Excellent work there Carl, your attention to detail is simply amazing 8) you have certainly researched every single detail and imagine your scrap book collection to be immense 8)

Do you have any pics of the frame as you got it ? was it the same black and white or has Garry's paint man reproduced the detailing from pictures ?

Mighty impressive and another stunner for your getting larger collection 8)

I'm a huge fan of replica and tribute builds. That thing is super clean. Well done.

Right down to the same color zip ties on the crud catcher.
Candate for bike of the century. :)

It would seem the bar has been raised into pole vault territory...

...much more of this and you're going to need your own seperate heading in the index! 8)

I guess that BOTM sorted for this month then!!

Great work as always Carl - very nice indeed. Those specialised rims must have taken some finding.

Super special bike - I would love to know more about the build, where you found the frame, in what state etc etc....

One small point though if I may be so bold..... please sort the set up on those rear m734s - the straddle wire is too long I think.

That is a great tribute and you are a real credit to this site or bringing these legends back to life.

Cheers Gio, and thank you again for your help too, if not for your help, some of the peices wouldnt have been here to enable it to get finished, when it dawned on me on monday this week, that it was 17 years ago this month jason passed away, i pulled out all the stops to get it finished.
