My fault Pete. If I'd read the whole thread properly I would've understood.

I've got to stop doing that. (..."must read properly...") :lol:

250g! that would cover the manual for the forks and the original 1993 bill of sale (this was a pricy little number back then when the $ was doing well!) that packed in the box. Admittedly the front brake cable is quite long, so that may have bumped the weight up a bit

forks gotta be 5lb? 96 judy sls were 3.6lb & the crown & upper on the mtn cycles were miles bigger. massive pro-stop rotor gotta be 1/3lb by itself.
so boxed whl, fork & brake 12lb?

higher than a 12.... no.... lower than an ace.... :lol:

If my memory is right, the first and only time I've seen these, is at the malvern 'bomb-hole' donkey years ago, when Darren Tapp flashed past on a GT with Disc Drive as well, that rig sure made people stare!
I gazed at the concourse area with a touch of envy!

14ib of pure aluminium (and cardboard and bubblewrap!), But then that is a wheel, an f***off big brake and a fork. It does look amazing though!
