It has been no minor undertaking, this project. I am avoiding adding up my personal outlay thus far, which would be far greater but for the generosity of parts that have been gifted, loaned or given for the cause.

Over the past seven months a combined effort has taken this 30-year-old smoker out of the back of Fast Bikes’ workshop where it has been in boxes for five years. The plan to build, test, then race this bike in the final round of the Yamaha Past Masters (YPM) series at Snetterton has moved steadily along.
