Lovely bit of history there, LGF. My Dave Yates is made of CromOr tubing - it's a lovely ride :).

That is very unique. Doesn't look like a giant gate or slack angled, long wheel-based machine you expect from the period :)

Weird thing was, I knew it would be mine when as soon as I laid eyes on it. Even weirder, I hated the ride while it still belonged to somebody else. As soon as I rebuilt it and adjusted angles, it fits like a glove.

Spooky....

Its a rider as soon as I can get it ready, I dont want to waste any more time building junk. My sig now looks pretty cool in a who's who of designs and manufacturers. Once they are finished, I want to do a spot of riding here and there.

Balls to modern full suspension.

What year (serial no.)? Talking with Mr Powell, they can go back as far as 1985 - which, frankly, is amazing...
