Here's a Honda RC148 firing up at Goodwood.  Check out the tach - reads to 22,000 and the bike is reved to 20,000+.  The sound of this 125cc 5 cylinder is incredible.

Enjoyed Dave Croxford video.

 

Just found  this video of Evel Knievel's jump attempt of 13 buses in London 1975.

Couldn't resist putting this on, remember when I use to watch 60's scrambles on TV.

I don't think this has been posted before. Oulton mid 60s by the look of it.

BRNO Paddock 1965, its silent other than background music, but you can still feel the atmosphere   ;)

Great find Paul :up:

Lots going on in that paddock. All the riders and their families mucking in together just like a club meeting - only they are the top GP riders of the day!

Many were kipping in the back of their good old Thames vans no doubt too! The camaraderie really comes accross - all so different to the corporate scene of today.

True, it appears to be compulsary to hate every other rider these days, one of the reasons Casey Stoner gave for quitting.

Good to see my old mate Tinks in the thick of it there, and it's lucky Foggy wasn't injured in the fall, as the way the marshal got hold of him and hauled him out of the way could have caused all kinds of problems!! we tend to forget how much things have changed for the better in recent years, with marshal training and a greater awareness of things such as oil being down.

Interesting to hear the World Series politics also being discussed before and after the race.

Yes very interesting indeed. I had it in my mind that the world Series happened in 1980.

 

Anyway, since Barry Sheene is interviewed here, I came across this :
