below is my prototype F1 norton frame p55004 one of 4 spondon made, spondon made 2 no 55004 frames, the first had a 24 degree headstock and was too steep for the road and tank slaped on the no hands test so a second frame was made the same as 003 and 005 with a 25 degree head angel. ( note p55001 and 2 were engines only with no frames made).
I have a swinging arm as well as 2 1990 Rcw spondon race swinging arms so could make it in to a 1990 rcw F1 race rep of the type of bike we all wanted. I do have a 89 Rcw twin shock sub frame but this dose not fit the road frames but it will give me the geometary to have on made.
Progect 2 a Duckhams Qxr norton
I may have missed the boat hear, i did speek with stuart tiller about a duckhams twinshock chassis tripple beam as i had ammased a selection of ex works stuff, since the picture i now have forks, brakes ect. We got as far as agreeing a price but it would have t wait till i had finished the other bikes sadley time progressed and i missed the boat.
I do have a coupe of possibilitys, Brian needs frames and the nrv used the same jig, ask Gavin he could use my other stuff to set a jig up or buy a secon hadn frae of very similar dimentions?

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.
