Ok, picked it up yesterday. Here is a crappy phone pic.



I haven't ridden it yet, but am pretty impressed so far. A lot of CRF450X parts will fit, such as the Rekluse clutch and hand brake I will be installing, brake pads, bodywork, and the Supermoto wheels, although I need to get another front hub with the one way clutch and drive mechanism laced up to my wheel.

I was pleasently surprised that the suspension doesn't have the usual 150lb rider settings?! In fact, it seems about right for my 200+lb weight. The Paioli forks are also very cool, with a pre-load adjuster normally only found on street bikes. It also came with tapered pars and adjustable bar mounts similar to KTMs. I will report back after a ride.
