I have just read this thread from the beginning, Omg I remember I was witness on the day your Maverick was ridden into the back of a car, by said careless friend who I still see regularly.
Just checked out your bikes in your sig, very nice..
Anyway hello from the past,
Hello old friend, it took a lot of bottle for him to admit to it, he must have been pretty scared, but as you know we remain friends to this day so all is good and it's a good story to re-tell in the context of this bike.
We'll all have to go out and ride during the summer (nothing to strenuous) as we had some epic times BITD. Looking back now we were right at the bleeding edge of this sport in the UK back then but we never knew it, we were just having fun.
Bet you'll be off now looking for a Tracker to restore, quite rare they are and well thought of too. I bet your's would still be pristine if you had it today, although we rode them quite hard it always got loved, washed and polished.
All the best mate,
