This is the style that appeals to me, a really nice looking bike. It shows all of your hard work and skills, a real credit to you. Have you got any others? if so i would love to see them.

Not as far as i know but he may have dabbled.
I'll have to ask him the next time i see him.
I've only known him personally since around 2014 and mainly meet up for the weekends at the track and Stafford show etc.
Before that i only knew of his drag racing efforts, The Village bike shop and various appearances in Superbike mag etc back in the day..

Two beautiful bikes ! If they go like they look then wow !
I have a moriwaki Z900/1000 motor under my bench that I bought years ago to put my Z1R but never got round to it, i bought it off a sidecar guy at Aintree fresh out of his unit and running well, any good to you ?

Yes! They go well enough for old boat anchors ;)
Silver and blue ones see the high side of 160 easy enough.
Both similar spec motors, silver cafe is light ( same weight distribution as an R6 ) so really picks up rapidly.
Supercharged one is a bit more tricky, good on the straight but slower in the bends as it steps out and powerslides if you don't feather the throttle.
Just realised you meant the two project bikes.
The Moriwaki Turbo will be a similar spec motor to the drag bike but better so should be rapid and the Racecrafters much like the other two motors.
Sent you a PM regarding the engine.
