The kids had my old photo album out this afternoon and I found a couple of photos of Sports mc bikes one was used in the BOTT. The Duchess which I am sure had a 600sl motor was taken around these events to be raffled off I suspect the other had a larger engine in place. Have also included a pic the Norton Rotary which was also raced at the same meeting at Knockhill in Scotland thought they may be of interest to some of you!

Interesting exhaust on the rotary. Can someone explain that plumbing?

Rust was to help the cooling " suck" the air through

That iPhone does strange things to my postings.
It was supposed to say that it helped to suck air through the air cooled engine.

No 127 is a Spondon framed Ducati, and funnily enough, I spoke to a guy last weekend who had bought one from Steve Wynne a few years ago.
Will now investigate how many he sold
