Mark one Pro Burner with an \'R\' gusset. £200 to any one who wants it. Complete bike, need a polish, but most parts are original. Can take it to any race I\'m going to, which is most of them.

I can\'t remember who was talking to us about them. I was there at the time, I wish I could remember who we were talking to at the time. Next time I see rich.s I\'ll ask him, he might know, I think he might be at Milton Keynes on Sunday. It would have been some one who rode for them who still races and knows us I would guess.

the two people that have mentioned those bikes are, Julian Hammonds AKA julian torker AKA Dale Winton, and Rob, the old school mega collector guy that comes to the south regionls sometimes. its when your wilson comes out to play people talk about them frames.

i stand corrected by my old man.we got our wilson frames(he had a cruiser frame) from steve wilson the guy who used to produce them,he was a trials and speedway rider in the late 70\'s and turned to bmx bike production when bmx started getting popular.

Thats right Ben, I went to Steve Wilsons workshop/shed when we got the bike I\'ve still got. It was in some back street in Redditch, we went there after a race at the infamious track there with the bomb hole. He was secutary of the club there and I\'m sure he had alot to do with the Halfords factory team bikes, but I might be wrong about that last bit.

When I get home from work I\'ll dig out the old books and think of David Duffield! :D

No that was the Phaze 1. CW\'s standard race frame was called a ZX. The ZXL was an extra large version. I guess they made it for their riders like Pete Loncarevich.
