So yeah the engine, only 15 more days to go and this thing's meant to racing. Better pull my finger out. Gunk it up, hose it down, and hoof it in. Pray that the other replacement parts and tools from Heiden Tuning in Holland turn up quickly - I couldn't find anywhere in the UK that had what I need.
The Boyer Bransden electronic ignition is now fitted.
Wish I'd never seen this video of Hugh Owings 720∘rephased XS.
Raucous. Those hot rod dreams will have to wait. BP

Sideburn is a magazine made four times a year by Gary Inman, Ben Part and some of the best freelancers in motorcycling. It features racing, custom bikes, street trackers and great stories from all over the world.
