i'm really happy with the explosif at the mo, i know it's no where near original but at the moment i like the ride and that is more important.

i nicked the xtr sti's and brakes and wheels from it for the E3 build, then stuck in the spinergy wheels (which i love the ride of) and used the v brakes as this bike is the only retro machine i have that doesn't have the canti hanger built into the frame which means i can use v's without having the unsightly unused canti hanger :lol: then i stuck in a NOS x-lite post and a NOS syncros stem with a little more rise and slightly shorter which makes it more comfortable but still feeling racey.

gonna try and get out in the next 2 days aswel 8)

so today i met up with makster at around 2pm and headed for the purbeck hills, the boy was flying . . . . i wasn't!!! :lol:

the hills . . . . the sand . . . . i can think of more excuses for my pitiful level of fitness/performance but then it would all come back to the fact that i was just slow!!! :lol:

great ride though, we talked bikes, rides, poss future rides and that mustang thread!!! :lol: in one of these pics you will see makster walking towards the camera, this was when he was checking out a bike to confirm wheher or not it was a raleigh activator so we could post it on the mustang thread . . . unfortunately it was a "pulse" something or other! :lol:

today i went for a short ride around brockenhurst towards lyndhurst and back, only about an hour and a half with picture stops etc but i just wanted a spin before i start a nightshift. stopped by the ferrari and maserati garage.

was riding the aluminium O, haven't ridden it in ages but i thought it deserved an outing. :D
