now that's what I'm talking about, very nice indeed and some nice amberwall spesh ground controls would look a treat.

Why did the rear mech guard disappear, did folk realise that it wasn't needed or was it a weight thing?

John's Overburys (aka Brown Bullet) is very fast in the right hands as anyone at mayhem 2009 will never forget as pictured below :lol:

I was looking at this thread and realised it was woken up after 4 years in the vaults :wink:

Fast in Jeffy's hands, slow in my own.

Good fun for the odd blast but very much of it's era. No idea on head angle but either way the steering is lazy.
