Imitation is the biggest form of flattery

I know I'm going to get torched here, but thought I would post up pics of my finished project. I would like to thank CAG for the parts and everyone else here on the board that answered my questions.

This may seem a silly question but I'll ask it anyway.

If you wanted to build a quasi MV why didn't you just get a real MV????

The bike is not my cup of tea but kudos to you on the oustanding work and clever engineering feats.

Looks great, nice carbon. it almost looks like the chain has some extra slack. How does it handle?

Thanks Graves. The swingarm wasn't too bad. The pivot width was identicle, the wheel and chain centered up perfect. It was just a matter of enlarging the shock tunnel and mounting the shock and linkage mounts.

I guess my best answere is this, If I used that mindset on my other bike I would not have a big enough garage. Let's see, I would have to buy a 1994 f2, 1998 cbr900, Ducati 998, Yamaha r6, and a Gsxr1000.


Trust me, I would love to have a MV, In fact I'm looking at possibly buying a 2007 now, but I prefer the frankenbike.

Yeah, I had just put the chain on but was still waiting on the PBR rear sprocket. It came in the next day.

Thanks, didn't expect this much appreciation from the MV guys. Figured it would be hate hate hate.

I really like it except the orange everywhere. I'd just leave the orange to the rims...looks great though.

May you live as long as you want, but not want as long as you live
