More pictures from Chimay Classic Bikes 2014. This time mostly of machinery to be seen in the paddock area.
|Konig two-stroke flat four GP racer. An outside contender|
giant killer of the late sixties / early seventies. The motor
was developed from an outboard marine engine.
|Implausible toothed belt belt routing to drive the disc valve|
on the Konig. The rubber bands driving the water pump also
seem unlikely. All the same it worked and worked well.

|Norton 350cc 40M Manx with Manx Grand Prix history.|

crew who raced a similar race tuned bike.
|This 700 Royal Enfield twin powered big wheeled sidecar racer|

day. It was still holding its own against a lot more trick machinery.
|Brilliant original period Dunlop sidecar racing rim and tyre on|
the Enfield combo.
