    I kinda like the fenderless look but....... bikes look better with fenders.

    Agree'd the yellow one looks much better and complete!!! Of course the V8 special. Got to see the replica in solvang and the real deal in Mandello del lario
    The Laverda V6 is neat as well. Considered painting the Griso Laverda orange but the purists may puke and the kids may think its a KTM. Aprilia flame red is another possibility.

    Yup, and they you'll have 20K to spend on pomade and wheels for your angle grinder. Anything left over can be spent on bad hats, beard trimming equipment and trying to understand irony.

    There are times when a mudguard isn't necessary.



    It also helps if you do it for a reason.



    We won the state championship in our class a few years back. Dunno if Rob's still racing. I haven't spoken to him for a while.

    Suppose you could use pomade on the bevels in a pinch...


    Thought this was an interesting valvetrain and lubrication system on this MG...
    The v8 lump is surprisingly small as well.

    That guy in the top pic - that's the look.
    He looks like a fighter pilot just before taking off for a dawn patrol.

    I love that bike! Yes the MG purists will cringe, but is just screams 8 hour.
