No thats just brakes posts of Pace forks.

Most sports racing cars were/are right hand drive to make the best advantage of clockwise direction race tracks (ie Spa, Le Man etc) ;)

Nice. Why can't a rider be a BOTM? Surely it has more character :?
As for tyre logos and lining them up, just makes finding punctures easier :wink:

Just noticed that your front hub is in upside down. I'd sort that before you ride it very far. :wink:

Probably was, the wheels were only pushed in for those shots, the rear needs centering as it rubs on the blocks too....just wanted some quick pix to post up here before it got dark :oops: :oops:

It's getting a proper outing tomorrow, I'm going out round Rowney Warren with Jango and Rekiborter after work :shock: :shock: :shock:

(methinks I'm gonna get my ass whipped :shock: :lol: )
