Well seeing as the VMCC won't be holding an event over the 2015 anniversary of Bobs passing it looks like I will have to try something different next year. Events are looking a bit thin on the ground, but I will try. If all fails I could arrange a camping/caravan/van weekend so that we can continue to celebrate all things Sweary Bob and Spondon. The venue would be near Daventry unless someone can suggest anywhere more central. Contact me on here or Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Cheers, Kyle
Got this invite from Mallory Park today, who fancies going again to celebrate the great man. I know last years event was a bit badly organised but all the lads on the stand had a good party (maybe not Jason). Let me know if you want to make a go of it and I will apply for the display space (more than 3m this time). Here's the email, Good afternoon and Happy New Year from Mallory Park!
Now that the New Year is upon us, we would like to invite your club to take a stand on Club Central at this years Mallory Bike Bonanza, taking place on the 10/11/12th July 2015. The Mallory Bike Bonanza is a gathering of thousands of classic motorcycles at one of the nation’s favourite tracks, Mallory Park Racing Circuit. We're offering your club the chance to have a stand at this event completely free of charge, along with complimentary admission tickets for those club members displaying motorcycles on the stand! You will find an application form for the event attached to this mail.
Last years event was a great success, and we’re looking to build on that to make this year even better. We would be delighted if you could make it and we look forward to receiving your completed application form back soon. Cheers, Kyle
Right lads, application sent off. I've applied for stand space and passes for 20 bikes. We should be getting the same area that we ended up with last year which was a really good position to watch the racing. Would all people how want to display a Spondon or even just frame or roller, get it in touch on the Facebook page and let me know. Cheers, Kyle
Right lads, stand application has gone in and been confirmed that we will be getting the same plot as last year. Just need more people with bikes or frames that they are willing to display and people that can help out with Banners, Gazebo/tent, BBQ, etc. Let me know what you can do. Cheers lads and possibly Lasses. Let's make this another great weekend talking all Spondon and the man himself. Kyle
Mallory passes have arrived. who wants to display a bike on the stand who hasn't already let me know on the Facebook group. We really need more bikes to justify the 20 free passes or we won't get an invite next year. Cheers lads.

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.

mathini: Hey all, a new member with questions regarding my newly acquired Spondon frame (orig purchase 2014). Can anyone tell me if the alloy frames have any coatings or anodize? I'd like to polish out some blem's, but don't want to create a maintenance nightmare
