Spondon Frames

A Brief History of the Marque

Motorcycle Frame specialist Spondon Engineering began building components in Spondon, Derbyshire in 1969. Founders Bob Stevenson and Stuart Tiller used a variety of Yamaha two-stroke engines for their racing machines in capacities from 125cc to 750cc, and also the Rotax 250. Their road-going frame kits have been powered by Norton F1 and Silk engines, as well as powerplants from the major Japanese manufacturers.

In the 1970's and 80's they were involved with Barton Engineering, providing frames for their well-received Sparton and other machines.

One of their better-known kits in latter years is the Spondon Monster which utilises engines such as the Yamaha R1 and Suzuki GSXR. One example has a turbo-charged 1500cc GSXR engine.

Guzzi Frame
Guzzi Lemans
Hi, calling from New Zealand. While in the UK I purchased a book with a picture of a one off Spondon made frame for a Moto Guzzi. It was made in alloy and the engine hung from the frame. It had a floating swingarm unit fitted and I have always been fascinated by its design . Do you still have this frame or the jig you made it from as and if so I would be very interested In purchasing it from you if you would consider selling it. The book goes back a long way so Its a long shot as to weather you still have any details about this frame. thank you. Dave
