    I read on article on that build a while back. I was toying with the idea of taking a wrecked XR1200 I have in the garage, and swapping the parts into a frame to match the Lotus. After I saw someone else had already done it I lost interest.
    I remember seeing a picture of what they did to their frame to get the steering head extended. Looked like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Here's one of the original articles on the 'copy'- Smoked Garage Lotus C0-1 Bronco ~ Return of the Cafe Racers

    The lotus frame looks fairly well designed-

    Putting an air cooled engine inside a Lotus style body is a recipe for seizure.....or fire....or both.
