    Hello Vitto,
    very nice bike!!!
    Congrats from Germany, Bambi
    PS: may I ask, how many litres of petrol that tank takes? I'm working on a Suzuki GN 400 Tracker and I don't like the line of it's original tank, rising towards the head-stock. Your solution might solve this problem ...

    Sorry, I have a proposition for your headlight. Overall, it's very good looking. But I'd slide it down a bit, I think this would lead to a more 'mass-centralized' appearance ...
    Kind regards, Bambi
    PS: In case, that you need more alloy-fenders: May I lead you to this web-site http://www.trophy-sport.de/shop/index.php?cat=c5_Alukotfluegel--Teile-.html ? If you'd be in need for some translation, feel free to ask me! The price-tags for the stock fenders can be read in any language. He also offers custom-made alloy-parts. But the prizes for these have to be calculated ...

    great looking bike. i did a little reading. the honda nx650 is rated at 44 hp and weighs in at 370 lbs. and the triumph scrambler 54 hp (carbed) and 506 lbs (wet). i think you have the sportier bike.

    Hi everybody!
    Here's a little update:

    Let's start with the bad news:

    4 months ago, the FIFTH day I was using the bike, finally completed, an extremely stupid guy decided not to stop at a red light and ran over me.

    I was hurt pretty bad (30 days with crutches) and Bellerofonte, my beloved new bike was hurt also.

    Fork destroyed
    Front wheel destroyed
    Headlight destroyed
    Tank dented

    and so on...

    After I got better I left for 2 months for a medical mission in Macedonia and Sudan. ( That was really on of the craziest and greatest experience of my life)

    Now I've been working in my spare time to cure my Bellerofonte,

    Tomorrow I'll post some pictures,

    Be careful, Ride On.

    P.s. The tank is 7 liters and I usually get at least 150km, maybe more!

    Tomorrow I'll post some pictures!

    Sorry to read this, Vitto and happy that you do recover! All the best for the rebuild of yourself and your bike.
    And my biggest respect for your work at Macedonia and Sudan! It's people like you that the world needs to become a better place!
    Kind regards, Bambi
