Creator of various innovative designs including the 1993 Yamaha GTS1000, Parker started talking to Mission Motors in April 2009. Four months later, the Quad-Element chassis was born. “Basically, it’s a unit-construction design with an integral drive system,” Parker explains. A billet-aluminum head box bolts to steel-tube side frames, followed by a stressed-member power unit that carries the swingarm pivot. “I wanted to show off exactly what’s going on with the bike,” he adds.
