Not a GW but I like this a LOT. And to your question, a close up of leading link suspension. Somewhat commonplace in the UK?

V12...! Really, indeed very nice.
Lots of good pics on this ebay link. Looks like the triple tree, the front wheel shaft and the holders for the calipers are OEM...
I just might look into making one based on the original geometry and the trail I am getting now with my modified triple tree...

Just a tough, Thanks CT1500

Most leading link front ends are from the UK.

Wingdings,
I think that not so long ago you posted another post with the same idea. There was quite a few pictures of what people had done to their 1500 rather then keep it OEM... Can’t find it. It may have not been your post, but I would love to find the link again. If you know which one I am talking about could you repost the link? Would sure love to find it... Cheers!
