    Erm wow! But yeah no nothing like that....any of that :scratch.

    No in truth its going to be as simple as a good comfy scrapper to do next years ride. Not sure if you'd call in a scrambler, or a bobber, or a cafe racer or what. It'll be ugly but practical

    Thanks for that pic. I'd never seen an RT in that state of undress but with the wheels and suspension in place. Gives you a better idea of how to shape it.

    Yup stripped down to its socks and jocks eh? Im taking all the useless weifht out of it or putting it somewhere more sensible. Ive ditched the abs and servos, moving the battery to on top of the gearbox and a new airbox under the tank. Standard RT tank weifhs less than any other oilhead tank so its staying. Take off all the tupperware so i can service it easily. Just in the middle of removing all the cop wiring, theres a heap of wasre d wiring in this thing. Then fitting a gs triple clamp so i can run proper bars and fitted gs peg brackets so i have some extra leg room. Simple and cheap. Oh, and fun!
