Think it was one of these that I bought from a guy in Hull
for my sons 18th, via e-bay last year. It was a project bike
that the guy had put together and luckily enough the rear
swingarm snapped at a point that wasn't fatal, rather than
when he was flying down Snowdon on it, or around Gwydir,
either of which could've been fatal. It was sold to us as a
bombproof good allrounder. However, welded aluminium swing
arms do not 'bombproof' make !! But that was then and this
is now, so no doubt this bike's fine ;-) Dave.

I believe his was rewelded after being broken.
