    wow, wow, and wow... I think you described yourself pretty well when you say fanatic, but definitely a fanatic with some know how. I know how much hard work goes into something like that and you did an awesome job. A lot better job, in both quality and aesthetics, than most so called "professionals." I fancy myself a fanatic as well, but an amateur compared to the level of work you do. It is quite wonderful when a person with your kind of knowledge and talent, mixed with an obsession for motorcycles, manifests itself into a F***ing BADASS machine. I can only wish to do the same.... with that said... can you possibly come to S. California and teach me all you know? Your RSV is one of a kind and absolutely one of the best I've seen. When you make your own motorcycle company, don't forget us apriliaforum folks!! I got a quick question, if I may, how does the custom exhaust sound, and how the hell did you do all that!?!?! I could barely figure out how to fit the ginormous ECU into a custom tail.... thanks for the inspiration superkart, you do what most of us can only dream of doing...

    hey , thank you friend..


    I was registered here because it's an international forum
    this motor bike and this work are more appreciates here than in France finally….
    I would like to really build other frame with a spirit more racer…
    I think it will come soon… 2009-2010 is one year charged for family and house project…
    i wish bruild one for my brother in 2011.


    i buys a small camera, make a mini film at the next exit so that you can hear the sound of the engine…
    I surely will remake the exhaust with 2 tube D80 separated under the engine, because the current box is too often split.i'will have to do it out of stainless.

    I do not worry us. I go poster of the news when there is. I will show you the other motor bikes in progress.
