The owner of a newly-imported Russian Mi-2 helicopter has had his aircraft grounded at California’s Hayward Airport while the FAA looks into allegations that he flew it without an Airworthiness Certificate and without locally-required insurance documents. Officials in Oakland, California, where pilot Thierry Thys was based, asked him for the documents, but when he couldn’t produce them and later flew the Mi-2 to nearby Hayward , the FAA was notified. The pilot was not injured, and damage to the aircraft was relatively minor. The jet’s right wing tip struck the runway and started a small fire on the wing, which then started a grass fire at the airport. The aircraft suffered an unknown amount of damage. Both occupants were fatally injured, one of whom was the aircraft owner. The pilots were flying from Georgia to New Mexico, where the owner lived. The Government of Nigeria has ordered the sale of over out-of-service and abandoned aircraft from around that country.

When some wealthy collector finally builds the ultimate motorcycle museum and designates one wing as the Hall of Influential Motorcycles, it’s not likely future visitors will see a Norton Commando Production Racer there. By most of the accepted methods of the definition, the bike simply wasn’t that important, especially outside Great Britain. It began life as a race-shop project, was launched as a marketing gimmick and, after a brief spurt of dominance and popularity on the British and European racetracks, went the way of other, suddenly uncompetitive racing machines.
Which is to say, into oblivion and numberless pieces. And yet there exists reason to think otherwise of the bike the British press instantly christened the “Yellow Submarine” on its debut at the Racing and Sporting Motorcycle show in London in a freezing January in This Production Racer a box-stock, genuine factory-built device, not some “prodified” aftermarket machine could well be considered the Ultimate British Vertical Twin.

The bike was a cc Royal Enfield Constellation. It was a real bike in a box job, having been stripped down to every last nut and bolt and needed a complete restoration. It took me a while to rebuild and restore because I couldn’t afford a workshop manual, and pretty much as soon as it was finished, I managed to ride it straight through a neighbour’s garage doors when the throttle stuck open during a test ride! Fortunately, the garage was empty and he was kind enough to let me make good the damage and not tell my dear old Mother.
Unfortunately, no-one had told me that these engines could occasionally run backwards if you caught them right or wrong! Then I bought myself a cc Panther Sloper that also needed some reassembly and as part of that restoration, I made a point of fitting double throttle return springs, hey, at least the garage doors were safe and then I changed the Panther for probably my favourite motorcycle of all time, the BSA Rocket Gold Star. This was all at a time when a teenager could insure a British bike of around cc for something like UKP20 a year but had to do everything by the slow process of post and cheque or check for you Americans!
Anyway, enough of my chat Enjoy the British bikes Vincent Comet A wonderful restoration of this very desirable and collectable machine.

Scott won a Mr. Pete’s Grill gift certificate provided by Mr. This was Scott first time to our meet with the Commando. It is build 35 from the Norton Works, and Scott has owned it for about six months. The bike has many custom bits including a single Mikuni carb replacing the original dual Amal carbs. Brembo front brakes and a Corbin Gun Fighter seat to name a few. According to Scott, Corbin got their start building aftermarket seats for the Norton. The success of their Gun Fighter seat lead to a damand for other brands, and the rest is history.
Scott also mentioned that the right side shift pattern on a Norton is different from other bikes with a one up, three down pattern. Something that doesn’t effect him until he goes back to one of his other bikes. Thanks Scott for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our May Gallery.

Shows off the braced Webb forks which were seemingly only fitted to Bennett’s bike. It is signed by Bennett on the back. I once owned the engine from this machine – Norton’s TT machines were fitted with their first semi-dry sump type engine – which was built into a later flat tank frame by a subsequent owner and sold for a vast sum by, I think, Bonhams a few years back. If I remember correctly it was not claimed to be AB’s actual bike! Many thanks to Kevin for sharing!

That was the estimate Bonhams had in mind for this piece of classic bike history when it came up for auction at the firm’s October sale at Stafford. A very respectable 57bhp was claimed with the maximum speed touching mph. But Hobbs was unsatisfied and took the bike to Ted “Barry” Baragwanath pictured left. Baragwanath, a well-known and well-respected Brooklands sidecar racer and tuner who also ran a motor repair business in North London and was noted for wearing a winged collar with his riding gear coaxed the horsepower up to around 65 from This was achieved by increasing the compression ratio to 8.
