Abstract: Let $ BO\left\langle 8 \right\rangle $ denote the classifying space for vector bundles trivial on the $ 7$-skeleton, and $ MO\left\langle 8 \right\rangle $ the associated Thom spectrum. It is proved that, localized at $ 2$, $ BO\left\langle 8 \right\rangle \wedge \,bo$ and $ MO\left\langle 8 \right\rangle \wedge \,bo$ split as a wedge of familiar spectra closely related to $ bo$, where $ bo$ is the spectrum for connective $ KO$-theory.
