good pix all the same - if you have any Roy East stuff ....
The bike is the one he campaigned in Europe in 58 / 59 then brought back to Au late 59, was sold to someone for half of 1960 then bought late in 1960 by Gordon Marks until I bought it in 2002.
sadly Im starting now the engine installation and extracting useable parts from bent and broken crap after the blow up, I have about 200 broken bits of alloy that got collected from the track - going to make a hot glue motor out of that. The piston is on the Fat boy Tasmania wall of shame!
Engine will be in today.

When I was riding Huskies back in the day I had the pleasure of chatting to Roy East and Hans Applegren,true Gentleman who had all the time in the world to talk about the finer points of setting up the bikes for racing.
