FBB pics..... hopefully!
« on: June 14, 2019, 14:08 »





This was the last dry build to make sure everything fitted properly.....it did! Engine is a full fat keith Nairn affair. Lightened crank, hi comp pistons blah blah blah. Should be good for 100+ at the wheel.

The headers are from an old three into one system and the silencer ( Hahahahahahaha) was made by NRP exhausts. He used to work for motod and now most of his work is for classic racers, so he knows his onions.

Glad to see the bottom frame rails have been stuck back on.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

It's been hanging about for 10 years. If it hangs around much longer Padlock will be too old to ride it  :D
