Phils 160cc Bantam “Josie” 1959

Originally raced in the 70’s & 80’s by Josie Curtis. Passed on to Phil by Trevor Johnston on the condition it is passed on again when Phil stops racing it. Bored out from a 125 this bike has won the 175 championship for the last two years running, first with Phil riding, and last season with me at the controls.

My 250 Two Valve Rudge Sport 1934

Originally raced for 20 years by the late Tim Johnston, who lent the bike to me when I first started racing in 2003. After his death on the Isle of Man I brought the bike. Finished 6th place in the pre 62, 250cc championship 2007. This is the bike I eventually want to win the championship on.

1934 Rudge with a 1935 two valve head
Alloy wheels with bearing conversion and banding on the drums
Amal TT carb
Bigger inlet valve and tract
Runs on Methanol to keep the cast iron barrel cool
Avon race tyres
Straight through exhaust at the moment although I may have to fit a silencer soon due to noise restrictions, it only just scrapes through the 105 dB limit

Rudge 250cc Two Valve Sport 1934

This is the bike I have built from scratch as a spare and tester, and it was used in several races last year by Phil and myself. Frame and main engine parts are pre 1934, with the exception of the two valve head which is 1935. New wheels built around original hubs and drums, alloy rims, stainless spokes, banded drums for strength and cooling, sealed bearing conversion.

BTH mag
Amal TT carb
One off high comp piston which I found in a box of bits so will have to come up with something else when that one goes.
Straight through exhaust
Similar performance to the other Rudge
For the 2008 season I am racing the BSA C15 in the 250 championship and the other Rudge in the pre 34 class. It is unlikely that this bike will get out on the track for the coming season
