The wheels are a limited edition. Hand made by G. Potenza.
I bought the last set from the creator, Gianni in Hamburg, Germany.

I know, I asked him about a reproduction if they are so wanted, but he said they won't be produced anymore.
It's a limited edition... :P

But he did say, there will come a new version of the potenza wheels. But when and how many, is still a mystery....

Many thanks guys! ;)

Next steps will be the engine:

-oil cooler
-stage4

Interior will be the last step.


But, do you guys have any ideas of what I can do to power up my 1300cc carb engine?
I'm planning to install a stage 4, but before I do, I want to know if that's okay? Aren't there any better parts or something?
