Gaitors have gone out of fashion over the last few years which is a pity because they are so damn effective. They prevent pitted forks.
I also like extended front mud guards - they stop muck from being flung up on the engine.
Remember the old MZ's with their rubber enclosed chain? It never looked very good but wow did it protect the chain! It was a superb idea that was never taken up by the Japs...
Those were the days.... aaahhhh.
These days it's all about being minimal.
Very Nice looking early XT6E Min. Nice examples like this are getting pretty rare. Stop lurking and join the XT6 club. You know it makes sense....
