would like nothing better than to fly over and see some great machines, but so so busy and a dose of man flu. Shall eagerly wait for your post show report and photos to drool over.

Really lovely looking bike. Is the two stroke tank integral with the fuel tank? That looks really neat. Who's the frame builder? Good luck with the build-can't wait to see it finished, especially with the old style two stroke ring-ding coming from a classic style Bimota,

Cheers, MikeJ

I have some new pictures to share. Today I married the frame and the engine - it is so easy with this frame, you just lift the engine into place from below.

A quick update after a while - bodywork is now painted, one set of JEMCO pipes already on stock but way too loud for public roads, so I have ordered a second set and will modify them with a larger silencer portion and diffusion / absorption portion.

Please dont cruzify me for building this fake BIMOTA, trust me I much more preferred to own an original one - of course not one of the unaffordable and unavaialble HB1, but a KB1, KB2, SB1 etc...
So meanwhile I have my lookalike

WOW Wolfgangh,

your bike is a work of art, what a beautiful tribute to old school Bimota's.. with a two-stroke twist...

I hope you enjoy it for decades to come, congratulations on building your dream bike.

If I had a KB1 or KB2...I'd happily swap it for your GST750 HB1 inspired replica...that is a lovely bike you have there...no purists or crucifixions on here....

Absolutely not! The fact that someone is willing to take the time out of their life to pay tribute to a Bimota is something that we as the fans are always grateful for! Merry Christmas!

My approach was different to the beautiful HB1 replica of Artracing. I tried to use period correct parts and technology only, only tribute to modern tech is an ultra-small OLED instrument in the upper triple tree and a LiFePo4 battery hidden in the housing of a standard lead acid battery. All suspension parts, brakes, wheels, engine parts are from the 70s or 80s. Handlebars, rearsets and fuel cap are genuine BIMOTA parts; other parts are as close as possible copies.

Today was a sunny day, took the chance to escape the christmas family meeting for a short while to take more pictures. I am overwhelmed by your positive feedback, it is worth a lot to me since you guys own some of the most exclusive, perfectioned motorcycles ever made.
