Sweet as! Never seen one in blck before; is it an original paint job?

Is that an old Celica in the background? 8)


Cheers! Its actually black anodising, originally forks and swingarm matched with the silver anodising on Mz XC400s.
1993 models were light blue ano main tubes, 1994 was black. in bright sunlight it looks dark blue.

It's a 1984 Celica supra with a 3 litre turbo transplant - blood, sweat and tears gone into that!

My fave era for Supra's and Celica's. They just dont make 'em like they used to!

What BHP is that then?

Retrocar take-over!

Err, when the engine isn't broken like now, it ranges from 250-280+ bhp depending on where I set the boost controller.
280bhp boost = 2 x broken engines :oops:

The weather is crap, its dark even earlier and I'm recovering from the dreaded H1N1.

So... here are some new pictures of my beloved Dual Response

I managed to score some re-issue smoke dart 2.1s on the bay and I got a huge 50t pace ring for peanuts.

I've also got some 2.1 IRC amber walls on the way which I'm going to try on next week, very excited about this as I've had nothing but black tyres for the last 10 years and to be honest I'm sick of 'em :cry:

Can't wait to get out and ride now :D :D :D
