  3. Looking forward to it, it would be nice if he did it on a true period bike though.

  4. Well, Steve McQueen famously didn't use a period bike. So I can forgive Guy for that. :)
     
  5. It was a triumph tr6 with about 30hp and I doubt the chassis and suspension was up to much either.
     
  6. He could have borrowed mine..

  8. Is he still up to his old tricks of pulling one off in the back of his transit?

  9. It wasn't Steve Mcqueen either. Bud Ekins did the jump, I have a poster in my garage of the jump.He was cool though!

  10. Now that would be a great Guinness book record with a sidecar.:eek:...Guy is surely mad enough for the challenge.

  11. This is the McQueen bike. Dick Shepherd owns it now, apparently it’s 95% authentic. Dick let my lad sit on it but he’s never heard of Steve McQueen, he’ll appreciate it when he’s older.

  17. Thoroughly enjoyed as usual.
     
  18. Mmm, IMO the program was padded out with a load of extraneous crap so it was far too long. I lost interest and went to bed before seeing the final jump. Andy
