Manx Minor…

By March 2, 2018 Headline News

Malcolm Buc submitted this eighties image (taken on the Isle of Man) of what originally was an OHC Minor. ‘Jemima’ was owned at that time by Geraint Owen who built the competition special, it’s believed with the help of his father. Geraint is a long-term VSCC member and competitor. Unfortunately, by the time this photo was taken the Minor  had already ‘lost’ its original registration and had been re-issued with an age-related number by DVLA. The special was powered by an air-cooled ‘V’ twin JAP engine and was dressed for competition with taped headlights, timing strut and a competition number. (Thanks goes to James Ashford for providing the revised information.)
