Mike, that's great bike you've built :)

Would love to see some more detail pics and info on the parts used?

Looks like a stock TBS front wheel and discs? Did you use 12R yokes?

Thanks Chaps.

As much as I'd like to take all the glory the builder was a chap in England called Steve.
I am now doing further performance mods to her, cams, exhaust, fuelling, handling etc to get her riding as good as she looks.

I've asked Steve to provide the build info regarding the front end. As far as I know it was a pretty straight forward conversion. Bike was a 2004 zx12.
The only reservation I have with the front is I think it needs a damper as the bike feels like it wants to stand up in hard corners. Other than that it is a beautifully balanced bike. The flat bars are awesome too.

The wheels are Morad polished rims rebuilt on to the standard triumph sport hubs that are powder coated black. TBS twin discs but Tokico calipers.
The 190 section rear tyre looks awesome!

1999 Legend TT
Purchased as a cruiser(ish) bike from previous owner. I want more of a Bonneville(ish) appearance and feel. I was trying to take it back to an older look, but it has too many modernized features, and I dont want to mix era's. With cars, that annoys me. In bikes, I'm heading that way too.
