As per this Advert...and yes...its my bike

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1196493

Only 6 pictures allowed on those ads....so heres some more....I dont need a "thread" going on this...if your interested then Message me ...thanks...

Square bodied Mikuni Flat Slide carbs







With a little practice and confidence..all bodywork is off in less than 5 minutes...



Early Aluminium Fuel tank and crankcase breather tank....Titanium exhaust bandage to headers to reduce heat transfer to very tight fully enclosed fairings that these bikes have









New Brembo Gold series Clutch and front brake masters fitted plumbed into existing iconic Reservoir "bottles" fitted to the tops of the Marzocchi M1R forks....these have adjustable levers for reach...I was struggling with what I call "reverse dog leg" levers on the originals...making it a LONG reach and hard pull on both clutch and brake...I still have the originals of course



Marzocchi rear shock with remote click adjuster











































Exhausts have been opened up a little to help with the modified breathing and meatier carbs

If it were closer to me or if I could afford to buy it and ship it to Aus, id definitely ride it. Ive never ridden a DB1 but from all accounts the size of it would suit me to a tee Cool
