V7 Scrambler from Portugal

Spotted this on the excellent blog: http://www.theselfcenteredman.com - I think it's beautifully executed and maybe the best use of one of the 'new' V7 bikes I think I've seen so far. Thought it was a V50 at first, because of the older looking rocker covers, but guess they just slot right onto the new heads, anyone know for sure?

Anyway, I'd be happy to own this bike, though I'd stick another disc up front.

I thought the same thing - that it was an older bike. I wonder if the modern single disk is not better than the 70's twin setups? Still, as you say, another disk up front would be better both performance-wise and asthetically.

The single disc setup on the V7s works fine, but I've riddne some bikes where you can feel the forks flexing under braking - and I've always had a thing about single discs, especially on bikes like these rather than say big trailies Xts etc., just making the bike look unfinished. Another disc on this, and it would look the bollocks..
