Now I'd like to see that!


No probs mate i will dig it out for you.




Uno Speedo, sorry for the delay, here are some of my images for you.

(To be honest, Given the collaboration between the Formula and Roberts companies i feel all the collective info and images would justify its own thread really.)

Some images of the very fast lady racer aboard the Formula, and the images from Roberts of the F1 Carbon Jig for the DB steel tail.

Enjoy.

Interesting photo's Carl, but I'm a bit confused, as the pictures of the part carbon frame and the DB appear to be recent.

The DB shown in the pictures bears more than a passing resemblance to the one on display at Bespoked in April.

Am I wide of the mark, or are those photo's you took at Chas' workshop?

No you are spot on, Roberts Fabricated the rear ends for the Formula F1 projects. The Images are from the Chas Roberts Frame shop and Jigs.

The images with DB frame were taken against the only availiable DB to hand, to demonstrate the DB tail for you. (see first Image and rear end of the DB tail in Deb Murrells race bike pic, when she decided to concentrate purely on XC and not DH as she had done in previous years)

Very cool photos, thanks. First time I've seen those, I must get my F1 photos posted. I plan to get an F1 thread running one of these days...
