Goodwood Revival 2008

It is time to plan next summer.........Why not try Goodwood Revival , a weekend for all your motor needs. Bikes, planes, cars and racing. You have to dress to look the part.
Like those big GP carbs on the HRD.....

The racing was good. Smell of burnt rubber......

You can use a Triumph engine to motor your midget racer. Remember to reverse the head.

I did not have room for this Manx engine in the luggage. Ryan air don`t like overweight....

Long stroke plunger Manx Norton.....Sound of music....

Matchless G45

Mean looking police man waiting for a high speed pursuit..

The big ting now a day is recycling.......That`s why I have recycled this Amal GP velocity stack to a shoot glass. The man who sold it to me said it was from a Manx Norton once raced at the Isle of Man. I don`t know if that`s thru, but it makes an extra flavor to the drink.......I think i call it a day and go green.

Triumph GP

Just got the cylinder head and barrel back from the machine shop. Could not resist mocking the engine up, just for looks.
