Thirty years earlier, In September 1984, Neil Vass generously lent it to Paul Blezard to take to the Bol d'Or 24 hour endurance race at the Paul Ricard circuit in the South of France and that adventure was recounted in the pages of both Bike magazine and Motorcycle Sport. Neil later had it painted red, and fitted with both reverse gear and seat belts. He subsequently lent it to Pete Lawrence to do the same trip to the Bol d'Or and to Paul Blezard for various other events. Shawn Grinter had the machine painted yellow and attended many Quasar gatherings between 2000 and 2010.

  • Sports & Standard Quasar Bodyshells

    The Sports Quasar Mock-up

    The 'Sports Quasar' was a smaller single-seater created by Malcolm Newell for a late '70s motorcycle show, where it was displayed on the Avon stand.
    It was never a running machine, and the bodywork was mostly plywood rather than fibreglass. It languished outside the cottage where Malcolm lived for many years, but its remains still exist. PNB
