Holy Dooley i love that bike!
What are those forks though? I've never ever seen them in my life.
It looks so nice though for such an old bike.


Sanity is not statistical
That is an awesome blend of old and new componentry...

Yeeooww Huck Machine :)

I didn't think I'd be seing a set of stratos's again, I thought they had all dissapeared :eek:

Nice Job Mate


Looking great mate, a set of chrome MTX's would look pretty sweet I reckon.
Loving those forks!

They are Stratos S8's, US based company..8" of travel and fully adjustable..Really well made, everything on them is CNC'd..I have a few contacts in the motorcycling world and had a "mate of a mate of a mate" get me some custom Ohlins cartridges for the forks, as far as I know, it was a one off for Ohlins..

The bike still looks prime, I have purposely kept everything anodised for that reason..

Thanks for the positive feedback guys..
