Thanks for the comments both. I am looking to develop the bike as time progresses, so a 1000cc upgrade kit looks likely at some point. There are a couple of changes I can see straight away which I will have to make. Wider bars, and losing the headlamp fairing being the first ones. I have been told that I would enjoy some leading link forks too, but will wait until I can judge for myself first.
The ease of access to the chair may push me down the Ural clone route, but that’s still up for discussion with She Who Will Be Obeyed.
I’ve not had much luck finding commercially available sub-frames – is there somewhere you can suggest?
Cheers
