The frame worked extremely well--- ran straight as. The Weslake should be the same.
Its a '92RS 125 Honda.
I'll send the ignition off to be checked and then have two good engines.
cheers Bones

The first triumph he walked past was running like a dog and after his help and recomendations there first run was straight to impound and resulted in a record . later that night a lady came by and photographed mine and wayne pickles teeshirts and in the conversation mentioned that hubby was stressed as his triumph was not happy .We arranged to meet the next day in the pits and phil put another bike into impound which resulted in a sidecar record going to our new canadian friends , richard and daniella . He sure was a hit and was staying on for BUB so i'm sure there are more stories to tell

Unbeknown to phill I put a post on the landracing site for BUB . "attention in the pits " telling people to find phill, usually in a coat and with waterbottles hanging from each pocket , and get him on to your bike .
I spoke with phill on his return and asked him about BUB . his coment was people are really friendly "are you phill " they would say and "will you touch my bike " , I couldn't work it out they had heard of me from the internet .
As an asside at speedweek he was celebrating with the Lowbrow customs team for there 113 record when they asked what speed phill had achieved in australia for the same class , 127 he replied ,
