    Neat idea

    Not my cup of tea, but cool nonetheless. Much better than the Magpul Ronin.

    The caf racer spotlight has diminished quite a bit IMO, but metal work like that will always be sexy I like it a lot! and agree with you about the Ronin. Gotta love how the packaging of a Buell really lends itself to customizing

    The rim color/pulley choice looks awfully familiar

    My favorite Buell conversion is still the Lazareth from France. Gotta love a front monofork
    Their website no longer works, so hoping that they didn't go out of business. They made some beautiful customs.

    You probably ride a Cannondale too. LOL.

    That is a cool looking bike. I like that one better than the one I posted.

    HA! The mountain biker in you comes out again!

    I was never a fan of those Lefty forks. Too hard finding wheelsets that would fit. I suspect it continues to be a good looking marketing ploy from Cannondale.

    Maybe you engineers could chime in. A one sided fork just looks inherently weaker, with all that torque acting on the single wheel hub attachment. Though I suppose in the linear direction of compression/rebound it's more stable, especially as you don't have to worry about two fork legs remaining perfectly parallel to each other.

    If I'm not mistaken Bimota use a single sided fork at one time.

    Edit; wrong

    IMO, the Lefty's day in the sun has come and passed. The new Ocho version looks cool, but it looks like those are only spec'd on the lightweight XC bikes. The regular Lefty looks like it is done.

    The design is actually very similar to the strut assembly on a car or airplane.

    Wow check out that 8 pot brake caliper! Is that the ZTL3? Will it fit on my bike?
