His early motorsport involvement was in motor cycle racing. I'm no bike expert, so I might have got some of this wrong, but I understand that he had quite a lot of success with a Velocette KTT destroked from 350 to 250. This ran with a twin cam head designed and built by Ben.
This machine shows up a little on Google, but I'm wondering whether anyone here can turn up any photos, or more info. Also does anyone know if this machine still exists?
