Hi to all
Great day today Went to Thetford forest for the mutjack enduro. Its a tight cercuit about 5% is open the rest is trees
roots ruts and it cuts up rough, mostly sandy but with a few fist size flints to catch you out. The IT ran great and was still going strong at the end of the day, whitch is more than I can say for my self. I ran out of go on the last lap, this was my last event this year. The plan now is to strip it go through it and sort some niggles that need to be done. So onwards and upwards, thank you again for all the support and advice.

Rich.

Cheers,

Dave.

Hi Kev
Sorry for the delay replying I have been on nights and things get a bit hazy. Its a UFO back fender I think it came from
MD racing products, they have a range of vintage plastics. I had to modify it to get a fit but it has worked out
ok Hope this helps.

Rich.
I see the head light is a Acerbis ELBA, but what front fender do you use?

Hi Keny.
The front mud guard came from the same place as the back, this company does a hole load of vintage
looking stuff. I am not sure if the head light is easy to find though that one came from Irland a guy had it on Fleebay.
When I decided to race the IT I put the original plastics in my workshop loft for safe keeping. The white plastics seem to be
durable they have put up with a few knocks this year, and I can get them if I brake them  ::)

Thanks Rich, even as I did go on the web site I think yours is the ME08004 as yours has air vents at the back

Don?t want to be pointy, but just noticed the air vents
