I've ridden loads of bikes from 125s to 1000cc Powerbikes but always liked the 80s stuff. I've won 9 Forgotten Era Champs in the North West on an EXUP and an EXUP powered OW. I've also won 2 Manx GP reps (on a 600) and had a 5th at the North West 200 (on a 400).
I last raced in 2008 and in 2010 let another rider use my OW to win both Darley Moor (lap and race records too) and Ace of Aintree Champs. In 2011 there was a change of rider and the OW won the Pre Inj title at Aintree (plus lap record) and won the Silver Lion trophy for knocking 2 secs off the F/Era lap record. It was a regular front runner in the Open Class too! 2012 should hopefully see the same rider contest some Golden Era races but with a 750 motor fitted.
In 2013 yet another rider competed in the Classic TT and won a bronze replica on the bike.
2014 see's the build of another OW made from spares I have accumilated and both bikes are entered into the Pre TT races at Billown on the Isle of Man.
2015 season is the first on my YZF SP. After a few shake down races we have it quite competitive, so hopefully next year it will be a regular front runner.
Peter has been a great source of parts and information for the bike. Cheers.
