Before the questions roll in, I asked Fyvonit for a larger photo several days ago, but received no response, so I rolled with what I had.
If a larger photo is received, I'll change to the larger photo. Otherwise...enjoy.

I don't know why one would enter a contest with such a tiny picture. I expanded my screen to 200% and it still looks like a tiny matchbox bike. Can't see any details.

Nice ride, unique front fender, Wibbly for the win!

it's not as simple as you may hope. the tops are 51, not 50, so you need to open up your clip ons and top clamp, then you need to fit the wheel which needs some custom spacing for the wheel and rotors. I had to turn down the front axle 1mm as well. but that is a 600rr front wheel on there. could be slightly different for the 51 wheel

i have a few more that i MIGHT be doing, not sure yet, i think my machinist wants me dead to be honest.


this front end was intended to come for the ride with every bike i do. it's built for the standard honda 214mm fork spacing, it should go on just about whatever i want it to. in a previous life it was on my 600rr.

i built a custom one for the 600 as i needed it stepped up for the longer forks and flat clip ons (600rr uses riser clip ons), for the 51 i just opened up the top clamp to 51. though i have a custom top clamp in the works that i'll see if i can get built (my machinist may kibosh it)
