Having more miles on it then Louis and Clark, the front
end began life in the usual way, and with little idea it
would soon become a world traveler. Originating in
Colorado (Perse Performance), it was then shipped to PM
in Southern California. After spending a relaxing month
in the PM R&D Department, it caught a plane to Holland
for a prototype fitting of a unique internal brake line.
After a month abroad, and a healthy collection of
frequent flyer miles, it returned to PM. Soon after that
the fork tubes were sent to Race Tech in Corona, CA who
then shipped them to the East Coast for the black
coating. Over a month later, they returned and met up
with the bike in the palatial Performance Machine
Compound. Time to relax and enjoy being a show custom?
Not really. A poster shoot, a catalog cover shoot and
then hop on the PM semi for the Cinci and Indy shows.
After that, there's Daytona and then Sturgis... It must
be tough to be a front end.
