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.

Time for new suspension, wheels and a tidy up.
