Yep, I love their stuff. Some of their Hinckley Bonnie cafe racers are very nicely proportioned. Good to see, looking at the website, that they make use of 'fibber glass'. F***ing Liars.

... well, not just the Bonnies (having looked again), lots of good stuff there.

merde... I want every single one of the bikes on their site. If only to change to two-letter logo blemishing the tanks.

How can this much elegance come from one hand? staggering

It's thanks to Monsieur Jean-Fran├žois 'VD' Vicente, there was a major SR500 (and converted XT) revival in France, starting in the 90s, that is still shakin' today.

VD. Venereal Disease. The clap. The name for general sexual transmitted diseases before they invented the term sexually transmitted disease. G
