Steve's Spondon Sportster

From Steve in the North West of England

Ok. Here goes...!

Spondon aluminium frame with oil tank in headstock and swingarm ( last frame done by
Sweary Bob before he 'retired' ! ) - based on the architecture of the Norton
'Featherbead' frame.
Ohlins shock.
Spondon tank.
2001 Sportster 883 motor bored to a 1200. ( with chain drive conversion )- running a
semi-auto Rekluse clutch.
One-off exhaust done by Asbo Engineering with Supertrapp cans.
Aprilia Mille forks.
Mille bottom yoke with ABM top yoke conversion and ProTaper bars.
One off Excell rims on Talon hubs with cush drive rear ( by Central Wheel ).
Braking front and rear rotors.
ISR radial front brake master cylinder.
Brembo rear.
Brembo calipers front and rear.
LSL headlight and mounting brackets.
Koso digital speedo.
Autogage tacho.
XR750 replica seatunit with pad.
One-off wiring .

Sorry about the long list Gary! I've an even longer list of family and mates to thank for help with the build. Couldn't have done it without them. I was hoping to have it on the road soon but I've got an issue with the chain catching the frame in a couple of places so it looks like I'll have to strip the bike back to the frame to get the job done ! Ah well - it's problems I hope you don't encounter with your build.
Anyway, good luck with that and thanks again for the support.
