    There was another chassis Bill had which he didn't use and he sold

    This chassis was sold to a guy in Invercargill, didn't hear anythin about if for ages and somehow a few years later it ended up with Anthony Stephens who I think sold it to Graeme and then to John Lowther who fitted the motor

    this one was the old tr500, he gave the motor away and then sent the rest to an old swinger in aussie, this was early in the peice, it eventually had a normal front nose cone. he made a bigger fuel tank that his leg went right through, i hated looking at this feature, saw him go head on into a building at lyall bay and come out unscathed, later on he rolled it and couldn't get his leg out, says it spun two and a half times, but he didn't spin as many times.... he limped till he died.

    Pics of the early solos are very rare...The only one of the 7R powered Haley's Comet he had was one I'd taken on the grid at Cust in '57 or so.
    What have you got or seen ?

    not sure what it was but it was a kneeler, I would have to dig out the old Cams magazines to find it though.
    There might have been something in the old A-Z classic racing NZ book as well.

    just checked, the kneeler was a g80 then haleys comet was the 7R with duplex steering. i remember he built a sidecar once with the petrol pump operated through the rear suspension, he was racing at whakatane and fuel starvation was an issue as the track was so smooth so he got the swinger to jump up and down as much as possible to make it supply enough fuel

    Pretty sure The original G45 works racers with pannier tanks had that set up, as did I think the works proboscis Norton. Also pretty sure at least one form of the JPS Norton.
