New 500cc Aspin engine as ready to test November 2002.
Not quite the success we hoped in that we did not get it running, but we did verify that the sparks
were in the right place and sorted out a couple of mechanical problems concerning gear linkage and

The project has had a chequered history since and for a while I was not allowed to work on the
engine as it was protected by patents.
