    Hi Matey
    Still dont know what you thought of it as a 750 compared to the old 850 lump.
    Your videos are getting better & better.
    One day I must try to actually get round that circuit.

    all the best Chris

    I don't think my friends and relatives believe me when I tell them that I can raise my pulse rate anytime I want to.
    If I imagine myself being staged on the starting line of a dirt track with 10 other guys that all are going to try to get to the same 3' wide spot in the first corner, the flagman points at each one of us, we all nod, then he points up to the light.
    By then my heart is racing. Sitting on your gas tank while you dice on pavement does something very similar.
    Keep up the good work.

    Steve if I thought I could fiddle Geddine this year I would. I spoke to Peter & he said all was well with you & Poppy. Glad to hear that. I hope you are enjoying your racing in France. Working on the bikes for Donington, parade only.
    One day
    All the best Chris

    Lots of gear changes on that circuit. In Australia most circuits have at least two fairly long straights which make gearing not so easy. Long straights suit more powerful bikes. With a Seeley commando, if you gear for the tight stuff, often you have not got the legs down the straights. I think you guys are very lucky to get to race on circuits like Anglesey. It would be a great leveller.

    Ralph, if you are looking for Interstate bits, I have a tank, seat & side covers. Some slight damage to the tank, probably needs a repaint but no rust. Seat is reasonable apart from a small tear. Side covers in goodish shape.
    If you want a set in 100% condition then this is not for you though.
    I can send some photos showing the dodgy bits if you are interested.

    You don't by change have a Roadster tank & seat do you?
