Based on a 1979 R100S, this little gem has just been finished for a customer and it's off to the Bike Shed Show in London along with "Fast Orange".
Rob wanted the paint job to replicate the classic smoked orange/silver of the early '70's R90S, and I have to say it looks fab. A great job by Darren of DF Bike Paints.
Lots of satin black is set off nicely against the silver engine detailing, chrome Monza fuel cap and stainless spokes. Another excellent wheel building job by Bob at Woolsbridge M/cs.
A custom subframe is fitted to take the smaller Gel battery under the single racing seat and along with Tarrozi rearsets, Hagon shocks, upgraded forks with Brembo calipers and stainless braided hoses, it handles and stops well.
An unleaded valve seat conversion ensures it'll run sweet, too. Stainless headers and short reverse cone megas adds a bit of aural delight as well.
