    Ok Jake,
    here re recipe:
    fork and front brake Laverda 750s, the rear wheel from a Benelli 600, the tank from a Guzzi V7, the saddle from a Ducati, muffler from Hattech and the rest is NF and homemade stuff...
    A had a lot of spare parts and so I decided to create a coffee racer with this and called him
    „l‘ espresso“.......

    I looked up and read about Hengstpass. That is another very beautiful place !!

    I am disappointed that Herr Kater did not send us another of his famous ice cream pictures after having a lunch in that scenic setting!!

    :dunno

    Yes - I made the general qualification for university entrance there...... eight long and hard years in this boarding school and had to learn all very essential languages like Old Greek and Latin you need to communicate international and to maintain a NF!

    Hello Jake,
    it’s a little bit faster than the original as it’s better to have impair numbers of teeth and this spur-toothed drive will bring about 2 hp more at the rear wheel. And a better and easier pulled clutch......
