I found this old one from the 70s when I was riding either a BSA 250 C15 or just got my first Triumph, a T100.
On the wall is John Webley's Cheltenham Motorcycle Road Race poster as seen in his post. I went there with my mate, peteberr on here, he was riding a Honda CB250K.

And now
Is that a bit of a Spencer rep thing going on there with the CB9/750 you are by?
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....

Bought a job lot of 3 bikes about 4 years ago - cb750F2 Bol Dor, CB900 FA and the bike you see in the pic - a CB1100F with a 900 engine that had WISECO 985 Kit on. The latter was in bits (inc top end of engine) and I rebuilt it as a Spencer Rep. It had CBR 600 wheels/brakes, a box section swing arm, Laverda Jota forks and billet yokes. Sold it straight away at a good profit that funded the K2 build, (broke the 900 as it was rough and sold the 750 Bol Do Jap import to a guy in IOM)
Spencer Rep was a great bike to ride

Great looking Spencer rep Phil, that's a keeper.
This is me in 1981 on my 2 valve Jawa speedway bike at the old Milton Keynes training track at Elfield Park. I used to train here and at Iwade in Kent. I used to train at Wimbledon under the guidance of Malcom Simmons. I remember once racing against a very young and talented Kelvin Tatum, a very gifted racer. Kelvin went onto achieve greatness, I achieved retirement a couple of years after, crashing hurts when there's no brakes to slow you down!

I used to go there every week, and do a bit of grass tracking myself, it only took 15 minutes to get there from my house, banger racing too.
