Thanks for the info Carl, rest assured, IF I did know where it was, you'd be the first to know :D

I'll drop UNO Speedo a PM in the morning as see if he has any additional info he could share on the thread.

If it is the original chassis then I can't believe it. I will put my heart and sole into bringing this bike back to its former glory! 8)

For 22 years old, it's amazing in the flesh and the workmanship is first class...

Brilliant links Carl, thank you.

I remember seeing the first one not that long ago - I did love that show... Brings back some great memories.

Quick question reference rider numbers - would they always have the same numbers or did change per event?

Sorry, if its a silly question :oops:

Good work Gio! That was a bit of a bargain I think.

Looks like its had an easy life too - great to see it's in safe hands looking forward to seeing it finished.

Thanks Adrian - I hope so!

I thinks it's been very well looked after so after a bit of cleaning and polishing it should look a hundred times better - that's the plan anyway!!

Dope!

Double check that BB area, one of mine split at the BB location and I had a slither of carbon applied over the split to avoid any further stress.
