Dave Pearce Bows Out
After a huge amount of thought over the weekend I have decided to end my Involvement in the project. There are a myriad of reasons some of which are
out of my control. I wish you well and will remain willing to offer an opinion.
Sorry but this decision is final.
There were a number of tasks left unfinished. First among these was the making of a swing arm spindle which we entrusted to BSD Performance. When the swingarm was tightened for the first time, nothing lined up. The rear wheel was out of line both laterally and vertically.
We turned to Harris Performance for help in putting the frame right.
In addition to correcting the misalignment, they added strength to areas of the frame and swingarm which they felt to be essential. Other, more minor but nevertheless crucial errors were also rectified.
When asked about the errors, Dave refused to answer specific questions and defended his position by claiming that the frame was only a prototype.
For the record, he charged us £8,500 for the work he did.
Sadly, the relationship ended on a sour note, which is a cause for regret.
