That picture just brought a big smile to my face. It looks like a box full of motorcycle porn.

Keep us posted on build-up, Jim!

Jimmy,

I have to say you have one of the best looking, and classiest (if that is a word) MV i have ever seen. The all black/carbon, with the additions you have made will make that one scary fast bike!! If you take progress picks you know we will be drooling over them!

You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this, going
flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.

woooooo looks nice mate. Whats the damage in cost for the kit and whats involved with the 1080 kit? Does the kit includes a new engine block and crank or is it just an oversize piston?

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

My questions, too. It can't just be Wiseco pistons ( by the way, with that Wiseco part number shown you can get pistons and rings directly from them). Will you be sending the cylinders out for re-bore? What's involved???

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
