For anyone interested in competion Velos

https://velocetteracing.wordpress.com/about-the-2018-iom-campaign/building-a-works-350/


Unfortunately neither bike finished but the 250 got a flying lap at 90.5 mph and the 350 a standing start lap at about 94 mph. The 350 exhaust cracked at Ramsey so it was off tune over the mountain so better lap times should be possible.

That's just brilliant stuff, thanks for the link John. The kiwis can just get it done eh? More excellent engineers per head of population than anywhere else surely.
Inspires me on my own project, which is making good, if slow progress. A KSS motor with KTT mods/components, into an RS frame.

Thanks for the compliment. I'm going round to see Nick tonight so I will pass it on. He arrrived back from the IOM last night and is catching up on sleep.

He actually trained as a geologist and his practical engineering is self taught.

The 350 went through the speed trap at just short of 123 mph and the 250 at 107 mph. The farings are also pretty special. Made by the guy who did most of the latter Britten carbon fibre work.

The girder front forks on the 350 are also pretty special

The bikes stopped for really stupid reasons. The 350 cracked an exhaust pipe and the 250 had a leaking float chamber and ran out of gas on the last lap.

I would like to see pictures of that project, Jools.

I'll certainly post some pics and info before too long Missouri-Man.
Perhaps I'll start a 'build-thread' because there are plenty of interesting aspects to it.

I am sure many of us would enjoy and learn from that, I certainly would.
