Picture quality not brilliant, but this brought back a lot of memories.

Sure someone must have some photos somewhere - Paul is on Facebook - he probably has some....
I seem to remember that bike being a very bright - almost fluorescent red - mind you - memory's not that good :roll:
Bodywork will be the easy bit....
2 strokes are the future...

There's a picture of Paul and Roger at Aberdare Park on this thread.

Thanks for all your help guys, I will come out and introduce myself at a few meetings later in the year. In the mean time I'm just arranging collection and then I'll find out just how much work is going to be needed!

I'm just going over it at the moment to get it ready for a bit of parading / hill climbing. I'm not sure it's eligible for any long circuit racing at the moment due to the engine configuration but if anyone knows different I'm up for it.
I retire in two years time and my intention is to have the chassis put back to original and refit the proper TZ350 engine and the original bodywork ,if this is indeed the machine you and some notable others raced in the past it's got to be worth doing. I had always promised myself to race classic sidecars, I've been lucky enough to have spent a lifetime racing cars and rallying so the work involved isn't an issue. If you have the time to offer any advice or who to speak to in the future it would be greatly appreciated. You'll have to have a ride when it's done.
