"The Perry & Scott, twin was aligned with Loux & Stanley's double Triumph. Perry left first, coughed twice and came in second." Bad luck twins! First time I've seen a name for this bike "Long Gone"
"Competition was very keen and the big run-off's matched Murray & Cook's twin engine Triumph with Harley mounted Leo Payne. Both came out of the hole well, but Payne took the win in e.t. bracket one." Winner of event, Leo's H.D. e.t./speed of 9.98/147. Later: "The crowd came to its feet when Murray & Cook came out on a record run with a sensational 9.63 second e.t. and a top speed of 155.17 MPH."

I'm really diggin' your blog. Loved all the period performance references. I'm building a 1957 Indian Apache 700 dirt oriented bike. This bike had been untouched since 1969. All I'm doing is getting it back on the road as is and doing a couple of correctly weathered and period correct mods for the dirt. The last piece I need is some kind of dirt friendly after market airbox/intake to complete the bike. Got anything interesting? The more beat and rusty the better."
Cool bike, I'm still looking for a aftermarket air box myself, but I'm more picky. I don't really want anything beat up. If you can help us out with anything like what is picture here, let me know.
The elusive aftermarket Q air filter. Some do not have the Q stamping, but are the same part. I very much need one of these. Will pay cash or trade parts: firstname.lastname@example.org
