saltster LSR panther

im helping a mate out getting his panther together for racing

single engine but fun none the less. im lending him my race motor for the first meeting just to save him having to deal with that on top of everything else

jig is completed now so im ready to start bending some tubes

standard panther rigid frame geometry [so really short wheelbase - not ideal for racing but nearly period correct ha]. laser profiled axle plates with the same profile as the original cast plates, set up to take full width hub wheel axle and spacers complete out of a swingarm.

i might make a couple more if it goes easily...

pendine land speed racing 2013

i did a logo for the pendine land speed racing club the other day

the meeting is officially on now and im looking forwards to it massively

the plan is to run the stump puller dual engine panther there. fingers crossed everything goes on schedule for me. would make for a hel of a first meeting

mark the date - june 20/23rd its looking like it'll be a blinder, lets hope we can make it yearly

33 panther oil pump

old bikes are sent to try us.... but if it was easy everyone would do it

i got the 33 panther running on xmas day. the oil pump packed in pumping 3 days later and screwed things

sooo, this weekend i grabbed a more modern pump [bottom one] out of the spares pile, but they have different oil routing so modified it so it should work fine

but that leaves a big hole in the engine case that the pump adjuster would go on the 1933 motor. i could have just made a bung and be done with it but i had a hour or 2 to kill so i made dummy adjuster so it looks right. couple of o-rings and it fits nice

so new pump fitted and done, now just need to sort barrel and piston and i should be good to go again hopefully

safe sailing, please

waiting on the philadelphia express to land in sunny old england in a couple of weeks, its got my bike on it so fingers crossed for a nice smooth crossing
