10. Spondon SRX-6


This is what I wanted my old SRX-6 to be once upon a time: Your basic overbored, Carrillo-rodded, twin smoothbore-carbureted Single, producing 71 horsepower and reportedly (in Performance Bikes) capable of 148 mph on a cold day in England. The handmade Spondon frame (with adjustable offset) was as cool as it got at the time, the TZ250 running gear probably still is, the tank’s aluminium, of course, and the whole thing’s supposed to weigh 275 pounds. A gruff little beast from a time when Sound of Singles was kind of a big deal.

    “I really don’t know where he finds the time, but Red says this one will be completed in time for the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show in December, along with two other bikes.”

    Uh, the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show is in November this year.

  • I had a great time visiting Redpath’s shop, just amazing the stuff he has packed in there.
