Awesome Cooley Rep Unveiled for 2010 Season!

Bike builder Mike Woodhead, owner of Extrutech, revealing his amazing winter project - the Wes Cooley replica Earlystock race bike.Mick, I cannot thank you and Nic Parry (from Fabweld) enough. Fantastic work!

In addition, a side shot showing the Cooley rep in all its glory. GS1000 tank was adapted to fit the GSX1100 frame and custom made seat unit provide the nice original lines. Mick & Nic had to chop off the entire rear sub frame and re-build/ weld to get the line right.

Not forgetting the new colour co-ordinated leathers and boots.

Rear shot showing twin Ohlins shocks and end can adapted from an R6. Rear swing arm is polished like a mirror. Mick & Nic had to intricately craft and route the pipes under the engine to maximise ground clearance.

The original bike - quite a change aye?!
