I love these CMRC shots, wish I could afford a TZ, sold my 250E to Neil Tuxworth in '87 for £575, I believe he sold it in bits.

Been meaning to mention, Gra, how much we appreciate your excellent set of pics from the CRMC series. And while I'm at it, I don't agree at all with those sad sacks grumbling about mufflers and the disappearance of 19" wheels etc diluting the impact of current classic racing. Sharpen up, people ! The bikes currently on the track may differ in philosophy and design intricacies from Ye Olden Days, but at least you still have the opportunity to get along and watch Manxes battle with G50s and Goldies on England's scratchy short circuits. Yes, the noise police and the greenies etc have all had their say, but you can still see bikes that fired you up 50 years ago going for it hammer and tongs, how many forms of motorsport can claim that ?
My advice is to get out from behind the keyboard, and get trackside for a couple of meetings next season. When the likes of Barry Sheene, Wayne Gardner, Ryan Farquhar, Cameron Donald, Jeremy McWilliams and plenty more have discovered the thrill of getting stuck into the classic bikes over the last few seasons, and mixing it up with the established guns, we're all winners. Bangers hard at it, just like Way Back When !
PS : Mufflers or not, they STILL sound great ! :drunk:


You would make a good condom salesman, Glenn. We all know it ain't the same. Clearly it's a different story if you're out their having a thrash around, but the sight of so many pot belied old geezers dwarfing their little muffled bikes, kinda sullies the old memory for some of us sad sack spectators.

You fire right ahead son, they are excellent and we're very fortunate to have you share them.

Jim Agombar is racing in Australia these days, and is racing a lovely Bakker TZ for Martin Norman of Hyside Trading. He had four sets of ignition on the TZ at the recent historic nats in Tasmania trying to trace a fault, but is normally right up the sharp end. Nice bloke, too.

Hi Graham,

By CRMC does that also mean Vintage Club/IHRO meetings, and within that criteria of modern classic meetings? If so I have managed to attend quite a few of these meetings and have quite a few images myself. Just quickly, I have two that I took at Cadwell for the Beezumph which will include Dave Aldana eventually etc and both solos and sidecars and will post more as I sort through if they comply with the topic.

This looks like Michael Brown's 175 Bantam Graham, not sure if it's him actually riding it though

correction, i think it's Robbie brown, Michaels dad on his 175 bantam.
