My name is martin and i live in the eastern region of austria. I´am into classic bikes since ~15years. Started with streetbike restauration like RD500, RG500, Kawasaki H1 500, NS400R, Ossa Yankee 500, ... and so on. For some years i also owned a VDue. Then i got bored of our "local racing control" (police) and switched to racing bikes. My first project was a GSX1100 from 1982. As i bought the bike there were already spondon brakes on it. So i got a bit more into the spondon stuff. The GSX kept its original frame, but all unnessecary sctions were cut out and it was stiffend with very light "reynolds tubes". The engine was complety rebuilt and now it produces 121PS and 120Nm on the rear wheel.
My trackday bike is a TZ250. Frame from 1995-1996 and 4TW engine. The engine was modified with roll cylinders to 360cc. It was ridden this year but there are still some modifications i want to do.
Then i stumbeld over a completely rubbish YB3 chassis -> my next project.
And what brought me here is a spondon chassis for a rotax 256 engine.
Maybe someone can help me with the frame number: SPE-RX8/A/254

crusty: Hi Lads I'v got a frame here that I'd like to get some info on it's a steel cradle frame that was built in 1979 I believe, the frame number is SPE/750F1/16 which is stamped on a small plate brazed on to one of the tubes close to the headstock. Thanks Mike.

bigelsy: I have obtained a Spondon Hooligan by hook or by crook. (Long Story) I am trying to find a home for it as I do not have the time or facility to do it justice. Is there anyone on here that can give me some guidance to ensure it goes to the right owner.
