57x I trial fit the Muzzy race exhaust. I love those curves.

57x I'm getting ever so much closer. Just a few more spaces from the machinist. Then I move on to electrical.

It is tempting to run mine. I also wish we could see a bunch of these on track again. I started up the Crevier bike, so no reason not to crank this one over. I'll start harassing some people I know with other brands of Superbike. Barber makes the most sense, and will be much closer to me if I make the move I an planning to Texas.
I would like to see it happen as well. I bought one of Pete's bikes last year(the ex Steve Griggs bike) looking for lightweight rims to replace the 16.5" Marvics on it so I can stick some good rubber on it for a track session or two. Christian
I have a set of 17" Magnesium Marchesini 10 spokes if you want to make them fit. Let me know. Not period correct, but gets you out there.

Thanks! I am very lucky. I'm not a racer. I'm a mid-pack B Group rider, but love building stuff. I had a few friends that set me up with this and I'm running with it. I'm enjoying the heck out of restoring this and the Crevier bike I finished last year.
KLS was crazy expensive in the day, and so unreliable the teams had to add a kill switch to disable it if it wiggled out. We are so spoiled by inexpensive technology today, me included, as I run my H2 SX on the street, and my S1000RR and GSXR750 on the track with tons of features standard.

Hammerhead Last time I went to Indy MotoGP, the crowd numbered 50,000. At Barber last year, there were over 70,000. AHRMA has a class for almost every non-current racebike. A delight last year was seeing several machines in the Phillip Island class, air-cooled factory GP-spec bikes with huge engines such as the Suzuki X69. Also, AHRMA has been chosen to represent the International Sidecar Racing Assn. There should be a bunch of those. Nearly 20 showed up at GingerMan, about half vintage and half GP-spec including 3 machines that had raced at the Isle of Man.

Barber would be perfect showcase for all you guys with restored Superbikes.

hopware Thanks for the pictures, good to see motoexotica from the dark ages of carburetors. Nice of Muzzy and Ferracci to sell their race bikes at the end of the season. That didn't happen with Honda and Yamaha, not sure about Yosh. Unfortunately, over the years the stuff gets broken, destroyed, or parted out. Glad you're making progress.

57x They require a other specialty parts:
Factory crank (mine is altered order firing)
Factory head, modded
Modded cylinders
Custom cam gears
Probably other crap I'm forgetting

hopware The collector fabrication on your Ti header is way cool. I'm guessing it's late production WSB or endurance. Have any images of the legendary gear drive for the cams? That is mythical unobtainium. The billet 6 piston Nissin calipers that are on mine, are something of an anomaly. I don't recall seeing them on any other superbike back in the day. Very sexy with the Ti nitrided pistons.

Slorg442 What an awesome build. Can't wait to see the finished product.

57x I'm going to cry when I put the fairings on and hide that gorgeous exhaust
