New recruit arrived this week. '86 Slabside GSXR1100, frame originally done for Jack Frost (Holeshot Racing) then raced by Craig Mallabone until it blew up in 2004. At that time i bought the remains of the 1340 engine which i ran in Ugly Betty. The bike was later used by Shane Wogan in Ireland with its current Wayne Little big block motor until a couple of years ago. Most of the parts in the current motor came from me at the time.
Having been stood for a while it needs a bit of a freshen up and a paint job but hopefully first outing should be at Kirkbride at the beginning of April. First job is to convert it back to right hand drive, Shane lost his right arm a few years back so operates everything with his left hand. He currently races a Turbo Hayabusa, competitively !
