Suzuki 1000 Phasar

White Suzuki GS1000 Phasar with a fine collection of Quasars during the 2005 Quasar rally at Laughton. This machine actually started life as a Mk2 Quasar, with a roof. Handling leaves something to be desired, but it's very comfortable. Pic: Paul Blezard

Big Twin Guzzi Quasar

I snapped this photo in Malcolm Newell's workshop circa 1986. We think it might actually be the Guzzi Convert Phasar in a new guise, but we're not sure. We know that Malcolm "robbed" the Tait hub centre steering off the Convert for another project, but we're not certain that it was then turned into this Twin Head Steer big twin Quasar-Guzzi. Nor do we have any idea where it is in 2008......PNB.

The long and the short of it.

Rolling it down the road to the van I got good control, feet up, at walking pace. It will be driveable at low speed!

Lynch EVFF meets Quasar

I took my Quasar to meet Cedric Lynch's lightweight FF and had a second ride in his electric-powered one-off. Cedric had a sit in the heavyweight Quasar but didn't attempt to ride it! In this pic we are each sat in our own vehicles. PNB. Photo: Paul Compton.
