Re: THE IMP MAN

I've had three Imp outfits. We've currently got a 998cc Lynx.

Feel free to contact me with any question, I'll be happy to help if I can.

I build our engines, but get most of the bits from Rodwell Motorsport.

Surely, as Classic and Vintage bikes don't run slicks, we don't have to declare a race "Wet".

No declaration...........No requirement for lights!

Re: What would you do about THIS?

I've never had a problem with eBay in the past, but I don't sell that much. However with two out of the last three items I've sold, I appeared to have become a victim of extreme tw*tness.
