A can of green paint for the frame makes that much difference?

Oh it's only Australian dollars, that's ok then.

I do not fancy that at all

It will be shit to ride.

I have more sense than money.

Not even a good investment

Jay Leno tried one:

It started badly, it tailed off a little in the middle and the less said about the end the better, but apart from that it was excellent.

Yes, I like it. I watched the Jay Leno video a couple of days ago, before I saw this thread, and 1) want a space that big to park my (currently non-existing) bike collection 2) would have a VeeTwo in that collection.

Oh, I'm day dreaming again.

Looks like the frame is based on the 1000 Sport. Once you bin the Marzocci forks, and fit Showas, they handle really well.

No, it is a modified 1970s/80s bevel chassis. Theirs uses a Mike Hailwood replica frame, and I suspect it will be very nice to ride.
KTM 990 SMT
Ducati bevel
