This machine was built by me as a project with the intention of entering classic trials but has never been trialled since completion due to recurrence of old injury. It is not suitable for road use and is certainly not a "Field Bike". I have no documents but will provide a bill of sale to the winning bidder.

Inspection is welcome before end of bidding, and a full history of the build and expenditure is availabe at www.formulaonesidecar.co.uk & Ebay
