The Classic Longtrack Masters was very testing in THE  WET for my SC 500...........could have done with a Knobby on the rear.....



In the Pre 75 my bike was HONKING out of the gate, but VERY greasy conditions, made it hell in the corners......









Special thanks to Bill MacFarlane for the great photos.........https://fotenx.smugmug.com/

Thanks for the pics, Dennis, However !! The # 786 Longtracker is Les Lewis' bike, powered originally by a TR, TD ? 350 road racing engine, now a 250, and built by Charlie Edwards. Nigel Boocock rode it at the Bendigo half mile in 1975 and won the meeting on it. Charlie and Nigel took it to England for the  Grass-track meetings over there, the Poms promptly banned it !! The Bryant Special  you refer to was there, Cliffy Patton rode the giant killing 125cc twin Longtracker in the races. The sound of Les' twin when he gave it some stick was delightful !! Great pics mate !! Les told me the gearing that he was running on the day was Morgan Mile gearing, a bit long for the 610 metre Fairbairn circuit !!!

Here's Booey and Charlie with the bike in it's original guise, carrying Charlie's #789 back in the '70s



And here's Doug Bryant, Wayne Bryant and KP with the 125 Twin at the meeting

it was only sideways in one pic, grip looks excellent .... :o :D :D

Believe me, it was SLIPPERY on top and with the VERY PEAKY power of the SC 500, I couldn't really open the throttle hard until I got it straightened up........hence, not much sideways........LOL !!......in the OLD days on oil it was much easier.......these days I can't really hook in until the tracks dry out a little......Very Frustrating at times......
Here's a shot from Nepean, earlier this year, when the track is dry. ;D ;D ;) ;)

True enough.........however, already running 2 head gaskets.........#55 Dennis Whilesmith said his 250 was quicker than his 360 on the day......
