Doing the final once over's to the race bikes and getting ready for the long pull up I95 to Millville NJ and NJ Motorsports Park. My son is finally taking the race school and will be on the track with his Honda RC51. As usual, I'll be racing my Triumph in Classic 60's 650 and the B50 in Production Heavyweight. Would be happy to see any of you "locals" if you have time. Semper Bill and Alan F will be there riding their 650's as well. June 18-20.

Bill Gould aka Semper Gumby is planning to make an appearance with his A65. We typically pit together. 17c and 59c. I believe the big Honda will be there with us too. #399.

All forgiven, Bill. Get it ready for Michigan.
Had a good day Saturday. Took wins on both bikes. Almost prefer to not talk about Sunday.... Bumped the B50 into 500 Sportsman. Then allowed my throttle hand to write a check that the bike couldn't cash. A bit too much throttle coming out of a left turn ended in a lowside. Then had a coil bracket fail on the 650.

Mark, Any European 650 pre 1970. Triton etc, ok. Stock frames only. Exhaust below footpegs. No disc brakes but 71 conical is legal. Stock look is specified but most use clubman type seats. Max .040 overbore, max 32mm carbs, concentric or "period" carbs. I have VM's and so far nobody has protested. 4 speed gearbox or 5 speed restricted to 4. Pretty much anything internally is fine as long as the carb and overbore is adhered to. My Triumph is tuned fairly mildly. I have some well designed 10.5 pistons, stock cams, 750 intake, and a 4 plug head. It starts making good power at about 4.5k and doesn't turn off till I do, usually about 7200.

What are the rules for classic '60s 650? What are you allowed to do?
