    When you said your bike was coming back last Wednesday I figured we were in for some sort of reveal. Too soon for a close-up? :evil

    That's really nice. I love the simplicity of those fuel caps.


    Q: Is that opaque piece 3D printed or sourced commercially? It's fuel safe?

    this is about 20mm under the surface - ok, it's easier to make a spacer (same hole pattern) but i dont like the small acerbis cap...
