Robert Sutton 1994 900SS

Robert Sutton sent us these

Attached are some snaps of my 1994 900SS. I prised this machine off a very good friend in 2009 who purchased it in 1996. The Duke has now covered just over 34,000 miles. It started life with a full fairing. My friend sourced a half fairing second-hand and later also fitted the twin headlight conversion. My friend also acquired the L90 DUC number plate. The original fairing has been retained but will not be refitted as I prefer the look of the half fairing. A carbon fibre front mudguard and rear hugger have been fitted, together with an Oberon open clutch cover and Oberon slave cylinder to lighten the clutch. Cutting off and painting the retained 'stubs' to a second-hand pillion handrail streamlines the rear end in my opinion. Homemade lathe turned aluminum caps fitted to the open frame tubes are neat. The right-hand main tube welded to the head stock began to fracture. A local motorcycle workshop was able to repair the fracture without stripping off too much and repainted the repair very professionally.

I just love this bike which shares the garage with my much modified 2006 Triumph Thruxton I must come and drool at your bikes in the show room sometime soon.
