Many thanks to Adam Cecchini from California, clearly a man with great style and taste ;-). He's just sent us this. Take a look at his photo album too, there's some great shots there.
I’m enjoying checking out your DB1; looks like you’ve completed some incredible work!
I love those mufflers (I’ve owned a few sets over the years; they sound/look amazing) and those front calipers (you’ll see why below).
I’m hoping to see how the 851/888 swingarm is adapted to the rear suspension, if you get a chance.
I’m contacting you because we are working on similar projects!
I just got my DB1 on the road after working on it, on and off, for the last 5 years.
