Very rare racer (for strong players)

This bike was raced in the 80s. It's very rare and difficult to find.....

I second Idiotboy

I also guess that it"s a Norton Rotary.

Bonus.... the bike is painted w/ John Player Specials paint colors.

The colours are very similar to JPS Norton Wankel, but this is a completely different motorcycle.
It was raced in the 250cc category at the Isle of Man TT, and it won at one occasion.

Yes

It looks like a Wankel but lacks the unusual exaust pipe. I will spend some more time on this today, the 250 engine took up most of my time last night but I am going to give up on it now....

Aris,

You gave too much infomation. Nevertheless, I ran with it.

It is a Waddon-Erlich 250.

ARGGHHHH!
Andy, I don't know what version of google you re running!!!!!


This trivia was really very hard, but as you said maybe I gave too many hints (for some players....)
I'll be more careful next time

BTW, Dr Elrich produced some more interesting bikes, all with Rotax engines.
