    Once I figure out how to embed a photo I will get some pics up, in the meantime here's a link to my flickr - the T5 in various states of beings

    Cheers!

    The screen's gone now - I managed to swap it for a complete T5 top end. They look nice the drivers, but rattle about like buggery when riding and the angle on the screen sends a blast of wind right at my face. Good bit of 80s tat tho. I'm after a FAR one next as they're abit more streamlined, but they'll have to drop the prices a bit first... £135 for a bit of 20 odd year old plastic anyone ?!

    Yeah, I bought it as a full T5, but the engine pretty much fell apart a few weeks after I bought it, so spent another few weeks trying to sort it, gave up and put the P2 in it - I must say I do prefer P2s, not quite as hooligan as the T5, but more forgiving and easier to work with for the long hauls

    Yeah its pretty grunty low don, I've got a sito+ on it so that helps, but the jump between 3rd and 4th just robs all the power... It's getting kitted when I get some dosh together.

    Has anyone seen the new polini 210 kits in alloy?? I love you I've always prefered polini stuff as you get more grunt rather than mad top end, but they've been let down by shit cooling

    The only thing that puts us off tho is that it takes away the potential for rebores (and it'll no doubt cost an arm an a leg)

    Im not that impressed with the new polini kit
    you would think after 20 years there would be a bit of a redesign , yeah its ally but its no different
    The one ive had in my hand , the casting quality wasnt that great either.

    Nice scoot mate! I think it's good to see the younger generation on T5's, made a few of the older boys jealous. Wink
