1989 Antig-Weslake 247cc Junior Speedway Racing Motorcycle
Frame no. JATR 303
Engine no. 247 61 86
One of relatively few produced for Junior-class speedway racing, this Antig-Weslake is a slightly scaled-down version of the 'real thing' powered by a 250cc engine rather than the full-size racer's 500cc unit. We are advised by the private vendor that the drive-side crankcase has been welded following a crank-pin failure, and that the engine has been rebuilt with a later-type crank-pin and big-end bearing, and a new piston. The bike is said to start first pull and to sound great. It is believed to have been built for the English rider Scott Kirton, who rode for the Coventry, Peterborough and Long Eaton speedway teams in the early 1990s. Restored in 2005 and last run earlier this year, the machine is described by the private vendor as in good condition throughout.
