Off to Cadwell Park at dawn tomorrow for the CRMC meeting (Fri, Sat & Sun). Hopefully the rider will have an easier bike to ride than it was at Pembrey (I had the carb slides in backwards :oops: )

Cheers Geoff

Not what we wanted, but hay-ho :( Mike sorted the chatter problems we had at Pembrey.

Hello jimmy,

A big end failure on the LH side of the crank. Piston and bore fine, apart from minor cage debris marks. The rider, Mike Hawthorne, got the clutch in toot sweet when the engine note changed, saved more damage to the engine and his ass as well :D

Onwards and upwards (Kerching :lol: )

Cheers Geoff

Here is the 3rd (engine wise) incarnation of my Seeley T500 replica. This is the "race" spec. engine which hopefully will make in the region of 65 bhp at the rear wheel. When the all up weight is 121 Kg it should fairly hustle along. I have included a short bit of video on it's first start but apologise for my recording skills as I had to hold the bike up and manage the throttle at the same time.
