so is disc brake.

guess again?
Wind tunnel developed production fairing? If I am right that is three things so far?

They were early with foot shifting but wasn't the flying Squirrels earlier? I am just guessing.

Does it count if I'm almost done (until I ride and it tells me what else it needs) and just waiting for the solo seat and a couple of bits?

Either those photos have some panorama or that frame is bent big time. I knew a guy that had a bent frame that looked about like that. He said he liked it that way. He wasn't much of a rider.

Would you mind pointing out exactly where you feel it's bent?

I see a lot of bends in that frame, but to my eyes, they were put there by the factory.

1. nonsense
2. yes there is some lens distortion.

to me it looks like a lot of fun.

You guys don't think the front tire is a little closer to the engine than normal? I have positively seen a few like that with my own eyes. It looks to me like the front end is tucked. I think nonsense is a little strong since it at least looks tucked in that photo. From my experience, it isn't nonsense at all to think it is bent. That is if it isn't the lens like I already mentioned. :)

I gotta agree, as soon as I looked at the side photo, I thought this this hit a truck" could be a weird photo, but...it sure looks like it has lost about 8 degrees from the rake.

Nice looking bike BTW!

yes I noticed the rake appears a little steep as well but my first guess is lens distortion.
That would be a lot of work to put into a bike with a bent frame and not notice something was amiss.

The tire does look awfully close to the points cover. Another thing is the forks don't look parallel.
