You wait around for ages and then... Yep, two copies of the long sold-out first issue have come up on eBay, both in Britain, one in Stoke-on-Trent, the other in Morecambe. Neither auction is anything to do with us, though we know the Stoke bloke, it's the Magazine Man, Brian Ashley. MP
We have a few of these left in Small, XL and XXL. £15 plus post.
Head over to the Sideburn webshop to snag one. G

This is a picture of the second generation prototype superwheels they include some performance and cosmetic refinements. Three sets will go to selected GNC teams, which I would like to thank for their trust and commitment.
One set will tested for fatigue, impact and corrosion restance. This is required to be approved for legal street use in Europe. The fifth set will be used on a very exciting street-legal-ready-to-race project.
The Superwheels are now very close to be released for production and to really turn this into a succesful mission, it needs a passionate, hands-on, creative marketing partner if this person is out there, he/she is most likely to read Sideburn so if you feel that this is something you like to do please get in touch.
Killer Diller radio experience. Ninety two minutes of essential listening. Track listing includes Les Jaguars, Jimmy Ricks & the Ravens, LaVern Baker and Tula Babies. Listen here or download for keeps. MP

It's a '98 Yamaha WR400 flat tracker, Talon/Excel 19" wheels, k1 Bandit 1200 forks, shortened rear shock with a stiffer spring, cams re timed to YZ specs. Fancy swinging 'unbreakable' clutch lever. Bodywork is a bit scruffy and cracked in places. If I was racing it for another year I would want to do the cam chain, piston and rings but that's down to the buyer.
Disclaimer: Sideburn is not selling or profiting from the sale of this bike. We don't know the history of the bike and we're not vouching for it, we just want more racers in the the DTRA.
