Pro-am Elsie!

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - RETRO -

Buy­ing the 30 bikes nec­es­sary for the Pro-am events cost around £70,000 – with spares! The bikes are RD250LCS (eas­ier to get than the orig­i­nal 350s) and the spec­i­fi­ca­tion of the en­gines is all pe­riod and iden­ti­cal. As all bikes were sourced from main­land Europe, all the re­stric­tor wash­ers were re­moved from the ex­hausts. Nitron rear shocks and re­vised front fork in­ter­nals were also fit­ted. A set of Con­ti­nen­tal’s Conti clas­sic at­tack ra­di­als fin­ish the bike off. Since the first event in 2015 the bikes have been fur­ther re­fined and brought to a much more equal stan­dard fol­low­ing lots of dyno time and work by IDP Moto’s Craig Prior.
