Merry Xman guys. I'm gonna buy myself some carb jets and a fork brace!

As for that picture Pete I found another one online



It's like a VF500 interceptor front end with a VT500 Ascot tail perched upon a swing arm front suspensioned tube frame.


Then I found this article.

This guy worked with Yamaha to make the GTS back in the day. Well the GTS was a huge turd and didn't sell well at all. After that roll of the dice it scared the pants off the Jap bike industry which they've stated are very reluctant to risk taking (big surprise). So after that you'd think this idea would be garbage but after reading the various articles I found and the feedback from the testers I feel that their may be hope for this design yet. Maybe the fork has seen it's day.
