Hi I am new to the forum just found site

I raced 50ccs for a couple of years from 1961 then 125/250s

I have had in my shed for about 20 yrs what I was told is the 50 Derbi that Barry Smith won the 68 TT on.

I now think it may have the wrong engine as i think the TT bike was a disc valve ane mine is not.

I may restore the bike but have several other projects not started including a 60s 125 TSS Baultaco.

Photos ot any info on the Derbi would be good

I spoke to Barry in the Island many years ago and he called the bike the Angilo Nieto(12+1 world champion) replica.

Have tried to conntact Barry recently through the Welbec Hotel in Douglas were he stays when over ,but no success.
