Chris Bradley built a race 500 from a heap of T500 parts. His experience was published in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics in their February 1999 issue. Chris is still living off the proceeds from writing that article and plans a trip into the heart of Washington Farm some time this year to celebrate his new-found fame. He has since sold the T500 racer to Frank Melling.
His full story follows including the one even Classic Mechanics couldn’t publish. Thanks Chris.
