Called in to see a customer today and whilst i was waiting in reception i noticed someone had autographed the wall. I asked and it turns out 12 times World Trials champion Dougie had done a factory tour on his bike and autographed the wall as a momento.

I said "so he came for a look round, what did he think", she said "no, he toured the factory on his bike!!"

The proof is below and pretty amazing Smile you also see boxes of our material lined up and being impact tested etc at various points throughout the Video Smile

It's also cool that I get to walk into the place and fawn over all the stuff they have there as well. Along with the knowledge that I supply the material that makes the bars, sprockets and levers etc.

It still amazes me the skill they have and the way they can turn a piece of aluminium the shape I supply it into what they do Smile

Still working on a discount as well but they're a bit funny about that kind of thing Wink
