    This reminds me of an incident that happened at the APBA Nationals in the mid 70's. A turn judge, who wasn't even positioned for a good view, accused a very famous and many times national champ of...

    That's a piston ported 1969 FA Konig. A 250 CC A motor. Looks like one of the last of the cast iron blocks.

    That's very interesting. So you set it on your head, then like a clamshell you closed to grip around your neck and clicked it in place?
