Yeah either that or chuck it away.

Have to be honest though that's kinda part of the reason why I have dragged my heels with it, its been assembled and thrashed and now disassembled and awaiting paint, but I cant paint it with out accurate art work for the decals.

:facepalm:

Neil.

You wouldn't have a straight blade fork spare that would be suitable for a white spider frame do you...?

A track two fork would be good...? Any condition would be ok, I have to have framework carried out on this anyway...?

Again any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not strictly Uk made, but given what it is, worth placing on this thread.

One of three. This one might stay in Original paint and is now Awaiting O/E spec assembly.
