Win a tshirt competition

If anyone else has a chance theres still a few days to submit a video for the chance to win a tshirt.
If You just have mobile phone footage and no editing facilities no probs. Any video is fine no matter how gnarly. No worries about quality. Something special may be captured in any footage. I am glad for the submissions so far, means I won't be giving the prize to myself.
just to recap on the rules (these are flexible)
prefferebly pre 79 bikes (flexible)
Your own video (not existing web footage)
Around 1 - 2 minutes ish.
Prefferably new video's filmed after this contest commenced (16/10/10) but there is also flexibility on that.
I end the contest on 17/11/10

Rudge and Crocker

Look at this amazing Crocker engine in an equally amazing Rudge frame. All these images and information from Newcastle Speedway site. Look at that great driveline. So nice.
The original machine probably looked something like this.
