In 1929, Bill Lacey, riding a 500cc Grindlay Peerless became the first rider to cover 100 miles in an hour on a British track. Five or six replicas were made in 1930, one of which was bought by Edmond “Boy” Tubb in 1936. The engine was rebuilt for him and with this, he went on to wing a Gold Star at 102mph.
