just thought i would add a few more recent pics,after looking through lots of pics the rear of this frame is set up identical to john clift chassis, maybe someone based the frame on his builds ?? have a few issues with chain and sprocket clearances but like everything it will get sorted, hopefully in a week or 2 should have the motor running, gona run a full cooling system on this as it makes it easyier on running and testing the bike before hitting the strip, as you see in the pics the clipons are above the yoke which just makes it easyier to move around and test it out when running hopefully not on the main road :lol:

hi folks for those that showed interest thought i,d post a few recent pics, bikes now running and we both rode it yesterday round the industrial est and have to say not the easyiest thing to ride, still have paintwork to do and lots of odds n sods but just less than 12 months ago it was just a box of bits !! if it helps with finding any history on this bike it was once yellow.

Its great to see some amazing comments on my Granddad (Allan) as Jim sais with 2 l's just like bollocks as Granddad always said :lol: its nice to see a picture of him on his bike next to graham and mum julie sais geoff aswell, its took me 5 hours to find a picture of him and his bike, just wondering if anyone knows where the bike is these days as for the family its such a memory for my mum julie and my aunty and uncle debbie and graham, also any pictures of my granddad that you have if you could possibly upload them the family would be very greatful, ive searched online a lot today and found a lot of stuff in magazines etc on nck and about the drag bikes, it good to see that you all remember my granddad and thought a lot of him, he was a wonderful man and is greatly missed by us all, kind regards, Ian
