    Anyway--I unveiled the 851 at Barber Vintage Fest this past weekend. Was fortunate that the hurricane stayed well east of Alabama.

    Julia Orlandi and Paul's two sons flew out from California. It was a terrific weekend, all-around.

    I also brought an NCR Milona to the track for Moto Corse (Chris Boy).

    The "backup plans" have arrived.

    I picked up a used Ohlins shock, which I gave a little scrub in the ultrasonic cleaner last night. If Ohlins USA can't find me something a bit more special, I'll rebuild this one.

    Then I got a set of Marvic magnesiums which I will refurbish with fresh conversion coat and powder. When I'm risking my life at the track I'll stick to the newer 5 spokes, but for display and general use I think these period correct 3-spoke in white will look the part.

    So I brought the show wheels (3 spoke Marvics) to the powdercoater today but I'm having second thoughts about the white. I've been seeing a lot of Polen 851 pics with black wheels.

    Votes?

    I decided to go with black. Haven't picked them up yet though.

    In other news, the bike was dyno tuned today! Unfortunately no video or dyno sheet yet, but I do know the peak power number...

    Picked up the Marvics today.

    The only thing I know is the peak hp. I should get a dyno sheet Monday.
