Extra details This is the only Motorpaced Stayer bike built by Trevor Jarvis. It was built for and raced by "Tony Orme" BCF National Squad team member.  The bike was raced by Tony in the National Championships during the early nineties.  He was nudged out of bronze on the last lap due to heat exhaustion.  He was the only amatuer in the finals that day.This bike was found as a frame and fork only.  It has been restored to be as it would have raced in the day.  The wheels are correct linen wrapped wheels from the period. Truly a unique piece of Flying Gate history
