hi , wheels from 250 lc , front brakes isr , frame homemade design chrome -moly, g/box early quaife 4 speed , I race in supermono , mostly sweden finland norway , and the odd international european race when i can afford it.
hi again heres a close up photo of engine enclosed , and you should check out www.ellwoodhybrid.rocks it (404)
.... yes as you guessed it runs on 2 stroke oil , but with a separate pump.i also add a little redex to lube the valves.

There is a small silver booze bottle on the forward frame , which provides a water/alcohol mist for extra oxygen and cooling in the combustion chamber.

The only thing thats missing is an intercooler , but theres not a lot of space left.

best regards, john

  • Redex! Haven't heard that word for a few years, and then some! We used to have Redex trials here in Australia in the 1950's, often won by a fellow with the memorable name of Gelignite Jack Murray.
