yep!!! he's only a young lad,.

app plumber and puts every single penny he owns into racing, EVERY single penny, doesnt smoke or drink! :| no road bike or car and an ancient transit he got gave him..

this will be his first major foray into racing in england, hopefully the budget will hold out for him.

bike in first pic of post is a bike Im currently building to race next year hopefully, a TZR 3ma (rev cyl) if you know any spares kickin around...

then if i get my mountain licence Id love to do MGP year after. B)

TBH Mark most good going 400s or 250s are plenty quick enough for anyone, except for outright top speed.

we done a four hour endurance in 2006 on one of the NC30s and for the first 3hrs the 400 was the second fastest lap there, against 1100s/750s/600s etc. gixers blades etc. I could never ride that hard, but there you go.

Hey Steps, dragged this thread back up :)

Odd coincedence maybe, but I also used to race an NC35, had some good rides on the little thing, no greater pleasure was had than stuffing a 600, 750 or 1000 had a few lads come up to me in the pits and give me gip lol

few pics

no worries sprocket, its the little trophies that usually mean the most. :)

and ye, I know what you mean about the big bikes, all they do is power down the straight and hold you up in the corners, :slap

nice bikes, do you still have any?

I'll see if I can dig up some more recent pix.
