More on the Shackleford:

I had a chat with Brian Shackleford at the Stafford Show (April 2017) and took these three photographs of his bike, which was on display on the BSA stand:

IMG-20170422-00306   IMG-20170422-00305 IMG-20170422-00303


Here are the brief facts: The frame is BSA; the gearbox is BSA; the crankcases and barrels are Harley Davidson; the heads are BSA B31; the forks are "Reliant"!; There are two sets of points with 22.5 degrees between them; the points are from a Renault 5; the Vee is 45 degrees; camshafts and crankshaft made by Brian. In the second picture below, you can see Brian's Sunbeam, which has lent it's styling to the Shackleford. I am hoping Brian will soon be able to supply a build story for the "A V-Twin Obsession" site, soon. Watch this space!
