You see it cannot be that good as it has long since been dismantled and gone to a new owner rebuilt and I think a new owner again after that.
It no longer exists.


Wadsy can't ride it as he is unable to, I bought it from him and sampled it's amazing ride but I have since passed it on to a UK bike collector as I didn't want to ride it into the ground - the paint job is so unusual and would probably never be replicated (especially as DL doesn't do bikes any more) and I didn't want to ruin it.

It's a lovely bike, it was an honour to own and ride it and it gets my vote every time. Everyone who has seen it has loved it - so light and very strong and an awesome paint finish.
