Hi
I keep thinking about one, DONT TELL MY WIFE!

What the Rover12T wants is how to configure the tubes. The Wessex has (what seems to be a steel) a monocoque tub (with fibreglass ends) that is connected to the bike with a pair of Z shaped tubular frames. Then the 1 Z are connected to gether with a 7th tube--(I Googled).
