Man tames 40,000cc twin cylinder bench racer. Someone thanks Alan for something

Ithought it was worth sending you the attached photo of the project I took on as soon as the second lockdown was announced. I think it’s best described as a ‘parallel twin’, though it’s since been replaced by a ‘single’. For once, the cold weather was a good thing, since these aren’t great if they get too warm. They do have a tendency to ‘leak’ despite (or perhaps because of) my best efforts, and those of a a few friends – they’ve both run dry. Since the photo was taken, another one has gone, and I’m about to start work on the fourth. I think that’s pretty good going, given that each ‘cylinder’ has a capacity of around 40,000cc.
