Spike Livingstone shared this pic with us….of his rare Dresda race framed Suzuki 500

Hi Muzza, bought chassis from TGA racing at the end of `04 and put what should have been a very quick (according to seller) tr500 lump with a standard gearbox…. Finished build in time for first outing in classic parade at Snetterton in June. Everything felt fine so after recovering finances entered first ever race, post classic, at Pembrey. Put a big hole in the piston after three laps but established that it, and I, were more than up to the task. Look forward to `06……
 Frame is Dresda racing type, not the same as the roadgoing t500 Dresda frame. Tank is also a Dresda item.  Forks are works Suzuki and shocks are Falcon aluminium items. Braking is supplied by three AP racing calipers & is plentiful to say the least. seat unit also works item from an xr14 and fairing from a tz700……. The engine is currently undergoing a rebuild at the hands of Rob Greenhill of Cobra Racing (note: since deceased), I`ll fill you in on specs when I run out of money but its gonna be very, very fast…..!!
