another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Thursday, 16 September 2010

been busy with the racer, built carb up out of parts from two carbs, had big problems at snett with the bike blowing fuel/oil mix all over the back tyre, dodgy as, we failed scrutineering at snetterton, got the chief scrute and he had to find something wrong with our bike, 'footpegs are too square, they should have radius ends", i had to buy a pair of pegs for twenty-quid to be able to race, £20 for a pair of shit-mass-produced pegs that we could have made in ten minutes, i took them off as soon as i got back and drilled the end of my homemade pegs, mixed up some araldite rapid and bonded in a couple of nylon sliders.
