Many here will have drooled over the fantastic (fast and winning!) YB5 raced at the main Aus festival of speed a couple of years ago.

I can reveal that this great machine is now in the UK. The very nice gent who lent the YB5 road bike for the 2017 Manchester Bike show stand has only gone and bought the bloody thing! As he is also a 'period correct' international rider in his own right I expect him to cane the balls of the machine on track.!

He is planning to get it to the Endurance Legends event at Donnington in a couple of weeks time

and is also seeing if it is possible to get Stephen Mertens (Ex YB4 works rider) to get out on track with it.

Just another reason to get along to one of the best events of the year on any UK track (and the paddock is BRILLIANT!)

Wow! I thought Rex would have hung onto that bike forever.

Rex's YB5 and me and my YB8:

He must have made him an offer he couldn't refuse...I was talking to Rex at the FOS about his YB5... no mention of having it up for sale
