New Bike is Pulling Me!!!

I just saw this, and I've just GOT to have it. Haven't figured out how I tell the Mrs she can't ride with me on the Wing anymore, but hey it's been a pretty good 32 years...can't really ask for any more than that from a man can you?
Oh drool...

Probably corner 'better' than a stock Wing; lighter, better ground clearance, Fireblade front end...

Sorry if I spoil it to you but the front end is from the old Hayabusha with the axial 6 piston calipers. The rotors and wheel are Suzuki too, not Hayabusha's though....
If you want to make use of the whole 10 degree leaning that this thing can do, it would be better if you replace the front end and use a Fireblade's with at least Ohlins springs and fluids in.
Happy exhaust pipes dragging

Didn't look that close at the front end, the builder said it was off a 'blade so I took him at his word (What's that Mr Barnum?) Rats, my pipe dream becomes a nightmare Bwahahaha
