In my garage, I have the following:

 

1.1956 Triumph Speed Twin 500cc preunit motor bike.

 

2. 1965 Triumph 5TA Speed Twin 500cc unit construction bike.

 

Both of these bikes have been restored from the ground up.

 

They take me back to my teenage days many years ago. I have told my better half that should I go first from off this planet to motorbike heaven, the bikes are to be put down the hole in the earth with me so that I can dream about riding them.

 

(True Story) Recently a chap in the USA who owned a vintage Harley Davison bike arranged with his sons before he died to have him sitting upright on the motorbike which is the way he wanted to be buried. The undertaker therefore placed a steel rod in the deceaseds back so that he could sit upright on the bike underground.

Hi Jl,. . . . . we have a couple of French pilots who call in from time to time, Clive who lives Pred LaRochelle, and Alan, who is a Retired Brit,. . .living somewhere aproximitie Chartres I think,. . . probably wrong. . . Clive flies a 3 axis, and Alan is a confirmed Paramoteur pilot. . . . I like both of these, but I only have about 9 hrs on Paramoteur, but have problems breaking the undercarriage. . . . a few years on Trike/ Weightshift, and the rest of my life on stick and rudder. . . .just getting the hang of that one.

Welcome to the Forum. send us some pics of your bicyclettes du moteur ( as you can see,. . .my command of the French language is really terrifique. . . . . or was that merde,. . . I forget. . . [ ! ] )

Hi, in my garage, I seriously have a 1958 model 32cc Cyclemaster Winged Wheel, race-tuned, and now capable of a hair-raising 40km per hour without even peddling.

 

Can you even immagine the problems in trying to cope with so much power?

Struth Planey,. . . . . with power like that you'd need a hanky under your nosebleed caused by the raBid acceleration. . . . .

 

My mate Adrian from down at the Henhouse ( pub ),. . . has a genuine Raleigh 49cc "MO-PED" circa 1955/6 ish,. . . . I've ridden that thing, but even if you pedal it hard at the same time as the application of full warp drive,. . . it wouldn't be as powerful as your winged wheel. . . . .as it isn't race tuned. . . . .

That would be the Raleigh Whisp. My mate in Faversham Kent has restored two of them and plans riding to Portugal on one later this summer.

 

His rear-end must be made of tougher hide than mine.082_scooter.gif.e6a62d295b0b59b8276038871473d864.gif

I mentioned the Raleigh Whisp to Adrian last night, but he says his is the "Runabout" model which used to be used extensively by the British Post Office Posties, although it was called the GPO in them thar days. . . he's not certain if the Whisp model came after the Runabout, but isn't sure as he doesn't know what cubic capacity the engine had on that. . . Maybe Wiki would have a listing. . .
