for speed [four speed]















my old four-speed sportster project. ironhead frame and back wheel, drum brake, stock 883 evo engine but s+s race bellmouth on one off manifold, buell header pipes, wrapped because they were rough as a badgers arse. sixteen inch rear wheel rammed up the sharp end, [long, long before harleys 48 before you ask] front caliper is a billet-6 item. i cut out a piece of checker plate and araldited it over the billet-6 logo. honda cbx clip-ons with one-off machined bars, battery carrier, yokes, bates headlight mounting, footpeg mounts, oil tank, coil mounts, aircraft filler chopped into aftermarket chinese copy tank, fireblade controls, reg plate milled and mounted off the primary, seat height? around eighteen inches off the ground [remember, the rear wheel is sixteen inch diameter, add on the tyre and look at the picture four from the bottom for an idea of scale] no paint or powdercoating [bar the wheel rims] shotblasted frame, scotchbrited tank and rear trailer mudguard, [race flag checkers and off-set stripes rattle canned, tube marking pen white highlights and stencilled] low, fast and loud.........

    2. And that turned out to be how I got to know your blog... Your MZ made me think about getting one and modifying it for the track for a long while. Now I ended up with an aircooled-RD (as a start)
