If your Hesketh V1000 has one of the following engine numbers get in touch via HOC Secretary.

    B 037
    B 038
    PD 03

 Some paperwork has turned up which would be nice to keep with the relevant bikes.

I contacted David as my bike has a 'PD' engine...  He's forwarded a ream of documents discussing the build standards and quality (or lack of it) on these 'Production Development' engines.  It was interesting to note features discussed that still persist on my own engine alongside those which had been addressed prior to release and/or hve been addressed by me.

So, if you have a V1000 with a 'PD' engine (or just a PD engine) get in touch with HOC and we'll arrange for the paperwork to be made available - it's a very interesting read..!

Sorry Chris. I did say 'ream'. There are over 100 pages, all in hard copy... I've also received a log book of road testing for the first production bike... I'll see what I can do to get the info scanned and hosted on the HOC site, but it'll take some time..
