    I'm not a big fan of renthal bars, so I think this will be "stock" looking :)

    Thanks :)

    You need a Runner rear disk with "back plate" (Hub?)(I don't know the correct word)
    And a caliper and brake pump on the steering bar of course :)

    yeah bikes always turn out nice when they arent rushed.. i would love to 172 to my bike ( gilera ice ) just finding it impossible to find a 125/172 engine for a decent price, also love the italjets.. my mate has a italjet 70cc its a crazy fast bike.. but the front swing arm looks like its gona give way ahaa
