Mule Arctic Monkey

This bike has been kicking around the internet a while, but it's a great example. This Mule development mule was sold to Arctic Monkeys drummer, Matt Helder.
It has many of the Mule trademarks. Mule triple clamps; Fireblade 954 forks; Works Performance shocks; Mule seat and tail; Kosman front hub and a Red Devil brake caliper (I'd never heard of them, Red Devil specialise in car brakes); 904 big-bore, exhaust; modified stock carbs. It's running on 19s with race tyres, unusual for Mule, he fits 18s more often.
The bike also has the clever lower frame rails that contain oil and do away with the need for an oil cooler. This modification was developed for the Streetmaster (read all about that incredible Bonnie in Sideburn 8). G
