Still ride your CB750? The King- progenitor- of modern in-line fours? There's a reason-challenged genius of an Englishman who takes CB750, CBX, Z1000 engines and carves V-8s and V-12s out of them for running street bikes. Perhaps he goes to The Ace. Chap's a nuclear scientist, would you believe it?
No i don't ride it anymore as i had that motorcycle when i was in UK. A lovely bike it was, and if i might add, my first proper motorcycle.

Yes i have read about that Englishman and his projects, but bad memory makes me forget his name.

Memory??? I'm in the same boat, Monsieur.
My first real bike is/was a Honda CBR 919 RR Fireblade and I sold it just a few days ago. Broke me heart.

I certainly hope to be there some day with my Triumph. A friend of mine has been there in the past, and returned with a nifty sticker for his Ariel, which can just about be seen circled in this pic.

Lovely, Sir. Thanks. The Triumph stirs the juices for me like none else as I too owned one many moons ago. It was a 1941 ex WD OHV 350 single and was my first bike. Loved that machine dearly. Tuned it myself too.

Please post some more pics of your Edwin Turner's Genius.

Oh, what a relief. Thanks, Sir. Millyard it is. Another bloke used to craft entirely NEW ground up ancient exotic wheels like the Norton Manx etc for the Princely sum of 20K GBP, and I'm talking 15 odd years back. Don't know if he's still around. He used modern materials and techniques so they were reportedly oil-tight, and more powerful, and I once dreamed of getting rich enough to order a spanking new BSA Gold Star.
