A severe case of brittle bones, osterporosis, has changed my plan to go vintage racing in my retirement, so I'm planning to move a truckload of parts that I'll never use. I don't know what the stuff is worth, nothing comparable on Ebay recently, but I am interested in Ducati single and twin bevel street bikes, so I may find someone with an interesting trade.
The frame was made by Spondon and sold by Steve Wynne/Sports Motorcycles- it was raced by Kevin Erion with an F1 lower end that he grafted Honda 4valve heads onto- I have quite a bit of literature and history of the bike.
I have 1 set of brand new, NOS, Marvic 18" magnesium wheels, and another set of used Marvic wheels- lots of rotors.
I'll add pictures of forks and engine parts later- have several M1Rs, some NOS, and lots of F1 engines/parts.
You can email me directly at: rskallerud@sio.midco.net- I'll email a phone number so we can talk.
Rick

Hello Rick, sorry to hear of your problem. A suggestion, build the bike and get one of the many hot young riders on it. It won't be the same as riding it yourself but close. Wish you the best with whatever decision you make. Graeme

Boy, I heartily agree with Graeme's suggestion. I have had the time of my life and met my best friends doing exactly that.

I did consider that, but so much of my shop space is consumed with parts I'll never use that there's no room for something that I could enjoy- would rather find something smaller.

The Spondon frame and belt parts were traded to another member of the forum- I'll let him decide when and where to 'unveil' it. I'm certain it will return to a racetrack, where it belongs.
