The H1 was 500cc.
The H2 was 750cc.

It was the H2 that [I believe] was called the Widowmaker, so... I'm not sure which one Bannister has in his possession.

Re: Another Project found thrown in my truck

H2 is the widow maker.

I have never heard of the H1 causing problems.

Mike Ross (high school buddy) was single when he woke up in the hospital... His 750 pitched him in the ditch while he was practicing for the drag races. Had his helmet on, still doesn't remember anything about the accident...

Its striped down to frame to be powdered coated, Its will be a while before it makes an appearance, Motor looks good its free spining hopefull not much needed (still will need torn down and replace crank seals) maybe a mild exhaust porting and nice exhaust chambers. Currently just ebaying to replace rusty parts that can't be saved.. Should be nice when done these bikes were the coolest when I was a tennager!

We just called the H1's (and the H2's)
"Flexible Flyers."
They wallowed so bad in the corners, it was anyone's guess which side they would crash on.
It took some real balls to pass em.
And if you did, they would just re-pass you on the straights.
One took me out in the pouring rain at Nelson's back in 74???
All through the race we swapped places. Battling for last spot on the podium.
He passed me on the back straight just before the kink, lost it and stood it up. Leaving me no choice but to go grass sledding at about 115MPH.
(somewhere there's an 8MM movie of me flying thru the air about 8' up)

Re: Another Project found thrown in my truck

BTW Dave,
A bit of (hard learned) advice.
Don't use a metal case timing light on that evil thing.
Apparently insulating the HEI was not a high priority back then.
It's amazing the distance your leg muscles can catapult you with a 50,000V zap

Yes most things back then had points early seventies but these mean machines had cdi's in 1973 pretty cool. I'm only trying to preserve something from the past getting this running its stripped down in pieces I've been ebaying like a mad man, getting ready to clean/coat the tank and sanding wire brushing the frame in my free time!
