Hi all,

John 'Doc' Warner, a friend on FB is currently fettling this little number and it may appear on the classic parade circuit. I'd love to see it circulating.

Interesting bike, a pity it looks so....(I would like to insert the word "ugly" here, but perhaps that is being unkind) square....
I find the idea of a monocoque motorcycle quite fascinating. I wonder what it rides like

The photos I took of this bike at the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling this year.

It is actually fitted with a front sprocket I donated so it could be geared down. My claim to fame of 2017 :D

Cheers Geoff

It looks much better with a fairing on. It ties those angular lines in nicely. Perhaps I was too harsh before

I guess the angular lines are inherent to the type of construction. Colin Seeley was also making the race cars for Bernie Eccelstone at the time so I would imagine he used his knowledge of their construction and applied it to his motorcycle frames.

Cheers Geoff

Thats a nice looking machine, would be interesting to ride, from the pictures the engine is quite enclosed, I wonder if there is enough airflow?
I like the twin disc set up, I run a single TZ350 disc on my bike and at the last race I noticed I was running out of brakes on the hard breaking corners at Calafat circuit (spain) considering a brake upgrade for next season.

cheers

Eamonn
