Unfortunately, the forks themselves are bone stock. The only difference is that they worked in different-looking triple tree clamps and USD neoprene fork boots. Otherwise, the forks are bone stock.

Re the one disc, they simply removed the right side disc, caliper, and cables. No biggy.

Fortunately, after further analyzing of the photos, everything looks to be real except for the plastics. They look fake as hell! They are obviously not done making those plastics a reality. I bet they don't have the tank situation figured out yet either.

PS also regarding the stock forks in the photos: If I had the money to have Wunderlich build me one of these things, what's another $1800 for Ohlins cartridges?

well, 60+ lbs lighter is really good. i'd be real concerned about how much lighter will it make my wallet. and how much less "all-world" usable, for that matter. it remains a nice exercise in "let's go nutz on it".

Yeah, I agree the F800GS' ground clearance is a big factor offroad. Probably even more than the weight.
