It's that time of the month again (are feminie jokes acceptable on this forum or will I be asked to leave the building?) when you have the chance to vote for the best resserection (no religious or sexual comments pleae). Unusually this month I have not had to scour the net looking for images I have received a lot of high quality submissions, so please keep them coming.
Happy voting - Srumpy
Option 1: Alex Ozzard-Low's 1977 original UK Jota to 3C restoration undertaken by by Scott Potter
Apparently the story is that the bike was owned by (and perhaps imported by) Lance Weil to Albuquerque, New Mexico, one of three Jotas from Slaters. The first picture, which was scanned from an original photo in David Ill’s possession, was taken in June 1977. Apparently Lance modified it some months later adding an SFC fairing, TZ Yamaha front fender, and custom paint job. Then there’s a bit of a gap, and I bought it in 2007 from a fellow called PJ who was racing it.
The original intention was to get Scott to do a reasonable cosmetic restoration, but as usual with these things it all got a bit out of hand, so what we have is the beautiful machine in the photos.
My bike is one of three consecutive serial numbers, the other two are owned, I believe, by David Ill (who supplied the early info and pictures) and Bill MacCracken.
So that’s the story…
