The Stonebridge Motor Company and the Ace Cafe teamed up to build Little Miss Dynamite, the S&S powered cafe racer which was unveiled at the Ace in front of invited guests on June 9th and is is now competing in the S&S 50th anniversary celebration in La Crosse, Wisconsin and will also be at Champions Park, Sturgis, South Dakota for the AMD World Championship in August.
Little Miss Dynamite, built by by Nick Gale and his team at Stonebridge, is based on a Norton featherbed style frame with power from a 1650cc S&S V-twin and it has just the right cafe look. Specs are as follows:
Frame: StoMoCo Featherbed ‘Super’ Wideline
Engine: S&S 100ci SB Sportster 1650cc
Gearbox: 6 speed Baker XL
Rubber: 120 front + 160 rear
Dyno Report (Urbane Racing):
105lbs/sq ft + 135bhp @ rear wheel @ 75% throttle.140mph @ 5000rpm in 5th gear!
Mark Wilsmore, Managing Director of the Ace Cafe London says on her return from the USA, “Little Miss Dynamite” will debut at the cafe on Saturday 13th September with an opportunity to meet the builders, Nick Gale and his team, at 4pm on occasion of the 15th annual Ace Cafe Reunion weekend. As part of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the Ace over this weekend, the bike will also be present on Madeira Drive, Sunday 14th September, on the Brighton Burn Up.
Seeing the big V-twins in a sporty frame is great, as we’ve said many times, more builders should take this idea and run with it. Nice work!
