    Here we are!
    Purchases of parts for the reconstruction of my beloved child have been increased, the beginning of the work is quite close. Some picture will explane more than thousand words.
    P.s. sorry for my bad english.

    I'll be watching this one.

    Do you have a local (to you) source for new Bimota parts, or are they all used ?

    I don't thing to need original parts, I want to build a special, maybe an endurance classic.

    Are you planning to actually ride this bike upon completion, or will you just hang it on the wall of your living room?
