Well done to Harry and his rider James Cowton for the 500 class win at Catterick Hillclimb this weekend.

Run a close second by Mick Fox (BSA B50).

Leaving the twins (well me anyway!) way behind smile

A great day which as usual saw an array of interesting old machines unearthed to be mercilessly thrashed up a millitary tank training track! More pics are at:

Please forgive my lack of knowledge, but "What is a hillclimb in England?". It doesn't look anything like the hillclimbs I've been to here in the US of A. Looks a whole lot cleaner.

Kenneth, a hill climb here in Europe is usually a race against the clock on a twisted uphill road. Hillclimbs are often held on a public mountain pass road.
Here's a link to a famous one for cars and bikes in Switzerland:
www.klausenrennen.com
I think the Pikes Peak in Colorado is a similar event.
The hill climbs you think of are relatively new in Europe and attract a whole different crowd.
Regards,
Jeff

Thanks for the answers. Looks and sounds like fun, but could be very dangerous. I've been up Pikes Peak and I wouldn't want to miss a curve. But on the bright side, you have plenty of time to figure out what you did wrong!

Yeah, Pikes Peak is pretty unforgiving (suprisingly few major accidents in it's history); this one seems to have some restraining structures and foliage.

Yep ! Mike Fox can sure make that B50 go, often beating Manx and G50 replicas, pity he falls off sometimes :O).
((Sorry Mick, he, he, !)

LOL! Thank-you for doing what few have done with the incredibly "versatile" unit single motor! Is it dual plugged can't see that bit, the super simple and durable I bet! rear set work is top notch geometry.
Try the carb even further back I say! and give them a real show bollocks to the fancy calculations.
How about a run at the Bol d'or for old times sake! LOL! think that hill is enough! I saved the pics any bits I make you need just holler free for some racers ;o).
To think a Norton chap posted this in need of resto video from France circa 1974!

Was it the year they actually won the 500? my Motorcycle weekly are a bit brittle to shuffle through.

The Morgans had 1000cc plus JAP or Matchless twins mostly,some had Ford 4 motors and the odd Vincent has been fitted. Ithink the JAP KTOR motor was the one to have.
