2011 AMD World Championship. 2nd Place Freestyle Class.

Bike “Son Of A Gun” built by Larry Houghton from Lamb Engineering in Salisbury, UK. The bike is based around a 1951 BSA single cylinder engine and Talon motocross wheels. More parts are recycled ones from the ones rejected by friends. Non counting the value of his time and craftsmanship, Larry states that this custom wonder cost him only $9000, paint included! Who can say better?  (pictures copyright Frank Sanders & Onno “Berserk”  Wieringa for Cyril Huze)

    Nice old thumper ending up in an awesome chassis. Very nice in my eyes. Really like the rear suspension idea. Personally I really enjoy looking at bikes you can see through many different areas. Great Job, and Congrats.!!

    Thanks for the tour of this bike in Sturgis Larry. Top bike mate and well deserved.
    I enjoy each builder describing his or her bike. Only then can you feel the passion and fully comprehend it.

    The cafe racer and board track racer styles are getting a little overdone .
