Hi from the Isle of Wight

Post  mr8valve on Thu 25 Aug - 13:34

My name is Mike and I'm a speedaholic!

I've owned, built, restored, ridden and sometimes crashed classic motorcycles and cafe racers for 30 or more years.

My current personal project is the repair (after crashing) and improvement of my 1972 Triumph TR6, who's name is Eight Valve. Not exactly a standard TR6 - 11.93 second standing 1/4 mile at the North Weald sprint followed by a long ride home says a lot.

Oh, and welcome!
