Glass From the Past is Bret Edwards in Canby, OR.   Bret makes all sorts of cool vintage bodywork and in fact made the tailsections and fairings that you see on many of the Flying Circus bikes.   This season Brett is sponsoring pretty much the entire northwest 160 grid with custom made bellypans (fully approved in advance by OMRRA tech) for a dirt cheap price.   See the wantads/parts for sale page for details.   Thank you Bret.   Everyone please buy lots of stuff from Bret and let him know that you appreciate it.   It also wouldn't hurt if you let him know that you were sent to him by the Flying Circus and Group W Racing.

6115 13th Ave S.
Seattle, WA

Phil at MSI has done all of the cylinder boring, cylinder head work and manifold matching, wheel lacing and repair and general 160 bench work for years.   He's located down in the old Georgetown area south of Seattle, right around the corner from Dewey's cycle.   He's generally there from around 3pm to 11pm Tuesday through Saturday.   There's no phone, so you'll have to drop by in person.   If you do drop in make sure to mention 160 racing and either my name or Tim Fowler's.

Craig is very familiar with 160s and 160 racing.   He can supply pipes, pipe kits, carbon fiber velocity stacks, custom fabricated clipons and more.   He also does top quality engine work, general fabrication, and more for just about anything motorcycle related and more.   Give him a call and he can help you.   I have clipons fabricated by Craig on my 160 racer.   Craig has helped out Group W Racing a whole bunch - he deserves your business.   Group W Racing tested and approved!

Bateman Racing
Bateman Racing is me of course.   I'm currently sponsoring quite a few of the Group W Racing riders with engine work and other services.   I'm also helping out all the 160 riders in general with mechanical help, advice and help at the track.   If you need mechanical work done this winter shoot me an email - we can talk about what I can do for your bike and what it might cost.
