    It isn't an Aprilia RXV chassis (it is a 2000's generation HONDA CR/CRF chassis) but it does have the Aprilia swingarm. (sexy piece of aluminium that :sweeti).

    The RXV chassis was a complex two part construction... part alloy spar mainframe, in conjunction with a cro-moly head tube and cradle.

    Well spotted, I looked at it again today and felt the frame looked familiar without twiging it wasn't an RVX. How nuts would it be to ride!

    Some things don't change. When a new bike is released.

    I bought a BSA A50 with a set of those, replaced 'em with 'Ace' bars which made me (feel like I was going) much faster...
