May 2008 Monster of the Month

From Albie


I first joined UKMOC 4 1/2 years ago when I bought an M900 and then upgraded in December 04 to my red S4. It has served me well for 3 years with some nice parts fitted but I was wanting to upgrade to a single sider , and when one became available I snapped it up and a rebuild took place over the last 12 weeks to the finished article you see here unveiled in late April 08

I cannot sell my monster as its part of our family and my partner Caroline adores the bike and loves going on the back and refuses to want one of her own. So she is going to have money spent on her when it needs.

I hope to have hold of her for some years to come but my eldest daughter would like it.

Albie

Start Point!

Finished!

Hi Albie,

i came across this and was very impressed. i have an S4 myself and had spotted the front fairing before, but was unable to find one. can you tell me what its called? or where to look?

also, and this is a real newbie question! but does the seat cowl fit over the twin seat, or do you have to buy a single seat as well?

any help would be most welcome,
Dean.

It's a Road&Racing 'Alien' I believe, R&R are an Italian company that sadly no longer exists.

Its was made by RoadRacing Italy, now defunct stupidly rare and when you do find one expect to pay very silly money, having said that there is a chance I may part with one of mine not made a decision yet though.

I thought about fitting it to my not so like front headlight. I wonder what it would look like if you don't sell it on. It would be funny it coming home after 10 years since got the bike with it on.
