I used to live 30 minutes from that track and have run a whole lot of laps around it

Guess what they call this turn,, yup the House Turn I'm leading the Supertwins race here


I had to add some vintage to stay on topic.


I'll scan some pictures from the 80's up there, oh the great memories of Laconia.....

I remember seeing these bikes (or ones just like them) on the track. Look closely at the front brakes. The calipers were attached to carriers that pivoted near the wheel axle. Behind the calipers there were struts that went up and attached to the bottom triple clamp.
When the rider grabbed the front brake lever, the caliper carrier was forced upwards by the rotor rotation. This would in turn push upwards on the triple clamp and keep the fork from diving.
Primitive but effective anti-dive.

Can't help you there.

I did 2 seasons with AAMRR in '78 and '79 in modprod and F3 (IIRC). Ran at NH and Bridgehampton.

The old NH track ("Briar Motorsport Park") was a dust bowl- pretty primitive. Nothing like NHMS now.

Tracks on track: Track conditions were not always the best in those early days. This is Graeme Crosby in 1977.

Yes ... crowd control/armco was a piece of twine! But these were New Zealanders.

In the mean time, could you post up a few picture of the bike in it's current state. Looking forward to reading about the beasty.
