Didn't realise Hannibal Lector could make pistons :crazy:

I am guessing you mean Burt Munro?

I had a look at one of those Royal Oilfield incontinental GT's today whilst I was at Skegness beach race, Nice looking bike. You would never imagine that it was built by men in sandals.

You have ruined that film for me now. ;)

I saw a documentary on youtube about them they sent Indians to the factory to work as apprentices then sent all the machinery and tools over and they started building them to the same design.

Oh well my balancer chain and guide should arrive at work tomorrow for the Big so I can start rebuilding. :)
