Maybe time for a change

I have been riding the same Supersport based DD bike since the start of the series in 2005, over that time it has developed from a basic 583 to a slightly more developed 620.
Back in 2004 when I purchased the SS I had never owned a Monster. in the 9 years since then I have owned several Monster and ride the road ones I currently own more than any of my other bikes.
At the end of 2011 I bought a incomplete but running 620 Monster off Steve Mason with the intention of turning it into a DD bike for myself.

Well at last the work has started with help from Dallas.
Below is a pic of the start of what will be project 1

Project 2 will be similar as in it will be another race bike, likely to be a 620 although it could just as easily be a 800

and Project 3 will be a road going Version with 1100 EVO engine, Ohlins forks, lightweight tank etc etc
