    Re: Marina Roadster Spares

    Mine does have the hole in the centre of the rack tube so I guess its a Mk2. There is a number stamped on the pinion body which is 49 86R.

    Re: Unobtanium spares for the Marina roadster?

    I didn't fit the adjustable tie bars to adjust the castor angle as some have because that's largely fixed by the geometry of the chassis and, only in my opinion, there is a risk of imparting strain...
