Not with the seating position, I the Monza frame rails and sets’ from Reboot in Normandy. They cost a lot and originally red, so I had them blasted and powder coated to the frame. This also I needed to replace the header so got those from Keihan,

Result is a much better position and it looks miles exhausts are slightly upswept extra ground clearance. if you it I think you’re looking at the type of bike!
