Its not all offroad here at Full Force. We also take great pride in working on road bikes as well. One noteable vistor last month was a very tidy and frequently used Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica.

The bike was in for a suspension service and spring upgrade. The owner uses the bike frequently and wanted to replace the original aged springs, while keeping this as original as possible. We didn't get a chance to take many photos of the progress but did snap a few after the job was completed. We do have a video of the bike leaving the workshop which will get up on youtube shortly. It was a privlidge to have in and it was amazing to hear it running. They certainly don't make them like they used to. 

If you haven't heard of this bike before, its definitely worth having a read about on Ducatis historical site below. Mike Hailwood was a ledgendary racer not only world champion 4 years in a row, but also 14 Isle Of Man wins, it was one hell of a career. Only to be followed by jumping in to an F1 car for teams Lotus, Lola, Surtees and Mclaren.

The window showing the cam gears was an intresting feature.
