Ohlins Forks on Thruxton??

I ran across an article that had this photo of a thrux with Ohlins forks. Has anyone seen/done something like this? Input would be greatly appreciated.

i've seen a few people that have done it here, great suspension, but with the look of my black thrux I just can't get over the color. wish they had them in all black or black and aluminum look.

they are great though and at $1300 they should be

If I could find an Ohlins fork for my Sprint for $1300 I would buy it, even though the shop is just finishing the installation of ZX-14 forks on mine. I have them on my Duc and am very pleased.
