Re: Ian Wright’s 475cc road and track bike

I’m going on holiday and it isn’t yet daytime MoT’d…

But if you can make it to Paignton bike night (Devon) on Wednesday 1 September (and it isn’t wet), I will be there on it now it is mine.

Re: Rolling chassis

Sorry. No longer needed as I appear to have had a mad eBay session and bought a rolling chassis for my Terry Shepherd motor to go in…

As a spare.

If needed.

Cos I bought Ian Wright’s 475 road/track bike… 😬

PMs

Do PMs sit in "Outbox" until picked up or am I doing something wrong?

Apologies to a few people who I definitely did wrong to as my sent items was full. But now I have cleared some space but still nothing seems to 'send'... :?

Re: Rolling chassis

No rush on anything (Its been a decade now…) but all potential offers will be considered. I just don’t call round here every day so might take a few days to reply.

Re: Rolling chassis

Hi, Welcome back to the site. Does it have to be a registered frame? I bought a rolling chassis off Mat Grant yonks ago when he built his NS/RGV hybrid but he kept the registration. Still got most of it minus fork leg, not looking for stupid money. Thought I would just throw in another option! Jeff...

Re: Rolling chassis

Got the motor and carbs and electrics and all bodywork/tank but no seat and thats about it. Once I get the rest I know what exhausts I want. Need chassis, wheels etc. I *could* go with using the RVF front and rear in an NS chassis, but for now and given previous experience am starting with the basic...

Re: Shepherd 500cc motor

Still (potentially) for sale. Before you complain it looks old, remember its a 35 year old engine with new internals that you can’t see in the photos.

“Ooh. It looks dusty so I don’t want it anymore” (without coming to inspect as offered) says more about you than me.

Re: Rolling chassis

I’m amenable to do a trade and cash. The DRZ-E is still on French plates so I’d say thats £1500 (its in very good mechanical nick, but been used hard - gotta be worth £2500-3000 on a UK plate) towards the deal. In exceptional circumstances I might even px my RXV450. One of only 4 or 5 still UK regis...

Rolling chassis

If I can’t sell the refurbished 500 motor, then I need a frame to put it in. Im not paying the stupid eBay £1500 for one with no paperwork, but I’ll pay good money (but lets not get silly, I’m not doing this for an investment, i just want to ride it) for an NS with a ****** or no motor. Anyone selli...

Re: Shepherd 500cc motor

Can’t remember the exact spec, but the Shepherd kit consisted of bored & ported barrels and has modified heads that run TZ single o-rings instead of head gaskets. Photo attached of heads after vapour blasting. I have photos of cylinders before and after cleaning but jot sure you’d be able to spot th...

Shepherd 500cc motor

Hi all. Long time, no see. One day I will chronicle all that happened with my bike. The short version is that, despite the builder perjuring himself in court, despite him admitting lying, despite him claiming Ian Wright had colluded with me to commit fraud and being proved to be a liar. Despite many...
