Keep a look-out for some Special Bikes.
Early 1970s Wernecke DR500 ex Manfred Poschenrieder - £6,000.00 (or very near offer)
This Speedway Bike is a very rare machine indeed. Not many of the Wernecke DR500 engines were built. The frame resembles a Jawa 2 Valve but has a Centre Carburettor set-up. This design is way before Jawa introduced the Centre Carb Frame when they launched the Centre Carb 895 Engine in 1978.
The engine was developed by a University Professor in Germany and uses lots of Magnesium Parts. It is approximately 20 lbs lighter than the JAP 4B Engine, that it was designed to beat. Looks very similar to a Vincent Comet Engine. I will add further information in due course, when I have translated it.
Delivery can be arranged.
Early 1970s Maely Speedway Bike - £6,000.00 (or very near offer)
A very rare Speedway Bike built by Ken Maely of America. Ken was famous for making the Steel Shoes for Riders in the USA. But he was also famous for designing and building Engines and Frames resulting in complete bikes.
This Maely is from approximately 1974. It is a 4 Valve Engine and has the Primary Drive (in this case a Belt Drive) is on the right side of the engine. It is adorned with USA livery Glitter Guards. I haven't been able to identify whos bike it may of been but I am sure there must be some photos around somewhere to give a clue.
I am aware that there is a Maely in the Ian Patterson Collection "Cinder to Shale" but don't know of anymore in this country.
Delivery can be arranged.
The following Stickers have mostly been digitally re-mastered using originals found on 1970s / 1980s Speedway and Grasstrack Bikes as templates. These have been done whilst carrying out restoration / refurbishment of bikes, to retain originality as near as possible.
Many of the Companies are no longer trading or no longer offer the period stickers.
I am now offering these for sale to fellow Restorers and Collectors of Classic Speedway and Grasstrack / Longtrack Bikes.
Please note that the colours on the stickers are vivid, as the originals, the quality of my photographs, does not show this.
Postage to UK addresses is £1.00.
