    I like playing dress up and pretend too.

    Nice enough looking thing with absolutely no model heritage (the name zephyr means "warm, damp, wind" which about sums up the "wet fart" bike it was a label for) and it isn't eligible to race in any class of note.

    I wonder how long he spends fucking around with the endurance quick filler at the gas station every time he fills it up.

    At least it looks pretty and probably goes bloody well too.

    Did you ever notice they don't report the curb weight of the finished machines. Looks way too heavy for me to throw around maybe one of you really, really big fukers can ride it and try to keep up.

    I like it, a lot.
    they missed out on bracing the frame. A moriwaki bike would have some bracing.
    And the toggle switch on the triple is cheesy.
    Rear shocks stock or cheap knock offs?

    Speaking of which, since moriwaki is still a company that is alive and well, I wonder what they think about DNA custom using their logo on this bike?

    somehow to me the moriwaki bike looks more bolt on of various parts they sell than the DNA custom bike.

    A bike with the best of both would be a looker. But still too fat to be a real racer.

    yeah, i got nothing bad to say about that one at all. Sounds like a decent motor and upgrades in all the right areas. Way better than what you usually see on that site. Did the article say they build this in India? In the land of 125cc turds i bet this thing is King!
