Crackleport here..Reporting from Blighty.
I have more news on our continual rummaging in amongst the 'Lost Treasures of Crackleport'. I came across the front end of one of my old racing machines. It used to be part of a YDS7 250cc Yamaha that I won many motorcycle sprints on. In fact 1 year I won the National Sprint Association 250cc Production class on the bike. Notice the period fitment of an extremely valuable pair of 'Bacon Slicers' ! (must post a picture of the Yam in action)
Close inspection shows that the stem will need modification to fit the chosen steering head. I'll keep you posted on how this works in practice after I check on bearing availability.
Also this week we have news of possible sponsorship from an 'Oilyracer blog Fan' At this point first contact has been made and an invite into the inner sanctum of Picklington Motorsickle Co H.Q. will follow. All I can say at this point is the offer to make/provide a part so pivitol to our success is very exciting news and must be treat with secrecy until finalised.
This coming weekend Albert is away racing so no further progress expected for a few days.
