Here is a good YouTube video on M/C aero. It does not have any great secrets to reveal, but is very informative.

     Some good articles with related aero info and pics in the Dec '17 issue of "Classic Bike" magazine.  John Britten's "Winged Warrior" built in the late '80's  on pages 18 and 19.

George Brown's "Nero" and "Super Nero" Vincents on pages 78 - 83.  Piero Taruffi's LSR runs on  Gilera on pages 100 - 104.

Sid, I was fortunate to stumble on to the Britten bike displayed in the museum in Wellington.
