Many news coming soon, engine painting's started and soon will be fitted in the frame, rear swing arm almost ready with inverted disk bolts to allow rc30 wheel fitment. 2k aluminum 188°C resistance by kcolors from Naples is a stunning paint it lies down smoothly and have an exceptional look.

Hope to turn it on towards the end of january. I'm waiting for main jets 115 front 118 rear, my friend Franco will finish the flywheel cover to fit the gsxr1000 k7 generator in few weeks. Me am working on rads and footrests and some electric bits. Am planning to fit a hydrostatic fuel pressure gauge soon and a fuel pump. Paint and plastics within may... Oh had the rear shock adjusted by Rinaldi suspension, and front forks will be reworked by him as soon as possible with specific valves and 5w oil according to the rear shock, my weight and riding style. I hope to get it on the road before june.

My front Magtek 3.5x17 after chemical paint removing (www.Belman.it they works for Ferrari), PEO treatment (www.microncoatings.it they also work for top brands) and powder coated (www.oclean.it very well working).

The weight amount is for the rim without bearings, air valve and anything else. Pure magnesium Peo and paint weight.
Take a look what the PEO is and who makes the treatments for me. if interested send an email to Mr. Sergio (chif manager) and tell him Pietro Arrigoni from Bergamo gave you the link
