hi all

Just came across this forum from Pantahheads.

Bikes: a few MVs (some who know me will laugh at this comment) and Ducatis of which one is a low mileage 1986 US spec F1 ex Japan in need of a complete cosmetic restoration (as is quite common with a few Japanese bikes) and another a TT2 replica (built by Steve Bridge, F1 Engineering New Zealand).

I'v had a thing for the F1 since having a ride on Steve Frew's, who also just joined, many years ago. It was a combination of the styling and the 'rawness' of the bike. This was confirmed on a trip aboard a low mileage F1 through part of the south island of New Zealad a few years ago where I was also fortunate enough to take a few other Italians for a spin (1980 900 SS Ducati, Laverda SFC 1000, 'Arturo' Magni Guzzi, Pantah 500, 851 tri-colour and 750 Sport MV)

The pics are the TT2 at Phillip Island on it's first 'serious' outing.

What he said!

Great to see another TT right where it belongs... Great ride isn't it? I was simply blown away the first time I raced Fran's.
