Hello Alex,

This is truly breathtaking. By far the highest standard custom frame for a RD/YZR replica I have ever seen. At least in terms of craftmanship and design - I cant tell about the handling but I trust you have put as many thoughts into the chassis layout as into the fabrication. Are you doing all the machining yourself?

You proof my theory - the best talent to design high perfomance and beautiful cars and bikes has always been in Italy.

Ciao

Wolfgang

Yes Wolfgang, project and machined by myself.

about handling, i liked both bikes very much, unfortunately i didn't run lot of times, but i really appreciate rides
for a definitive answer we need to organize a test with Dubsey :smt003

That is some beautiful workmanship. Wish I had a small amount of talent like that. Great looking frame.
