Mark Walkers new project - Saltster

I cant visit Dorrigo without dropping in to see my good friend Mark Walker.
He's been making great progress with his latest project "The Salster".
It's a 1000cc rotary valved vtwin with salt racer styling.
Slim and minimalistic, it should be interesting to hear it run.
Mark had just got the frame back from painting,.
My engineer mate Trevor had spent some with Mark on the last project "Big Ned",
So Mark and Lynne were pleased to catch up with him.

Some very quirkiy engineering is obvious
