Fondling bits

Sometimes you have to make up for a lack of talent by convincing yourself you need more power.

Willow Springs Ahrma with Superbikes

No grip, no fun. The racing Gods were not smiling upon me. Actually, they were laughing at me.

Buttonwillow club racing.

Raced with CSRA Vintage Superbike this past weekend at sunny Buttonwillow, CA. 2 hours north of LA so an ungodly Saturday 5am alarm, quick cup of tea followed by a quick blast up the 5 freeway. Quick set up of gear, 8am riders meeting and then a day of practice.

Single race on Sunday which was uneventful. I thought I was motoring along but my best time was 3 seconds slower than last month. Hmmmm.

Had fun though and it's nice to get out there with the Superbike guys.

Quick pack up and home by 2pm Sunday.

Civilised racing if you ask me.......

Ex racebike for sale

Cleaning out my bike corner in the New Year. Selling various race/performance bits. Seen here is an ex BOT Lemans 1000 racer. Last raced in 1988 at Brianerd where it was crashed and then sat for 30 years. I'm finishing up some details and preparing to sell it.

Specs: 992cc 90x78mm. Big valve heads. Stock cam and rods. Alloy timing gears. Dr John EPA 2into 1 exhaust. 90mm Gilardoni piston (Nikasil cylinders). California 3 18" tubeless wheels. Lightweight clutch. Lectron 40mm carbs etc.

Perfect base for a Dr John endurance replica or basis for vintage track bike. Would need further development to be fully competitive. Probably makes 65rwhp.

I also have various period high performance parts for sale.

Please contact me at for more pictures, details and price.
