Hi,

After 15 years of restoration and building with lots of help from others I finally managed a few trackdays at Cadwell Park and Donington Park........ I'm too slow and too old and at 6ft 5" tall the bike is a bit small for me......... but it was brilliant fun ..............

A really wonderful feeling that after all of the hard work the bike handled well and worked properly.

Cheers

That looks outstanding! Crowtrees for the win, especially at Cadwell. 

Time to wander back to the build thread for a looksee I think.

When I was at Cadwell the bike AND Crowtrees both attracted attention - Alec of Crowtree Leathers was a Gentleman and remains a popular and highly respected man in racing circles who is sadly missed , especially at Cadwell which as you know was his local track - Alec and his wife made an amazing team and undoubtedly saved the lives and health of many riders with their high quality leathers.
