Spondon was established during 1969 by Bob Stevenson and Stuart Tiller, the name being taken from a village in Derbyshire. Early projects included a still born chassis to house a Gold Star power unit and a frame for a Greeves engine, however, it was the creation of frames for the increasingly popular production racers emanating from Japan that would establish the firms reputation as one of the leading specialist chassis builders.
As with their road bikes the Japanesse chassis design lagged behind the engine development, consisitently resulting in very rapid machines being offered that suffered from questionable handling. This resulted in a healthy demand for aftermarket frame kits from companies such as Harris, Bimota and Spondon during the seventies and eighties.
Arguably the best known products to emerge from the Derbyshire works were the frame kits built to house the TZ series of liquid cooled two stroke, twin cylinder 250 and 350cc engines built by Yamaha.
This example of a Spondon framed TZ350 is, according to the vendor, the one used by Robert Dunlop to win the 1986 Irish Formula 2 Championship and the first of his fifteen victories at the North West 200, setting a fastest lap of 111.78 mph in the process. It is attractively presented in the yellow "Ken Dundee Commercials" livery and will make a fine addition to any collection.
