I endorse your remarks mm_tribsa -- thank you Trevor -- if IŽd had the sort of info in 1968, that Trevor has been putting out here IŽd have had a go at some serious tuning myself instead of leaving it to others to do for me. I cannot criticise Derek who persuaded me to build Icarus-1 in the first place we all thought that following Dr Joe ErhlicŽs ideas was all there was to it and after all, he made the EMC fly -- or was it young Hailwood who made it fly? Quite frankly I was too heavy for a Bantam anyway and Derek providing Icarius-1 with a good torque curve was probably the better way to go -- plus Icarus-1 was reliable... Blair came in with the QUB as I was head-hunted away from Blighty and the Bantam Club. I excuse my lack of personal tuning on always being too busy which I regret now that it is too late.

But there was also a lot of progressive development of engines plus the cycle parts -- plus streamlining, of course -- in the club during its existence and one could point a finger at certain times when chancy new ideas -- like water-cooling came in -- and max-revs got into double figures... etc... etc.....
