....work of art! those spoke wheels do set the bike off well. I'd be inclined to ditch the carbon brake shrouds and change the tail to a 1050 tail piece... but otherwise £15k... out of my league!

This was up for sale on ebay a few months ago and didn`t sell. I must admit the quality of the engineering work looks amazing. It is one of those instances where most people will think that for 15K they would have something different, but for probably one or two people this will be their dream bike worth 15K.
I wouldn`t want to clean it or have to keep the ally looking that good mind. Probably one for display in the lounge?
