Not so evil. Stuart Graham winning the 1967 50cc TT on a Suzuki. At an average of 82+mph! Notice the results. Record average was the previous year. Ralph Bryans on a Honda at over 85mph. Gotta love them tiddlers!!

Those speed are freakin amazing with 50cc.

Gimme 70cc of four stroke and a $5,000 budget and I bet I could build one that would average 65 - 70 mph. Assuming there are no hills.

And remember that was 42 years ago. If the F.I.M. had'nt killed them off one can only imagine what might have been. In the Island there is a 1400 ft. climb from Ramsey to the top of Snaefel mountain(Well, its what they manxmen call a mountain LOL!)
