    Africa Twin
    Hi all, On one of my parts hoarding trips I acquired an RD07 frame. Never needed a frame, but can't resist hoarding XRV parts. It needs blasted and powder-coated, but it seems in a pretty good overall shape. It came from a barn full of bike bits collected over years by a fellow parts hoarder...
