Replicating The North London Garage 1909 J. A. P. Engined Record Holder – Part X

Pavel Malanik has finished the machine with the exception of the handlebar controls which were not completed at the time the photos were taken this past summer. Seen both (above and below) are five photos showing the motorcycle taken from different angles. Starting with the fifth photograph (below) are some close-up images, followed by shots of the construction of components fabricated since our last post.

If all goes according to plan, he hopes to get it running and then participate with it at the Vintage Revival Montlhéry 2015 in France. You can look back on the entire North London Garage 1909 Record Holder project here.
