Here in United States, we dont see too many Bantams, however we do have 125 cc , 165 cc, and 175 cc, Harley Davidson Hummers!
Here are some links to Harley Hummer racing:

Oh Yeah!

My king of racing -- wide bars, not too much gear changing, NO BRAKES and sitting comfortably --- who could ever be comfortable with that chin-on-tank, knees-under- elbows lark!

Davenport lap scorers must learn to count though!!

Cheers!

Thanks for posting - looks a lot of fun!

Quite a difference between the exhaust notes - some deep slower revving and some little screamers!

Superb, neat videos, great sounds.
I reckon you guys have big kahunas racing on those tracks.
I am building a 175 Bantam flatracker based on pictures of an early Hummer, for a mate.
I don't think I will be demonstrating it tho, it can just be for show alongside his '60s Ford Mustangs.

Great JohnS...! -- if I come over to your place can I have a ride? I really reckon Dirt Track, Flat Track or Grass Track -- none of that squashing the poor old body up into an articulated, unhealthy heap. I just wonder now why I ever did!!?

CheerS!

Your preference to going anti clockwise says it all John. Laughing

Thanks Ned!

Should have stuck to Grass Track -- yet I would have missed some fantastic experiences had I done so. Like being Chairman of the BRC was really WEIRD!!

I always felt road racing was too precise and I was far too sloppy for it -- on grass the mistakes by risking too much donīt have the `gī force that road does and consequently donīt hurt quite as much. On the straight at High Wycombe I was timed at 99.8mph (couldnīt quite squeeze that 0.2mph out of the JAP Enfield!) which says we werenīt going that slow on the grass.

Musnīt slip into sloppy nostalgia again -- so go well Young Man and keep well.

Cheers!

John-Boy!

John have you forgotten "Salty" He was a grass tracker before he took up road racing and went on to win the British 125 championship.

Only joking Ned -- as usual, youīd no doubt say -- I was just getting the hang of road racing, with Andyīs 250, 5 gears and lots of grunt when greed for uplift of status & lovely money took over otherwise Iīd have been another Champion...

Who was Salty anyway -- seems a familiar!

Cheers!

Yeah well, Ned -- I forgot dinnīn I!!

Lot of water under the bridge -- or a lot of beer under the belly -- since then.

Who was the other Dave? -- I bought racing boots off him -- from East Ham way who had his fatal accident at Brands??

Were you there for Slickīs 18th Birthday party? Someone was bombing Slick with water-filled condomes.

You???

Cheers!
