MBK Booster Original

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Bought this as a paddock bike when I was racing UK Endurance, and to learn how to wheelie properly (which I never did manage…). Upgraded it with posh Paioli forks and a 70cc big bore kit among other bits.

Nice and shiny in its final guise, just before selling it.
