Congrats, looks to be a quality build. Let us know how the water temps work out with that radiator set up.
Very fortunate that when the unobtainable becomes yours.

That's very interesting mate, I wonder how they fit the Kawasaki swingarm on, what it took to make this. That's the first time I see this setup. Can you measure the distance from the pivot to the wheel axle, in comparison to your other VTR? Now I'm very curious on the length of this swingarm.

Congrats on the new toy, I bet yah you going to enjoy this one allot I reckon.

Cheers mate

nice bike! those look like nice high, comfortable handlebars.

What are those two black "pods" sticking up above the handles?

Brake/clutch fluid cups, my best guess.

Nice bike erno. Is that your 2nd vtr or did you sell yours? That bike has been on this forum. I remember because of the underseat exhaust. He said it was very difficult. I have always wanted one of those.

Beautiful 'fighter Erno!
It looks like it only weighs 100kg.
The front radiator looks more functional, and you can see more of the engine.
The fighters I see with the side rads just look like their fairings fell off.
Do the heat shields work on the pipes or does it toast your right leg?
I like the black metalflake paint too!
