have been away for a while hence no postings for ages. Have recently had some time to sort out 888 which now looks great with new transfers (thanks Nat!) and black wheels (i am one of the many who prefer them to gold). Jasper: hope the suspension part is of some use as a spare if nothing else- so sorry about long delay.
onto the subject of the thread:
for all those out there who love the pure race looks of the 888 corsas- and after much discussion with friends on the (controversial) subject of riding road legal race replicas on the road - i found an interesting website that confirms rules on motorbike MOTs. www.motuk.co.uk/mcmanual
it confirms that if not fitted (or if masked over) you do not need lights, direction indicators or even a brake light for your bike to pass an MOT and be road legal. your MOT would be issued with an advisory note recording that the bike can only be used in daylight.
i think that i am right in saying that www.ricambi-weiss.de
still produces 888 race fairings - has anyone had any dealings with them recently?
