Montgomery-Anzani record breaking machine. Ridden by Claude Temple to two world records in the five lap 1000cc race at Brooklands. He had an average speed of 105.52 mph, the highest speed recorded to that date at Brookelands.
The engine is a single overhead camshaft British Anzani, 996 cc, vee twin. The designer of the engine, Hubert Hagens, is standing behind the bike.
The forks looks like Harley Davidson equipped with a scissor damper.
Claude Temple looks like a tuff man, even with a tie and white sweater…. He`s boot are well oiled from the engine.
