8.2/8.3s were the best if my memory is serving me correctly...

I was contacted by Bob Webster regarding this bike and he gave a different view of the seven second run. He is definite that it was a true time, the bike was running 8.0's prior to it, and the nito load was upped beforehand. He is dismayed that people do not accept it, it could not be backed up due to damage sustained during the run. Does anyone have a record ot the times run that meeting Aug 28/30 1982?
The bike will be on show at the Chichester College Bike Show 2013 held at Chichester on 23rd June more details from bikeshow@chichester.ac.uk .

Would you be prepared to show the restored bike anywhere else this year, like Long Marston for instance?
