Numerous Speedway and Grass track racers were built as specials by owner/riders for themselves, and sometimes for friends. For many years the popular engine of choice was the J.A.P. This dominance continued for decades until the advent of other engines in the 1960s and 70s. In the smaller (250cc) class, in the 1960s and70s, many competitors turned to the compact BSA C15 and B25 engines which were in plentiful supply. This machine utilises a B25SS engine from 1971 in a frame manufactured by its late owner. Featuring an AMC gearbox, it was used for racing during the 1960s/70s by the deceased owner. Stored for many years, it will require re-commissioning or restoration. There are no documents with this lot.
