First ride after a rebuild. Still got plenty to do to finish it off but the first ride always puts a smile on my face.

Simple, clean and nice. Nothing there that isn't needed. I really like that bike.
Nice work.

Thanks MyKill. I can't take the credit for the styling It's just a copy of the BMW Basic but using 1000cc running gear and engine. I love the simplicity of the Basic design but prefer the 1000cc engine over the 800.
