(Above) Les Irvine on his 1950 Comet. Because there in no back-cylinder-carburetter problem on the single, the battery may be fitted more centrally. A cast-alloy tie-piece takes the place of the rear pot which doubles as a frame member on the twins. (Below) John Kinley, aided and abetted by Graham Treahcher, commits the crime of quick cornering on his 1952 Black Shadow outfit. Long curved lever behind driver's right foot is the cranked kickstarter necessary on twins. Rear stand has been replaced by an orthodox mudguard stay.
