The other NOS - New Old School

Kiwi ex-racer and all round legend Graeme Crosby has turned his talents to manufacturing NOS - New Old School - bikes.

Here is his take on the mighty Z1, modernized. These pictures are courtesy of BikeExif, a NZ outfit, local to where Croz is now modernising classic kit.

USD forks, petal disks, contemporary 4:1...
 
 
Adjustable billet levers
 
 
The stance is muscular and very Z
 
 
Love the twin shock rear, not as sure about mags versus spokes. No doubt there are weight and performance considerations playing against spokes.
 
 
So are we looking at the next logical evolution of  non-factory, customised bikes?
 
This does promise contemporary performance and handling in an aesthetic package that won't date like the latest XYZ1000. I wonder how many similar builds are in progress and will break cover in the comings months.
