So no one knows approximately how many Seelys were made?

My friend Craig did the basic engine installation, and then I did a lot of the detail work, including the extra frame bracing. The bike's owner said the bracing firmed up the handling noticeably
There was a really fast A grader used to ride a Seeley G50, told me that he felt the Mk 3 was wandering in the front end. I use a single gusseted piece of chrome moly pushbike tube in the front of mine, and it always feels positive and nimble.
Ugh, Martin I mean how much do these Seeley's weigh by themselves. I keep seeing claims a big Seeley advantage is weight savings over the iso frame so would like to know how much they weigh as I know what Combat frames weigh. Of course a solid frame will handle better than un-tamed isolastics but the fastest bikes in the world now make frames flex for side loads on purpose, so maybe Seeley ain't all that better that way either. Do the Seeley flex detectability?marinatlas » Tue Jan 15, 2013 10:55 pm
Hi Steve , I had the figure once, but forgot it ( age ?) , but nearly the same as the Commando which is a light frame as you know it....but as it got less ancillaries (isolastic,z plates,and so on ...) the final is far less heavier, including most people fit alloy jugs, belt drive , alloy rims, alloy tanks..........
Although grandpaul may be a member of AHRMA, I want it to be clear that grandpaul does not speak for nor does he represent AHRMA.grandpaul said:One more interesting tidbit for those who are offended by certain racing organization's view of history - AHRMA doesn't necessarily limit bikes to '72 and older, they can be newer as long as they are "like design".
AHRMA's policy is that the RACERS police themselves when it comes to class compliance. Round up 100 old guys that want to race their homebrews and ask them to rule out other competitor's bikes that they believe aren't "like designs", or otherwise don't conform to the exact "letter of the law". I believe there's a fella that's been posting in this thread that might make a few "friends" in a big hurry.
