Having a rest after a bit of fun on the farm, heres my 1958 Norton Dommie Scrambler/Desert Racer (aint no deserts here tho!!!!)
more pics ('scuse the legs, its summer, lol) http://s233.photobucket.com/albums/ee71/steveplowman/the%20great%20escape/
I got hold of this 1929 twin port OHV JAP motor as part of a deal with some Triumph parts, after doing a bit of Google homework and making a couple of calls to Cameron Racing Engines, I now know that its a 1929 350cc Sports single. Ive managed to get hold of a late 1920's Chater Lea frame, from a sports single so the plan is to gather the bits together to build a vintage racer/sprinter.
Forgot all about the Diary, lol, back here so I beeter bring it up to date. Black Bob went back together, again, with new push rods, valves and collars, has been run in nice n gentle (yeah right!!) and is pulling strong. Still needs a bit of fettling with the Mikuni but seems to be running happily enough.
