Race Retro 2016

1952 EMC Puch 125

(ink sketch)

This is one of very few existing EMC racers built by Joe Erlich in West London. This was considered the alternative for those that couldn't afford an MV racer. This particular example was raced by Rufus Broomfield on Southern tracks and successful on shorter tighter circuits like Blanford. The Marcellina split single engine is incredibly loud especially with the megaphone exhausts. The EMC is still in the family and used at demonstrations and the occasional sprint.

John Lane 1928 Racing CS1

This CS1 was developed and raced by John Lane in the VMCC Historic Racing during the 1960s and 70s running on methanol through twin Amal carburettors. The front end is unique with a back to back drum brake and braced Webb forks which are very rare. These fork are more commonly found on sidecar outfits and are used for their rigidity which helps with handling. The current owner bought the racer 2 years ago and has been sympathetic to the history that resides in the modifications and wear and tear that comes with race bikes.
