Reso S P E C T I V E

By the time the 30 lap Race of the Year was lining up, the heavens opened, drenching the circuit and turning the spectator banking into a sea of orange mud - not to mention the fun, games and flaring tempers which came later as everyone made a dive for the limited exit gates The rain was the answer to Cooper's prayers, for he knew full well that the power of the MV would be negated by the slippery track and the slower revving single would have the traction advantage. So it proved to be, as on...

Curves

Ending a term with the suffix 'oid' means 'having the form of or resembling' - and that's invariably to do with something round or at least curved. This month the talk is round and round in circles PETER WILLIAMS I have always been fascinated by geometry and maths and the way that they can describe the world in which we live and the motorcycles we love to ride. The most recognisable geometric continuous shape is the circle. Engineering relies almost completely on the natural shape of the circle...

First 100 Mph Motorcycle

The first FIM sanctioned 10Omph motorcycle was Ernie Walker's 994cc Indian in 1920, but the unofficial record is Glenn Curtiss who bolted his V8 aero engine in a motorcycle chassis and did 136mph on January 24th 1907. Simple eh That's not quite all though. To maintain accuracy the integrating wheel has, what is in effect a small flywheel mounted below, fixed by a friction spring. This prevents the integrating wheel skipping as it returns to its zero stop, which would result in a false zero -...

Moto Guzzi do evolution, not revolution and the Le Mans was no exception. In the 60s, their range of 750 and, later, 850 big twins had proved robust and reliable so, when time came to design a sports bike to battle Ducati and Laverda's twins, it made practical, as well as economic, sense to start with what they already had. The heart of the affair is that lump of an engine that started life as the winner of a contest to design a more powerful bike for Italy's police and military. Popular myth...

North Leicester Motorcycles

Honda once claimed that it would have been cheaper to buy the Moto Morini concern and close it down than to develop a machine to beat them in Grand Prix so successful were the Italian singles. Formed in 1937 by Alfonso Morini, the Tresette Three Sevens was one of the company's most sought after road models before the advent of the popular 'Wee Vees'. One man who probably has 'Moto Morini, Bologna' running through his body, like a stick of rock, is Stuart Mayhew of Morini specialists North...

The A J S Stormer

My brief was to sell the AJS range, which by now consisted of an unsophisticated trials machine fitted with a Villiers 250cc A-series two-stroke motor and the considerably more competitive 250cc Stormer scrambler, conceived and designed by Bob Trigg. This had great potential thanks to its state-of-the-art frame - similar to a Commando sans the Isolastlcs -but with more suspension movement than rival machines, and using Ajay's own forks and ultra neat alloy conical hubs, which were mud-proof. The peppy engine was derived from the early 60s Starmaker. Villiers' original twin-carb comp-spec Starmaker had proved a great disappointment in both scrambling and road racing until Peter Inchley came on the scene. Peter sorted the engine for road racing, gaining an impressive third place, at over 91mph, in the 1966 Lightweight TT. Peter's role as development engineer was to make the engine suitable for the new AJS scrambler. He and his small team adapted well to the challenge and from 1968...

Mcintyre Matchless G50

Uncomfortable with swapping between Norton's Featherbed and AJS'7R chassis, Bob Mclntyre designed a frame to accommodate both engines and improve upon their respective chassis. A trio were built, which brought him success, and helped Jack Findlay onto greater things. They still exist and there's even a replica winning races in Australia. The first man to lap the TT Course at over 10Omph, in 1957, on the works Gilera, Scotland's Bob Mclntyre was a versatile and popular working class hero. After...

Do Bsa Db32 Come With Rrt2 Gear

Bsa Race Single

GEARBOX The RRT2 has needle roller bearings all over the place and has a close ratio with a high first gear. Yes, you'll need a few more revs than usual and you may have to slip the clutch a little to set off. Pattern component parts are available to replace the BSA clutch but, if It's going to be behind the primary cover, why not upgrade to a bullet proof NEB speedway unit or something similar, if it'll stand 70 odd horses of speedway, It'll stand what the Goldie can hand out. Alternatively,...

Bill Swallow

To use an Americanism, Bill is one of 'winningest' classic racers In the country. He's also part of a motorcycling tribe that goes back 90 years. Grandpa came back from WWI with the chance to buy a big house in Doncaster for 500 but bought a Brough Superior instead That was the first bike dad rode. Dad was Ken Swallow, who's first race was on his 1930s Scott, at Cadwell in 1946. Then he raced a 350cc Manx until he bought a Matchless G45 with leading link forks in 1954. All these bikes still...

Why Did Triumph Move From Amal To Su And Then Revert To Amal

1997 Suzuki Bandit 600 Throttle Linkage

Ex-Meriden man, Hughie Hancox explains In the austere postwar years, the 1949 Triumph Thunderbird was a breath of fresh air as far as the Americans were concerned. With its Nacelle, 650cc engine and sprung hub rear suspension, it really was the first 'superbike' with a parallel twin engine. After its French tour-de-force over 24 hours, with one of the riding team being my old mentor Alec Scobie, it quickly became the affordable bike to have with the British working masses. It was the big...
