Awesome clip.

I struggle to think of anything I have done that was more fun than doing laps around a track on a classic race sidecar.

The F1 sidecar is a close second for fun but that was more a punishment than a pleasure. (reminds me of an ex girlfriend )

R90 Mk 2 engine on the bench awaiting fettling.

K-line valve sleeves fitted.

Beer and engine work go well together- yeah right.

Herr Headroom is full swing on the lathe, taking X mm off the Cylinders

Did a trial assembly yesterday. Probably close it all up next weekend.
Needs to be running for the start of the Hamilton Motorcycle Club winter series.

Yup, Nimbus - Danish, IL4 running fore and aft, shaft drive, pressed steel strut frame. They made them substantially the same for decades. There're a few in NZ.

News Flashy. Hot Tip. :

Let the Irish in you rise to the surface. Wrap those spendy race tyres in glad wrap at the end of each meeting & keep covered from the sun to stop them going off

I promise not to tell Adrian. Although I will struggle to convince Jayne that your new found fetish for glad wrap is all above board.

Bank account details to follow.
