Al'turn'ative Tuesday


Very clever alternative front-end applied to a Guzzi that reminds me of the Honda NAS.  Click on the lower right photo to see the use of a telescopic portion to this front-end in conjunction with the much larger, telescoping unit centered in the steering neck.

I dig your new feature.
Non tele- front ends are cool in a form after function kind of way.

I think they remind us (me) that bikes don't all have to have the same architecture...and they (usually)look badass.

Thanks Coho....

Alternative front suspension topics are fascinating...not just the engineering behind them, but the history & sociology that have played roles in keeping them from reaching market success.

Meanwhile, the teles have been given the time to just get better and better.
