Featured at the 2013 Ton Up exhibit in Sturgis, South Dakota (co-curated by Michael Lichter and Paul De’Orleans), this “XLMPH” is looking for a new owner.

This bike features a hand built aluminum body along with a redesigned monoshock chassis with a Ohlins unit in the back and a forward mounted oil tank at the downtubes. Unfortunately, it still needs some work – brackets, fuel bladder, wiring, and plumbing. The bike has spent the last couple of years in a shop on display, consider it ‘essentially complete’ but not turnkey…in other words, a huge tease! Hope the next owner gets it on the road soon.
