Yes. I do still have it.. still looking pretty good. I'll take a pic and post it. Haven't changed so much as a brake cable in the last 15 years. A few signs of rust but I'll keep it forever.

Amazingly - he still has that black Master  - hasn't changed since these pics at Tizer '88!! (nor has he!!).

No way! Ricky Fleming! How the devil are you - never even knew you were on here!
Don't think the pics of you are from the K.o.S., just another day I was riding at Livi - '85 or something like that.
May well have been the same day this pic was taken of ME! :LolLolLolLol: Might help jog your memory!

I know what you mean - rode with a coaster for a while, on quarters too, but got spat off a few times as well- jumping up a kerb of all things, over the bars and headfirst into a hedge! Coasters bite!

I never had a problem with a coaster but if I had known how easy it was without one I would never have bothered. I think we were scared of not being able to do 540 kickturns and rollback 540's but I have done them with a freewheel now.

I did realise and drilled the coaster out of my Tuffs (!) and put a freehub in instead - went a lot higher after that!  :LolLolLolLol:



Funnily enough - used to pull rollback 540's all the time on a freewheel - but havin' trouble gettin past 360 now!

Never stopped mate, although I did stagnate a bit!
Still doing the same tricks I was 20 years ago!
Only time I wasn't riding was for nearly a year after my bike got nicked. Apart from that, it's been 1983 to present day.
Thinking about getting a new bike soon as well!

No ideas Dave, I'm in touch with Dave S but not heard anything from Ell for years. I've asked James Hudson and he doesn't see him anymore so no joy. There was a guy on here ages ago that used to ride at the Hudson's ramp when I used to go there and he was still in touch with Sean Allinson so I was hoping he could have found out if Sean knew what he was up to these days.

Other than that I've no ideas. He may come on here and not post or want to get involved, some do, not sure why but they do.  :-\

It'd be good to catch up with him, we once had a little fall out at Alfreton over nothing but we still spoke after that.
