Spooky, looks identical to a bike I was watching on Ebay, thinking of a project myself. At least this means I can delete it from my Watch list!

No problem at all, like you, I thought alot of the work had already been done. I probably would have wasted it, as what I am looking for is a basis for a track only Blade. I will look out for updates with interest. Good luck with the project.

The Bikestyle undertray cost 270 on it's own and there's about 500 worth of parts.

Yours for 350

Yes mate, just remove your subframe and bolt this one on.

The 400 got sold as the wankers at DVLA refused to register it unless it was Q plated and I also had to strip it down to have the frame re-stamped, long story.

While I'm waiting on Cabbies seat unit Smile had a play with the one I get with the bike, had a spare subframe knocking about so chopped it down to see how it would look, looks pretty good but as I'm not going for an underseat exhaust seems a bit of a waste of space so it's on e bay for sale.
