Plus riding a ‘liberated’ Vincent, – you’ll have to buy the mag for more on that one! – an explanation of ‘wet sumping’ and what can be done to minimise it, and we get up close with Pat Rantin’s immaculately converted Sunbeam S7, which currently houses a full race Buell V-twin engine! Such is Pat’s engineering expertise, the bike looks like it’s just rolled off a production line, unlike some of the Lego lookalikes we come across.
Also in this issue, Alan Cathcart interviews Italian ace Giacomo Agostini about the MV3 and Ago candidly explains how Hailwood’s 250 Honda Six was much faster than the MV but handled like a camel, unlike the sweet-natured MV Agusta, which made the races between the two stars so entertaining.
Plus all the usual regulars, archive material, columnists, classifieds and Louise Limb's latest handiwork. On sale now!
