    Those are 1050cc Venolias. They work great with modded squishband heads.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the modded heads. Won't be long before I have them apart, though, so I'll get some pictures up soon.

    It's too bad that all the motorcycles you own need upgrades and modifications to make them good. :huh

    WP 50's are 2.5" longer between the lower steering stem bearing and the axle. Raising the rear the same amount should be straight forward with the 1150 swingarm and a suitable shock.

    Particularly, trail at various rake angles?
