Yes, because back then you asked for an Allstate pantah.

I think it was Roger Sears, and the bike went through several variations over the 1980s. See page 54 of "The Untold Story".

I also think someone on the TT/F1 site knows where it is now.

This bike has a really great story behind it. I think it's a Wolf built frame, I think Roger Sears was a designer at GM and designed the whole machine. When Bar brought the bike to the second Symposium, he had the original drawings and some of the prototype parts. It was at the second Symposium at Ralphs garage. It's owned by Bar Hodgson in Canada.

Hello...
Does anyone know if the fork on the bike is a 35 or 38mm version, and if that fork was on the bike when Mr. Sears won his title?
Regards...

Hello everybody
I like the look of this bike, custom frame of course but what about the body work?
It's custom too or came from other commercial bike?
The tank remember me same '80 street 125 bikes we had in Italy but i can recognise it.
Thanks

ciao
Filippo

Hi Filippo, I am pretty sure the bodywork was all custom as was the frame. I saw some of the drawings and a aluminum version of the tank at the second Symposium. Lou
