I was reading a report on the 2013 Classic TT and I'm starting to wonder just what is classic racing? Reading the specs on the Kiwi built Manx Norton there would not appear to be much if any original Norton parts present. Yesterday I was talking to a guy who raced his BMW sidecar at Wanganui on Boxing Day and he had a Norton sidecar guy moaning about his BMW being 1050 cc.... Pretty rich BMW mate thought his Norton having Manley engine dynoed at over 100HP. His dry comment was " your six speed TT gearbox is worth more than my outfit" This all seems to pass under the 'replica parts with the same silhouette" rule......... All I am going to do to my BMW is fit the Avons I got and just go out go out and have some fun and wait for the " 1972 Commando" to lap me..... :roll: Does this happen in the US?
