The rear end is a machined down GSXR1100W swinging arm and wheel running a 180 rear tyre. the shock is off a Yamaha R6 as well as linkages from both a SV650 and GSXR400 combined.

The tank is made up of several GS500 tanks with an internal oil tank hence the two filler caps, lengthened at the sides to suit the line of the seat which was designed and now made in house for this bike.

The fairing is a heavily modified Katana 1100 on homemade brackets and mounts.
