For John and who ever.

Terry -Bracey-wright was involved with a conversation with Fred Launchburry, who were trying very hard to pursuade my dad to join the Bantam racing club, sadly dad was already a memeber!, but could not get a word in to say so.

Terry built his water cooled bantam in around 1963, he used an EMC pattened Exhaust and directed the expansion box directly under the frame tube for good ground clearence, so it was quite low. The Forks and front Hunb were both from a Bianchi and cost 1,10s Od, the only addition to this was hard linings being fitted along with a home made air scoop for cooling.

The Hole bike was built for less than 60.0 including new close ratio gearbox std flywheels were polished but was replaced soon after with a small crank flywheel set-up from George Todd, that included a alpha conrod, the piston was a hepolite with a dykes compression ring fitted.

regards Derek
