Cool Vid Kenny.
Sounds almost authentic two stroke, (as a 4 stroker can !!! I am going deaf tho!)
The three pipes give it a sound akin to that cackle crackling of three pipes on a smoker! Nice! How's it run without the exup valve though, can I detect just a hint of strangled throttle at standstill?

And had to laff at the mallory Vid.
"No one could ride these machines to work - the engines are built to tight racing specifications" ....
just as the 'mech' is using a big hammer on the exhaust in the pits LOL

KR (the original) was so tiny on them TZs. (nice find with black wheels nuggit)
Great style, original of the Aliens / Gods of GPs.
Transatlantic series was also at Brands and at Oulton too if recall, remember seeing Mick Grant on the Kwacker there at Lodge, with Kevin Schwantz even being involved at Donnington right up to the last.
Should bring that kinda competition back, I've sort of lost interest in BSB / WSBK but at least Cal's keeping me interested in MOTOGP.
Enjoy the bike Kenny, hope to see you round the North West sometime on that bike - if I do, will deffo run after you for a chat.

Bonly. Am I right in thinking it was the Transatlantic series when the Yanks came over and tried to beat our lads on our own circuits?


What you mean tried ?
Cal Rayborn came with a 3 year old KR 750 Flathead Harley and won 3 out of 6 races on tracks he had never even heard of, never mind seen.

Hi Nuggit

it was in Leeds having the work done when I had my off.

I decided then my leathers were being hung up.

I had also ordered full set of custom leathers

Today the bike has returned home after all the work has been completed so will be listed on eBay tomorrow frown

cheers John
