Great to see a photo of Jim Gibson, he is an old mate of mine, the last time I saw him was about 6 years ago and he was running something a little more exotic, a 500 ROC Yamaha V4 no less!!

That 175 Yamaha was his own creation and consisted of half a TZ350 engine, he had quite a lot of success with it.

That's it Eric, a lovely piece of kit.

 

Jim had it on the island a few years ago for a parade lap, I hadn't seen him for about 25 years and bumped into him by chance in the paddock so we had a good old catch up.

 

I used to buy a lot of my TZ parts from Jim, and also fairings when he ran his moulding business.

I've seen him a couple of times at the Jurby Festival.Always generates a lot of interest.

 

I didn't realise how many photos I'd taken all those years ago,so I'll keep posting them for as long as I can,although it's getting a bit harder to find the ones that are worth putting on.I've still got a few left though.I wish I'd taken more over the years now.Never bothered between 1971 to 1979 and from 1981 until about 3 years ago.

No,it's just the way the photo turned out.It was taken at Flookburgh which is an old airfield,so the surface was tarmac although it wasn't the smoothest.

I thought it was worth bumping a few of these old threads up to the top again, some of the photos may have gone but a lot are still here, plus the old programmes, might be of interest for any new forum members to have a look at.

Indeed Paul, there is so much stuff to be explored on this forum for anyone who cares (or who have the time!) to browse the back pages.

There are now 44 PAGES of topics going back to 2002 - and at 30 topics per page, I make that 1320 TOPICS - yes, thats just topics - to pour over  :eek: !

Easily accessed by hitting the "Motorcycle Racing Nostalgia" tab at the top and bottom of the page.

No, it wasn't quite that bad but that shot is the exit of the fastest corner on the track, the left after the start/finish, I became closely acquainted with that earth bank, May '79, smashed my TZ to bits.

I finally got around to properly scanning these images taken at Croft in early 1980, it must have been an early meeting as i'm so cold i'm wearing a jacket over my leathers, but then again that could have been mid July from what I remember of the climate up there!! :lol:

Most have been up before but only as very poor photos of photos.

Gregg & Glenn, feel free to use these on Croft FB page if you wish.

Yes an unfortunate blend of designs that day with the jacket too!! I was never a Phil Read fan, and I was only wearing the lid as a local dealer gave it to me after i'd smashed mine at Carnaby and couldnt afford another, he took pity on me and said as he was struggling to shift the Read reps he would donate one to me, I should have taken it home and painted it really!!
