Pete is a great fabricator. He does my dyno work. These are shots of Red Molly, their side car racer at Barber:

OK I admit defeat. What is the tank at the front of the chair for? They have a fuel tank under the platform and it is too low to be a header tank for the fuel.

I guess you are correct. What fooled me was the small diameter of the top pipe but if that is just a breather then the other two pipes are probably feed and return. Thanks.

Anyone got a good picture of Thommos 4 valve head Vincent outfit either with the very fast 600 single or the twin engine?
he has ruffeled the feathers at some BHRC meetings last season
Great stuff!

Met Peter and Denise at the Vermont N.A. Rally. The outfit was just finished and unpainted. Looks really good now.

Their latest one has, and about 186 horsepower from 1600 cc's @ 6800 rpm and 142 ft/ lb's of torque from what i've read, hopefully I should be seeing it this coming weekend at the Philip Island classic, along with a huge lineup of top machinery.....I think Agostini will be there as well, riding an MV of course, after the event i'll try and load up some photo's for you all......Cheers.....Greg.

I have raced with USCRA, as has Carleton Palmer, which is a New Hampshire based racing organization. They are quite strong in sidecar racing and a small group recently went to Phillips Island to race (2014). Pete and Denise brought their Vincent side car "Red Molly" and Bob Demetrius bought his Ducati and BMW side car bikes and Dave Roper brought his Harley 350cc. I believe there are some photos in this video from the event:

Yes the visual impact of sidecar racing especially the big wheel vs morgan of the BHR is the most gripping racing you will ever see.
Puts Formula 1,Moto GP and (dare I say it?) Daytona into the long grass.
You are hearby requested not to tell the popular media, let them stick to ball games.
