Re: Who?

Re: Are these any good?

They look like Koni, the adjuster doesn't adjust ride height it adjusts the spring tension.
The bottom loop doesn't look Windle, do you who made it?

Re: Thruxton Sunday.

Many thanks for the update.
From what I saw on the TV of the second incident, the outfit was by itself with rider & passenger out of the outfit & the outfit was flipped on it's side in the middle of the track, was it a mechanical failure or something similar?

Re: Terry Windle road going sidecar on ebay?

Hi Ian, just looking at the standard of engineering on what can be seen of the frame/forks, I dont think Terry would have put his name on it. I could be wrong?
