I spotted this thing last weekend, built by the same guy that built Eaglebeaks, Rowdy's and hopefully mine
. New owner is obviously riding the tits off it, was spotted down south last weekend as well as outside the Dwellingup pub where I had a long chat to the new owner. It really is a work of art, as said with height adjustable sidecar, car tyres on rear and same on sidecar, polished jerrycans on the back ( fuel range in excess of 700kms ). very nice bike.
If Toad says that it rides that well, then be assured that it does, Toad does know his chairs.
The builder is reknowned for his front ends and his work with GSX 14's.
After several head gaskets on My PD I've gone out and picked up a GSX in similar colour to this one ( same as Clancy's ) and now just waiting to get it in for the addition of my sidecar to the new tug.
Slade what was the MRA screen that you ordered, looked at the site and got all confused.
