Al I built that bike over 30 years ago and never had any handling issues. I'm in regular contact with the current owner of the same bikeThe motor in this bike is in the wrong position. If you rode it really fast through a high speed bend, it would scare you and destroy your confidence. The motor needs to be as far forward and down as possible in the featherbed frame. The position of the motor is the reason that a 500cc Manx is better for racing than any Triton.
and he has never mentioned any handling issues, but of course we are not experienced racers.
