Busted! Yeah that's me!

I've had it a while,

A Prestige Explosif was a teenage dream, the build constantly evolves, you think it's finished.....

Then! Oooh That'll look good on that!

More money! Oh well !

I love playing with bikes!

I had a '93 (fluted) with RC35's back in the mid 90's when i was 16 or so. Always been a fave and I bought another from here a couple of years ago. Too small unfortunately so it moved on but I always get excited when one pops up for sale!
One day.....

Yours looks ace!
