    You sure have one beauty there and great to see it being used. And i would have to agree the Honda's were pretty good till they grinded the heads away with the cam shafts running in the alloy head. Just don't ever see many of them now.
    Regards
    Joe.

    Now there was a bike. It was fast enough and lasted. Yes in the day they would leak a bit. And often you would see a rider sitting along the road fixing something but it was the great thing then. The triumph and beeza's were fantastic and still are and still here in numbers. And yours are the best.
    Regards
    Joe

    I learned the wiring on of various bits when i visited Brands Hatch at the tender age of 15 Royal Enfield Crusader Sports at the time and in the days when you could visit the pits and see lines of Ducati 250 and 350 singles with most parts wired on...came in very handy until i discovered locktite.

    I can also remember watching Hailwood race Agostini and the sound was gorgeous.:)

    There’s quite a few Honda 6’s about but unfortunately they’re not originals.

    Usually they’re a 250cc 4 cylinder road bike with a couple of cylinders grafted on.

    As far as I know the only true replicas were built by Gearge Beale.
