    While not a definitive way to tell but the forks on this one look the same as US/Canada version. But I have heard the fenders are the way to tell along with taillight.

    Hi Alex. Where are you in Germany? I will be in Berlin next week for 2 weeks.
    ​Too many bikes, not enough ride days.

    If you push down on big gear it turns little one which in turn, turns sprocket which pulls chain which would be connected to tension spring in place of string............
    ........schimple.

    That's super neat. When are you going to start selling those wheels? Hehe

    Are you going to refine the tank badges?

    Looks great, that seat is amazing - might be a little cold on your cheeks living in Germany though!
