Lightning

 

Our first attempt at using this world reknown thumper as the basis for a design that is meant to distinguish itself from any other SR500. Taking cues from its namesake the English Electric Lightning, this coldwar inspired custom utilises a modified monoshock swingarm, shortened front and handmade tail unit to great effect.
