Just thinking about Lardmarc's MT - frame original SWM design so Italian modified by British then Americans
- engine Austrian - brake calipers, wiring connectors, switchgear Italian - headlamp surround, sidepanels American, - front shocks, rear shocks, CDI, tyres, bearings ??? Perhaps he should carry a United Nations flag
