Bill Swallow racing The Manx Grand Prix in his Davida Jet

Posted by dev on

This is Bill Swallow at Ballaugh Bridge racing his Aermacchi in the 2002 Junior Classic Manx Grand Prix.
Whilst at school,  in 1968 I raced a 500cc Velocette, which I feel off at Goosenecks in front of my mum ! Built my own frame for the Velo in 1971 and kept racing it untill 1975. Bought a featherbed Manx R, chassis and gearbox and raced until 1988. In 1986 I won 1st in the Manx GP on a 350cc Honda and since won 8 more.Won National Classic Bike Championship on the Velocette in 1986. I am still the fastest person ever on the TT Course on 250/350 and 500cc single cyclinder bikes. I always reckoned I rode harder in an open face and goggles-you can get your head down. My Davida Jet is so comfortable, more flexible…the lightness and quality of the leather lining ! “. This image came from www.fottofinders.co.uk
