Trusty Bandit

Fitted a 180 55 Z 17 Pirelli Sport Demon GT onto this trusty Suzuki Bandit in Burton On Trent.

Two jobs in one !

These are the kind of jobs I love. Customer wants 2 tyres on their Honda CRV and 1 tyre on their Triumph T595. This means i can get 2 jobs done in half the time and reducing fuel costs. As you can see from pictures i used an air jack for removing the wheels on the CRV, these are alot lighter than trolley jacks so hopefully I wont pull my back out lifting this in and out of van :) The bike only had a single swing arm so my centre paddock stand came in very useful today. I used
