I thought I’d share this. There are lots of casting videos on you tube but I really like the work that ‘Myfordboy’ does, as he shows the entire process through pattern making, core layout, casting, machining and the final object (normally a model engine of some kind) working. Absolutely brilliant.
Andy from Performance Engineering uploaded this video of the dyno test last Wednesday. I think it sounds great!
I just happened upon this:
Tommy Hatch came 3rd in the senior TT on a Scott on this year. The last time a Scott took such a high position in that event.
Tommy wasn’t riding the only Scott in this event and a couple of Scotts can be seen waiting for their turn to start.
I saw this yesterday whilst I was researching the brazing I needed to get done on my Silk Scott frame.
I saw this today. Well worth watching. At the end it says that one of the Indians was timed at 212kph. That’s over 130mph. Try and get your head around that whilst watching it!
I’ve seen this countless times… Schwantz’s last minute braking manoeuvres. Wayne Rainey power wheelying up the inside into the corners. Racing on raw 500cc two strokes from the late eighties and beginning of the 1990s.
I have a soft spot for horizontally mounted singles. Especially the Aermacchi Ala d’oro and the Motobi racing machines built by Primo Zanzani. There’s a great video about him and the Motobi machines.. but it’s in Italian! Please someone subtitle it!
Anyway, here’s the video.
made I believe by Borders Television back in the Early 1980s.
