    This is the engine from the ex George White/Steve Gourdie outfit from the 80's. It's being revived with a view to parading at this years SCF.
    Just completed the engine. Someone else is doing the rest. Northerners will remember this outfit as being an annoyingly quick SI local at Nationals.
    It ran on big jolts of Nitro at the time. Petrol is in it's future now.

    Basically a CB500 four. The four "C"s are done.
    Capacity - shall we say, not far short of 700cc...Looks like 750 sleeves with oversize flattops of unknown origin.
    Compression - Um, bloody high.
    Cam - not marked but I think it's the old Yosh R & T grind from kelford. For 750's so big in a smaller engine.
    Carbs - Bigger than stock. I think they may be 750 bodies in the 500 rack.

    Jelly removed from the sump - castor oil...Rings unstuck, valves lapped and new seals. Bores deglazed. Years of baked on castor removed
    It's exactly as received. No "tuning" No cosmetic improvements. Just clean.
    there's a photo of that bike in the 'through the decades' cemetery circuit history book

    It's actually the Wanganui Aero Works GSX which has it's own history. George owned it for a fairly short time before he died in a road accident.
    I think Spyda said a while back that it still exists.

    We hope to be testing on Friday week. I'm trying to put a couple of pics here but I can't get my head around uploading the images from my desktop to here. Don't know how to use my phone or any of this shit and I don't have a child handy to tell me I'm a dumb cunt and do it for me...?...
