I'll wager it isn't. In that frame with those brakes suspension I bet it is one extremely easy to ride fast bike.

Just a lil prize at the end of the rainbow for the next guy that reads all the way through 19 pages .

I really am a fan of sorts having been acquainted with Trock , Truit , Branch over the years . I don't mean to say I know them but I sure spent a dollar or two .

I got real good at swaping clutch and gearbox . Otherwise I'm just another has been that never was , with one exception . 10.44 @ 133.xx ? sure , been there , done that , seen that . used the t-shirt for a baby wipe years ago . Sputhe just made the whole process lighter , smarter and faster . I'd be willing to bet it's no easier on clutch and greabox ...

Hey tnx for the forum

My Sputhe will be up for sale if any one is interested. I'm just not using it.
20 mile since built, built using mainly new parts, engine to all intents is new.
Over $24,000 spent on it, make me an offer. I'll deliver the bike to any sea port in the UK free of charge & assist with shipping. The bike has a UK Title (Registration Document) & is registered as "Historic" 1972.

"You may find that having is not so pleasing a thing as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true."

I too have found that once it is finished the desire to own it wanes . I hope the new owner not only appreciates the finished result but the process that brought it to life .
