new addition this week folks.........

always fancied the aquafade and harlequin yo eddy's since first seeing them in MBUK many moons ago.

the actual one i lusted after in that magazine as a school kid will soon be here.......dave hemmings no less.

obviously there is still some discussions going on about it, but its meant to be his actual frame.

if it is, superb, if not, then its still a worthy addition.

i need pics and part lists if anyone can help out. want it to be like it was back in the magazine, just with a BOI fork and without crud catchers and DCD though.

Well well. Did Tintin decide against?

Look forward to seeing this. Surely the DCD is a pre-requisite though?!?

Nice one rich.

I guess the tyre logic was down to satisfying sponsors

Blue on one side - Green on the other.... Harlequin

Would it be rude to offer my left arm should you ever decide to move this one on?
