: The main Message Board forum has gone down once again, I'm really sorry about this, a more concrete solution is being looked into as the current freeware version of Ultimate Bulletin Board is proving very unstable. Sorry folks we'll do our best to fix it.
: Went to the Streefighters show at the Sheffield Arena (UK) at the weekend, thankfully the weather was good (Saturday), as usual fantastic bikes were on display, the amount of work gone into these bikes is just mind-boggling. Pictures will be in the Gallery shortly... A few goodies were to be found by the exhibitors, check out BSR-Aerotek for all your brake and oil line accessories etc. and other useful trick enhancements for your bike. If you're not one for doing burnouts, get yourself some 'Seal-a-Wheel' for preventing punctures, nomoreflattyres.com is the place for info, though most Italjet dealers should stock this now.
: A few more pics in the Gallery and in the Styling section you'll now find a guide for altering your number plate bracket. I've got a whole load of content lined up for the site in the coming weeks, namely more tuning and styling info, updates will be added gradually. Keep an eye out for these.
: Unfortunately the Dragster Message Board has had to be reset due to a number of errors. Apologies for any inconvenience. N.B. There's no need to re-register, all the members details have been kept.
: PM Tuning sent us a press release for the splendid new
PM58 X-Tech Pro exhaust. Click here
for all the info.
The Gallery sections have now been
updated with new Dragster pics for your enjoyment, (you'd be advised
to hit refresh if your web page doesn't automatically reload).
At the weekend I spotted a couple of rather excellent Dragsters
at the Doncaster Motor Show (UK). Mere photos of these
bikes don't do justice as they really have to be seen to be believed.
They're quite simply the best artistic examples I've seen so far
- gold/chrome plating, engraving, airbrush art galore. More pictures
of these beauties will be in the Gallery shortly.
