May I inquire as to the asking price? Assuming it's in the Netherlands though =/

You could get a Vinago (Virago made into a Vincent replica).

I did like the modern triton that featured on bikeexif a while back.

The Vinago is in the collection that I manage.  It's a very nice bike.  Greg Haggeman did a very good job on it.

I'm surprised people haven't converted more KTM RC8s into streetfighters.  Trellis frame, high bee stinger tail, pretty looking swingarm and compact instrumentation should have made it great choice.

RC8 streetfighter? Most people would just go Duke which is more hooligan anyway.
post #4942 of 4950
Yea that 1290 Super duke or w/e is the naked version of that bike with even more displacement.

Not really. The RC8 is what they now refer to as an analogue bike: no traction control, wheelie control, antilock brakes or any other electronic falgalcarp. All it has is a slipper clutch, perfect for a simple street fighter. The Superduke has a newer motor with a shitload of electronics, something builders usually like to avoid. The new RC8 has yet to be revealed

Electronics are good IMO

They do suck for building bikes but there are a lot of great old bikes out there.

::He pops in from the first above-freezing day in a week, having seized the opportunity to wash his black A4 without the risk of ice damage. Ah the battle of willpower a man must undergo when his car has been covered in salt for a week. Shaking snow from his black sheekpskin trapper hat and knocking salty mush from his boots - he pops his Veilance jacket in a waterproofing wash. Suddenly his deadpan stare feels a tinge of giddiness as the sauna-like 36-degree day reminds him of something: his beloved Street Triple."

 

Holy shit guys. We've passed the peak of winter. Less than 30 days 'til spring.

Also the blue Harley is an XLH900. 1969. For sale for pennies (relatively speaking: cheap for what Harleys seem to go for). Inquire within.
