Something that is unique
A Turner tandem based on a Burner V-2 with a DH rocker, built for Interbike 1997.
In the middle, towing a BOB trailer at Spring Polaris, 2000, in the Peak District*.
It was fitted with Velocity Aeroheat Deep V rims at this point because it kept putting flat spots into DH rims. These lasted really well, but the orange rims in all the other shots are tubeless. And yes, that is a suspension seatpost for added stoker cush.

And finally, on the chairlift at Fort William, ready to do the 2001 DH course:
All images should be clicky to flickr pages.
As displayed at Interbike 1997 it had Mr Dirt upside down forks, Magura HS11 brakes, Hugi rear wheel with DH rims, Titanium BBs.
It destroyed the rear wheel (flatted the rim, chewed the hub body to pieces) and the Magura HS-11s were pants - you could sinter the pads on a good descent.
It was refitted with early model Boxxers, which meant that we could fit Hope C2 calipers and big discs on Bulb hubs. The rear hub always runs a BOB trailer compatible skewer.
The BB spindles got bent hitting a log at a NEMBA downhill at Richmond, N.Yorks. It now runs sensible BBs. Spot singlespeed rings handle the timing chain.
The Alps 4R has chewed itself up internally and it now runs a Fox RP3.
Even if I still had the parts to rebuild it to show spec I wouldn't because it's more usable this way.
