Earlier the year I bought a Racebike Chassis and tank that was built by Andy Sidlow from the UK in the late '80's. It was raced for the '87 or '88 season before it was retired in favor of a spine frame. It was an impulse buy.Fascinating. What provenance do you have to positively track it back to Sidlow? The brazing certainly looks like his trademark work, but the stuff around the swing arm pivot is not brazed. I see you have a different swing arm to that in the first pic which shows a floating FD. Regardless, it is an interesting frame and I will follow with interest, good work so far.
Provenance came from the fellow I bought it from, and Confirmed by pictures and Amedeo from raceco. From what I gather, it was a raced for a season and was a testbed. It was abandoned when the spineframe became available. It was twitchy and the second owner performed the rear swing arm was change. Some or the rear work will be revised. This is not some world championship winning racer. I had a Lemans 1000 motor with a hot cam in it, a tranny, forks and wheels. This frame became available and it was really different. I'm not disputing it for a moment, in fact I think its a cool project & I would like to follow it. I met Andy when he passed through NZ a few years ago, he stood in my workshop and gave me great advice regarding mt replica Egli Vincent frame. By all accounts, he made more than a few, & I have seen one which arrived here about that time. We were surrounded by Guzzis in my shop but I dont recall Andy mentioning that he had ever had involvement with a Guzzi frame for anyone, but then we were engrossed in Egli talk at the time.
I've already contacted Amedeo. Andy Sidlow is the mystery person.
Contacted Mr. Sidlow. It is one of his early frames
