Rotary Bikes at Rotorstock III 2006
« on: January 13, 2006, 12:53:00 AM »
It looks like we may have this beauty at Rotorstock III.
It was built in 1989 by a guy from St Neots. It is a replica of the 1989 air cooled Norton race bike but it was built for the road and is road legal !!! Power output is about 130 bhp. It now resides in Lincoln.
See picture below. Bike Magazine got non other than works rider Trevor Nation to road test it (thats Trevor sitting on the bike).

\'a man cresh\'... good description  :D
I had hoped (and have previously mentioned on here) that a friend might be bringing a pre-JPS liveried factory race bike (like the one pictured) along. The bike is undergoing a complete re-build and unfortuately it doesnt look like its going to be done in time, it should be at RS4 though. So, everything crossed for the JPS replica.

Hi Derek

Just wanted to know if you guys will be attending RSIII so that we can allocate an area to you.

If you are attending, how many do you think will be coming along.

Hope you can all make it.

regards
REgards

Hiya Lisa
I think i was a bit too optimistic last year, dont you? 5 bikes in 12 car parking spaces!!  Me and Geoff will be there as usual (possibly Sunday & Monday / maybe just Monday.. will have to check with Geoff) and hopefully Mark with the JPS replica (ive sent him a reminder). One or two other \'maybes\'. I dont hold out much hope for a big turnout (i despair!!). Much of the problem is that the Rotary (Motorcycle) Owners Club attend a Classic Bikes event at Stanford Hall on the Sunday.
Do i need to send a cheque to reserve the space? Will we be in the same place? Looking forward to it!! See you all soon.

Hi Norton

Thanks

Clive has advised that you do not need to make payment for the Bikes, however we are raising monies for Cancer Research so you may want to make a donation at RS.

Not sure about the aloocation of the area.  We are currently looking at this when all clubs etc have regsitered.

Look forward to seeing you there.

regards

You \'hope\' to be there Ian?  :xconfused you move heaven & earth m8!!
Yes, we will be there Monday, still not sure about Sunday (still waiting for a decision from my track rival). I see that there is a lot more RWYB time on Sunday.
