A stunning and rare piece of Speedway history. The Staride was designed and built by Mike Erskine, who later went on to build Formula 3 (500cc) racing cars at his workshop in Southampton. The Staride featured the 5 stud JAP engine cradled in a hand built Erskine frame, and was a classic and minimalist design that all speedway bikes adhere to, even to this day.
This lovely example has a name plate stating that Neil Roberts was its owner at some time in its racing life. It has had a sympathetic restoration (believed to be by Neil Roberts’ son) and the specification includes an original twin float Amal carb, original ‘dirt track’ magneto, 1″ diameter handlebars and large diameter rear wheel.
One of the rarest speedway bikes of its era, the Staride could pass as a work of art in any surrounding and should prove to be an excellent investment.
