The Daytona

My best build to date.  Has been done for a decade or more.  Does not get the attention she deserves.

Curious, what kind of fork brace is that? Custom made?

Thanks fellas. 

Motocarrera pipes and rear sets.  Best obtainable pipes in my opinion.  Rear sets are not my favorite and I will eventually change them- they are the originals not the updated version. 

I bought the fork brace on ebay way back- it was advertised as being made by motocarrera but I never was able to confirm in spite of meeting Doug a few times.  The forks are actually off a TX500- I still have the option of going dual disc- I know this is totally unnecessary.  Hubs are RD350.
