Indian GP endurance scooter

Postby Nigel. S » Sun Aug 02, 2020 10:11 pm

This didn't start off as a lockdown project, but unfortunately it became one.
Thought we'd (Meds, Solid Air & myself) have a go at endurance racing. So cobbled this together, our indian GP slightly unstandard. Don't worry about the stand, It's going.

We weren't allowed to use Solid Air. We did ask.

Engine was Meds department, so I'll let him have the honours of that. But it was a rebuild destined for his rusto which got diverted to the racer. It's a nice spec though.

Engine spec is nothing special - it’s a road Spec RT engine I built for my scoot .

It's more the heavy handed braking that always concerned me!
