Ges Gilbert wrote in with this exceptional Spondon framed Fireblade
Hi Steve, Here is my ’96 Spondon Fireblade, I wrote to you some time ago about it. I believe it to be only one of 25 frames ever made for the Fireblade engine by Spondon Engineering, Derbyshire, England. I’ve customised it with MV Agusta seat and RS Aprilia half fairing. It also has a GSXR1000 k6 front end held together by Gilles Adjustable Yokes and bars. Controls are Swedish ISR and front wheel is a Japanese Galespeed forged wheel with Galfer wave discs. Rear suspension is of course, Ohlins I hope you can feature on your website as there aren’t many Spondon Bikes shown. She handles like a dream and the paint work is what I think if HRC and Spondon ever got together for a grand prix or Moto2 bike. Cheers Ges.
