I cant help but like the look, but the idea of a 400lb trials bike does not sound like fun!?! neat looking bike though, and in fairness, perhaps as light as 380lbs.

I'd guess much lighter than that. My R65LS with full tank and tools is 425.

It looks great - but what happens to the little light when the front suspension reaches 2/3 of its stroke?

I'm looking at the backside of the mount in the large photo. I'm guessing it can be quickly removed or folded out of the way.

High pipes make pannier options more of a challenge... Ask me.

Looking back through here, I can't help but want to point out how pretty this bike is! One actually has to look, to notice it is not a vintage motorcycle, very well executed!

That's true - it's well executed and pretty, but would make a terrible scrambler!

Funny that it looks like an old time dirt bike, but without rear shocks would last maybe five minutes in the rough stuff. With all the time and effort that went into it, I'd think they'd have put some attention into setting up a hidden mono shock system so it could look pretty much as it is, yet have suspension.

This is true, perhaps some Vincent twin lay down shocks, pointing up under the seat!?!
