Looking forward to seeing that Sonic built up Carl.


Cheers Roly.

Would be nice to stay as it is, but it needs refurbing cosmetically. Just waiting for Helmut to come back with Ral colours and images of colour options that were of the time.

He has mentioned a two colour fade with the embossed sonic seat stay in the contrasting colour, I doubt it will see any spray guns this side of Christmas, but there are a few nice projects waiting for a little Christmas spanner time.

Ha ha, all I have from Sonic is one unused pantographed seatstay cap! Glad Helmut is able and willing to help, will the frame work size-wise with the bar/stem combo too?

Thankfully Dave "baggy pants" is good friends with him, Dave raced for me when he was a junior and that's how it came about, otherwise I might not have been having so much luck, the One piece bar and stem combo will need alteration for sure, as a rider it will be for Em I think, a tad small for me.

heading out on Sandy Lane (where it meets Kirby Lane)...i do a regular loop round Burrough on the Hill with a couple of mates. Usually 1 night ride and then Sunday morning !

It was brass monkey this Sunday, when i took this one, but it was great to be out at that time of the morning (8ish...).
