    I am the proud owner of a hand built custom kelvin franks 125 road
    race motorcycle,built sometime in the early 80's.I know that 3 of
    these were built in the USA,with mine being the first of these.It was
    brought to Australia when Kelvin returned here to live.Kelvin was
    associated with Honda R&D in the USA. The bike is fully hand
    built,with a box section alloy chassis and milled triple
    clamps,rearset pegs,and box section swingarm.It has USD marzochi
    and 3 spoke Marchesini magnesium wheels.It was originally based on an
    Aprilia design with a rotax 125cc engine fitted,all of the fibre
    is also custom made(fairing,side covers,seat).The brakes are fully
    floating Brembo discs and calipers and the fuel cap has the cagiva
    elephant logo on it.This bike was also featured in an unknown
    motorcycle at sometime in the 80's.I am searching for any information
    about the other 2 bikes built by Kelvin or anything related on this
