The body of this Leggero is built from carbon fiber with splashes of paint "to add some life". The frame is built with light weight aircraft steel tubing and the suspension components are fully adjustable Showa units.Check out the rest of Walt's work on his website and I'm sure you'll see what I see, which is the hand of an artist at work.
