No doubt you will be spraying the fans with a no expense spared bottle of Lionne Rouge.

Well done mate.

Volty wrapped up the open post classic championship at Manfield. By my reckoning [provisional] 224 points for Volty to 214 for Terry Martin on the Rob North Trident.

To finish first , first you have to finish. Volty competed at every round, finished almost every race & did not fall off, consistency rewarded. Job well done.


Hey Mister ,, Can I have your autograph

Thank you for your kind words Trustme, its been a fun year and this just tops it off. To think this time last year the bike was

but an assortment of parts......

We don't have a puel roem so I cleared a place in the hall way amongst the BMW posters I collected many many

years ago.....

Big thanks to all who helped and encouraged me along the way.

When I started this thread the plan was to have a bit of fun on the track, along the way I have made new friends and met

some really cool people.

If you have always wondered about going Classic Bike racing I hope this thread offers some inspiration.

cheers Volty.

Maybe some 7.5:1 pistons so he can run the same race fuel as 146. And a 36-24-36 cam to go with it.

10.5 forged pistons , alloy barrel with nikasil to suit billet long con rods,cams ex Franklin cams, new rh fork for second disc, caliper on it's way, race fuel from now on

The barrels needed a 40' bore, which meant we were getting to the point where distortion becomes a problem not to mention total failure. Do I resleeve or buy new barrels, I started to mentally add up the costs & thought , well I'm in this far might as well chuck the cat another canary.

Bugger the budget
