Not crazy about the paint job but like it other than that.
Nice concept and execution, Titan 500 in a GS500 frame with Katana influence.
Not crazy about the paint either, especially on the tail.
We can de-emphasize the tail paint, tie the tail and tank together, and pull the pipes up. Kind of looks like a big YSR50
Like you I was not crazy about the paint, but I think it's a tribute to the Barry Sheene bikes of the mid-70s.
You're so right! And a fitting tribute.
^ I don't like the sub-frame.
And brakes aren't sexy enough.
It wasn't so much it's presence, or lack of, but the lack of support directly under the rider. Okay ... go at it!
How about a pair of the Queen's finest ..... shocks that is - Matchless Jampots?
Ahhh now it makes sense - I didn't put that together.
Or maybe a plunger type rear suspension down grade!
It's not often you see a road legal Manx Norton, it doesn't appear to have a kick starter either. A Benelli 750 six in the background too
Why would you keep the stock airbox if you have pod filters ? More importantly, why would you install pods when you still have a stock airbox ?
I was trying to work out why the front fender is missing. The best that I could come up with he was going for a flat tracker look and if that was the case then I'm going to have to call it a miss
^ Probably not too easily sourced if lost/damaged for some reason. But yeah, it needs the fender, practically and visually.
I'm quite a fan of sporty singles, apart from the gap under the tank and the location of the oil cooler I like this a lot.
