This video goes to show that you don’t need a big shed to create some amazing things. I love the fact that each engine is built one at a time, truly handbuilt with not a production line in sight.
If you enjoy Classic Road Racing then you will absolutely love this video, its a great short film about the 2012 Belgian Classic TT… Enjoy.
The 2012 Island Classic delivered an incredible weekend of close racing, perfect weather and a huge entry list made for an unforgettable event.
Over the next few days I will be featuring some of the amazing machines from this event. A bike that is pretty well known all around the world is the Australian built Irving Vincent. I have seen this bike in action many times and it still stands out as real matserpiece. The build quality, performance and sound of the Vincent are absolutely astounding.
The bike pictured here is built to race in the Period 5 category and see’s it competing against some very fast 4 cylinder Japanese superbikes. This is a tough ask for a big V-twin based on a motor designed in the 50′s to be competitive against the more modern machines but HP and speed are two things that this bike certainly isn’t lacking.
There is much more to come from this event so be sure to check back throughout the week.
M&M have done a great job with this little Bultaco Metralla racer, the tank, the paint, the clean lines, everything comes together really nicely. Going by some of the pictures on the M&M blog its no garage queen either!

Kenny Cummings has built one of the nicest looking classic racers I have ever seen. This bike has evolved through many incarnations into the beautifully refined bike shown above. I have followed the story of this bike on Kenny’s site for years now, a great read that I’d highly recommend. The bike is a 1968 Seeley MK2 replica, with a highly modified Norton Commando motor fitted. The bike goes as well as it looks and Kenny has 3 consecutive National BEAR’s titles to prove it.
Many thanks to Kenny for allowing us to post these images.
