These photos are of my old Dunstall after a head on smash back in 1985,  tank is on floor as the frame buckled and wont fit,  It had been stood in storage for 3 years when this piccy was taken,  at least the car was written off too, only 1 day  old as well, Think it was jinxed,, this was the second time id frontaled it with a Ford Fiesta and the owner before me did the same in Norway  RIP  Sept 25th 1985,,,im sure it wasnt as short as that when i got it

Club Stands 2013

I  would like to know if anyone would be willing to offer their bikes for display purposes at shows. I havent done a shows for a while for health reason but I hope to set up a pool of bikes that could be used.

We  normally get free stand space at most shows to promote the Dunstall name but wthout bikes available it is much harder to put on a decent display. Our first show was at Leeds back in 1984 and have done many at Stafford in the past, As a non subscription club we simply sold t shirts etc and a few items like fairings and mudgaurds to finance it all.

We also had our own insurance scheme but I am not sure if its still active, I will look into this and report back asap.

If anyone can offer their bike for a show please let me know and which area of the country the bike would be available for.
