbs for slide-throttle Mikuni's, and 'float' the rear brake to eliminate chatter. You can use an early GS-750 rear hub to swap the drum for a disc and caliper. You'll love the difference. Might also consider letting Woody's Wheel Works do a 'Superlace' and seal the rims for tubeless tires.

    Here is a modern version of this design from BMW. Looked real cool. Much like this one. I love the out of the box thinking.

    No. It's a stock R100R, with an R90S fairing and tailsection, with some minor mods in the instruments and mirrors. Don't know what he's done inside the engine - could be stock or souped-up. The really neat thing is the trick underseat muffler - that's totally custom. The tank, suspension, and chassis are all R100R.

    The seat is an early R100RS single seat.
