Default MT-01 custom

Check this out.. dam fine use of a MT-01 engine If i had the money I'd send him my engine and have him build me one,with a seat the guys name is Shaun Wainford good write up on the net about the build can't get it to link, but he cut all the aluminum himself he even made the master cylinders and the air ride, check out the swing out lever that I'm guessing is for de-compression now that is custom.

That is sick. What's an MT? In this case it looks like it's built around a VRod, correct?

The MT-01 is built by Yamaha it's a roadstar 1700 motor tweaked a bit and in a street fighter type frame, not sold in US and it's not a v rod it's a mt-01 motor with everything else custom made one off stuff.

+1 and well engineered machine imho.

60ftgap .... if you look carefully you'll note that the foot controls are reversed on this custom bike. The shifter rod is running through the hollow swing arm pivot bolt and the rear brake & master cylinder (MC) are now located on the left hand side if i'm not mistaken

The MC is in full view as is the pedal and i believe there is a short stand pipe for the brake compound too

Also has a kick starter

You are correct sir! in the write up the dude that built the bike was in a bad car wreck and he had some pins a screws so things don't work so good, hence the swap. don"t think thats a kick starter

Now that you mention it I think I do remember reading about it. I dig the riding position as apposed to the cruiser position. Still looks like a Vrod frame though.
