All the words above, and this is my 250th post, how appropriate.

I still have an IT250J with fibre glass side panels and rear guard that Chris manufactured. I'm quite chuffed that his legacy lives on with so many of his products still out there. He was a true believer in keeping old new again. I was lucky enough to have a number of bevy's with Chris at  numerous  events. One to remember was the power test at Cooka one year that we all enjoyed but contravened all the rules . RIP Chris, your stories of camping and yabbies will remain.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Cheers, Chippy.

Chris, you '2nd's' Fibreglass panels will never be sold..they are perfect and will go up on the garage wall. Seeing your enthusiasm in all you did spurred us on to our own builds..A top bloke sorely missed..
Stand up you fool!

Indeed. I am more tempted to display the quality of his work in "the empire of dirt" than I am to fit them to a bike, in memory of a great craftsman, good friend and sadly lost fellow enthusiast.

I have white "2nds" for my wall hanger.
Gonna be as complete a dressed frame as I can assemble.
Frame was our brother Craig's...

Also have a perfect blue set in storage, waiting despatch to Greece.
I've not forgotten Fanis  :)
Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
