  2. Saw Read & Ivy race these many times Read was timed at over 170mph at Spa in 1967 while Hailwood’s 250cc six cylinder Honda clocked 156mph.

    This machine on the photo is the machine we have built and not the machine on which Phil Read won the Worldchampionship (that machine does not exist anymore) Phil Read has paraded this machine several times as memebr of my Yamaha Classic Racing Team… it is a newly built historical works machine…
