Thanks for your kind words chaps.
Haven't weighed it yet but it should be slightly lighter than my other 750 which sits at 127kg with oil/no fuel.
When the Nitron shock arrived I thought they'd sent an empty box, and the magnesium Marzocchi replica forks weigh a miserable 3.4kg each with oil. ! Fairing and seat is thinner/lighter, Campags weigh less than the Dymags so am guessing at 122kg all up.
I'll weigh it at the TT.



Excellent! Good Luck!

My oh my, splendid piece of kit! Titanium shock spring and longer swing arm than usual? Thinking of front/rear weight bias. Looks a treat to ride and form should follow function even in the classics, happy to learn you fellas are really doing that!

Best of luck in the Island,

Francis McDermott

Chris Swallow not listed on Friday either, don't know why. Michael Rutter doing good. Manx radio broadcasting now, Lightweight race at 4 o'clock IOM time. About 40 min. from now.

Chris Swallow did start the race! The Ducati's REALLY stand out from all the two strokes on the radio, but we already knew that.

Heard Chris retired on 1st lap, Rutter in 3rd. Now in 2nd! Anstey on the Honda should be safe in 1st - did 120mph lap on first lap.

Lougher catching back up to Rutter - less than 8 seconds..Rutter held 2nd by 2.3 seconds at the finish - Congratulations!

Rutters' Ducati DQ'd in Lightweight.

"During post race scrutineering, a technical infringement was found in the Red Fox Grinta Racing machine ridden by Michael Rutter in the Lightweight Classic TT Race.
Michael Rutter has therefore been removed from the results with Ian Lougher promoted to second place and Ivan Lintin on the John Chapman Racing Honda is now awarded the third place finish."

He just finished 13th on the 888 in the Superbike.
And won the Junior race earlier today.
