Don't like the look of that oil cooler where it is,
Hmmmm, wonder what size tyres are on that beast, if it's a 16" I can use K460 Dunlop, 17" / 18" have to use D606's
Cheers

Interesting, parts & mods include;
from MikesXS - Dutch Oilcooler/filter system, flatslide carbs/manifold/extensions [come as kit], filter pods, probably running a brushless alternator with a solid state rectifier/regulator, rear sets, Brembo disc, rear shocks, two-into-one system, instruments - tacho & speedo, all these come from MikesXS in Florida, guess who went shopping!
Cheers
