    UJM's are awsome!... All it takes is a little imagination and they can be converted to just about any type of bike you want. :thumb

    Check out the Aprilla Shiver SL 750, 416 lbs or the Moto Guzzi Breva 750 with 7" ground clearance and 401 lbs. plus shaft drive, bothe good candidates for DS mods.
