I am not a professional bike builder, just someone with a passion for a bike that is quick, goes around corners and is a bit different. All the work has been done by me except for 6 things: Powder coating (La Carousel) Crank case boring, head skim(Galtec Precision Engineering) Welding of the frame (John Elliott) Thread cutting on the breather fittings (Kevin Sanders) Front wheel re spoke (Hagon) Everything else has been made with hand tools in my shed.
