Nova Racing?

Post by Jeff K » Sun Feb 10, 2019 5:51 am

Anyone done any business with them? I was doing a web search for a H*nda CB77 project and I found them.

Just when I thought I was going to have some time to myself for a few months, my brother discovered Meecum Auctions and picked up a 1967 H*nda CB77 with 30 miles on it, a 1958 Royal Enfield Meteor Minor Deluxe with fairing in mint condition and a spotless 1990 BMW K1.

All were part of a 1700 + bike auction and all came out of various museums. The K1 came from Stockholm Sweden. Now he wants to get them all running for spring. I am trying to talk him into buying a 1974 Triumph TR5MX. I had found it stored away 30+ years ago in fantastic condition and had bought it for $50 USD. On the way home in My best friends truck, He was kind of quit and I asked him what was up. He laughed and asked my what was my dream bike when I was young. I told him the Triumph TR5T, he laughed and told me the TR5MX was his. I sold it to him for the $50. It has sat in is garage every since and he had never fired it up. And he is now thinking about selling it. I offered him $50 for it and he politely refused. :mrgreen:

Hi
Nova are company in Sussex local to me. I have visited the factory and had a tour. They make very high quality gearboxes primarily for racing but some for road bikes as well. They have a great reputation. They are used by many racing teams.

They have a good reputation in rd lc circles for making cogs and gears for gearboxes. I've not used them myself.

Thanks for the replies. I had not heard of them before, good to know that some one is specializing in gearboxes. I see they make Shifter forks for our bikes also.

They have a deserved good reputation but everything they do for BSA is already made by Mark Cook of PES at keener prices and no compromises on quality. The includes the 5 speed A65 boxes sold by J R Hill, PES make the gears for him.
