Thanks for the comments. I will get around to weighing the bike one of these days because people ask me how much does it weigh? The bike was designed to partially dismantle so I can transport in the rear of a Ford Territory. Recently took it from Windsor to a "show and shine" at Forster but could only manage an encouragement award.
