Greg Haywood - Australia. I've owned this 750 Sei since 1982 and as you can see it was painted by Dream Machine for Dave Hill of Slade.
I have just rebuilt my 1977 750 SEI. It has been a complete nut and bolt restoration all though not back to standard condition as it has modern Triumph switch gear and a home made loom. Marvin 6 into 1 pipe which sounds glorious except its well above 115 dB. Engine vapour blasted with some 900 gearbox internals and Honda 500/4 pistons and rings.
Modified frame with taper roller headstock.
Ceriani 35mm GP forks
Grimeca double sided front brake
Bridgestone rear brake.
Hagon Classic rear shocks.
Fibreglass fuel tank, mudguards and breather tank Hydraulicly formed megaphones.
Engine has been gas flowed and Joy camshaft fitted.
Battery and electrics have been fitted under the tank and seat.
Plus a thousand and one other little things which seem to take up all the time and effort.
The sound on open pipes is truely awsome !!. At the moment I'm fitting internal baffles to the megaphones in an attempt to get below the 105db required at most events.
Who says you can't teach and old dog new tricks! Device is an iPAQ 3970 running TomTom 5 in a rugged case. GPS is TomTom MkII bluetooth which I just carry in my pocket. Power is available from the bike via a modified 12v car adaptor although it will run on batteries for 8 hours or more. Mount is from RamMount UK. Small ball mount is fitted under mirror
This Tornado 650, a 1970 model - which is quite rare in Australia, was restored 5 years ago and still going strong!
James Cheyne from Seattle USA. A Benelli 750 Sei and a simple engine stand I built that can be used to hold the engine in any position, on its side, even upside down!
In 1983 just after I had finished restoring it. Shortly after I took it on a touring holiday in Europe - no doubt providing some ideas for paint schemes for another manufacturer... and later Benelli themselves! Then 22 years later after a bit of a restore.
