“It’s not alive if it’s not dripping.”
He told HU17.net: “In its day this was the fastest 250cc bike around.
“Unlike a lot of modern, bigger bikes, this is built to throw around corners and you can be a bit rough with it.
“I am just back from the TT, and I would love to take this to ride around the course. Maybe we can get a trailer and do it next year.”
Steve describes his bike as a “Marmite bike – you either love it or hate it”.
He pointed out the oil leaking from under the bike, and said it was a loveable trait of most most British bikes of the era.
He continued: “British bikes always drip – as we say, it’s not alive if it doesn’t drip!
“I keep it going thanks to Ray at RM Motorcycles. He always MOT’s it for me and is always there to advise me. He’s a star.”
