Yup, Tracy Neve it is, Oh, all of em!  :P
(But not the tart, coz that photo was taken seventies/eighties and she will now be as crumbly as me! :laugh:

Crumbly? Don't know about Tracy Neve but the bike is in lots of pieces, most of the wreckage is in north London but many bits have been lost. It snapped a camchain which caused a lot of collateral damage! This happened maybe 20 years ago. The owner dismantled the engine and dreamed about fixing it... Although I have not had any contact with him for many years now I strongly suspect that all he managed to achieve in the intervening years is to lose more bits! Whilst a part of me would very much like to try and acquire what remains of the bike there are very good reasons why I have not had any contact with him for 10 years or so. Anyways I strongly suspect he will not sell as he does not need the money (only son with wealthy parents) and more importantly he would no longer be depriving someone else the pleasure of building and using it.

Hands down Ed's Babe wins, I remember seeing Ed's bike in 2005 at Willow Springs.  The bike is magnificent.  Lance did a super job, workmanship is out standing, carbon fiber fairing.  All custom built for a special client.

Congratulations Ed a great bike 8). Plenty of people voting this month as well. Not sure if you have won before (probably featured 3 times now) but you are most welcome to tell us all about your bike and post more pics etc.

Hi
just spoken to No1 Spondon "Piero`s ride" owner (good mate of mine, UK East coast), after he made fantastic donation too my fundraising page.
Bike is fantastic as well and could be up for sale!!! Very reasonable price as well. I can tell you motor is "a good one" trying to keep up with him a few years ago.
PM me if you have interest and I can give you contact details (when I have a little more spare time) .
Ian

I know, I know, voting's closed but it's gotta be Ed's for me. I got to see it being built which makes it all the more special.
Ciao,
