HI Thanks to my mate pete for posting some pics (get well soon).

Also thanks to all comments so far.

This bike has been built to look sharp and eye catching and not a custom scooter.

The spec GP200 frame with jet headset top & bottom (make's 1" lower than with std GP a trick we all did when racing many years ago)
The horncasting has been ground down and filled to do away with V, and a cut out at top for ease of cable replacement,
Anti dive front disc with remote master cylinder under horn casing.
Panels have had vents frenched in to help with air flow, toolbox door was also for cooling but we found out later that we had to fit a battery
somewhere ie toolbox.
A battery has had to be fitted to power the fuel gauge in petrol tank also it powers the electric power jet (as used by Guy Topper) which is operated from light switch on headset.
It uses carbon fiber cowls & mudguard which are held in place by Titanium race spec bolts (heads have holes drilled through the flats).

No,that's what I thought.

I was hoping for a brown paper bag on the seat :D
I do not try to explain why I ride Lambrettas,
For those who understand, no explanation is necessary,
For those who don't, no explantion is possible.
