Now all you need is a nice, shiny milled bottom yolk from Stephan.
Na, what he needs is an Aprilia front end :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :thumbup:

I'm glad they turned up eventually, not something you can easily replace. They look the dog's,

True that :)

Not only it looks better, front end is working much better too, as oem steel triples are the weakest part of whole front suspension. That is why new upside down forks are feeling generally better over std ones, it always comes with better triples.

Rob, that blue bike changes spec more often than you change your soiled y fronts ;)

Is going to look good, but it already did :lol:

And the lads are right about the bottom yoke, it's a big weakness in the stock bike

I guess I am currently in the VTR gods favor as the box showed up just now, about a week early :thumbup:

ok boys sit down with a coffee and let me bore you//

these spondons, the 6 as they started out as.... iv spent over a year digging, and talking to everybody i can. and some who maybe didnt wana share the info....

but i wanted to know the history of my bike. i didnt want anybody to be able to say, baldrocks thats not the real deal...well it is,at least now I know it is... :clap: iv been down some blind alleys and chased bikes that had nothing to do with mine...

its been a bike that was never raced. its been deve heals bike.its been rogers sons bike, its been a copy ,its been mike edwards bike. :crazy:

very long story short. my bike came to Ireland. the motor blew up and it ended up rebuilt into a street fighter... complete baldrocks that turned out to be.. iv spoken to the owner of said street fighter. he confirmed that as baldrocks as he bought the fighter in london with his mori motor already in it. :silent: still with me?

then a chance fone call from the man who actaully owned my bike, the guy who bought it from Revolution racing all those years ago.

he then told me the proper story, first hand from the horses mourh not second hand.. i then checked that story out with Roger who sold the bike to him, and it all checked out..

so. im only dealing with my bike, i have also found out a lot of interesting stuff about the other bikes but thats for there owners to know and not for me to go spilling my guts about.. :thumbup: .

its taken 14 months or so but im like a dog with a bone, i wouldnt let go until i found out..from chassis numbers and the PB2 markings (fuk thats another story all of it own) and the fact mines marked as an HUK bike in its paperwork i can at last say.

i got myself Mike (spike) Edwards ex race bike. :thumbup: .
it doesnt have his motor but has the motor i found last summer, a stage two. motors come and go it was always about the chassis. and after riding mine if its not fast enough, either its major baldrocks being talked or you really need to ride it first lol..

theres a few we bits and bobs missing of mine chassis wise, but that will be sorted next week :thumbup: :thumbup:


Ahmen......done at last...

next
