Octobers Window Bike is a bike that we are very familiar with, as it is one of our Slowcocks Racing P1-350's. The bike was built by Tim Voyer of 840 Racing out of North Bay. The bike started life as a street legal Honda CB350 Twin, and was transformed by Tim into a very competitive race bike which Thomas from Town Moto raced this year. The paint was done by Ryan Stack, a super talented and self-taught hobby painter out of Welland.
The engine has new 65.5mm pistons, competition valve springs, and a deleted kick start mechanism which saves some weight. Also, throughout the motor, there are numerous custom machined pieces that serve as plugs and retainers, that were included in the built to make the bike lighter and also more reliable. The plastic puck on the left hand side of the bike, was machined by Tim and is there to protect the total loss PVL magneto ignition which allows the bike to run with out a battery or it's stock, heavy charging system.
The rear suspension came from Works Suspension in California and is set up for the riders weight. While the front suspension was upgraded from the stock 33mm forks to 35mm, and extra fork bracing added. The exhaust, belly pan and inner fender were also custom pieces built by Tim.
The front brake is originally from a Honda CB77 which came with a larger twin leading shoe brake, much more competent in stopping than the stock drum brake. Both the front and rear drum brakes have been drilled, while the front drum has the benefit of a racing high friction coating.
