The bike is how I bought it aside from replacing the tired tyres, grips and the modern saddle.

That is Gorgeous, the carbon looks in remarkable shape for its year.

Did Roberts fabricate the rear end of this one, or did he only do the wishbone rear ends...?

The condition you have kept it in is amazing, and a real credit to you.

Very Impressive... 8)

Tom Walkinshaw was the man behind the Jaguar Group C / Le Mans racing team. He also was involved (may still be) with Donnington race circuit.

Sadly died a few years back. Pretty much did everything motorsport wise in some shape or form.

Oh yeah, awesome bike, probably my 'unicorn'.
