Fath 500

The Fath500 an extraordinary racer!!

Here are some pics of the amazing Fath 500. The solo machine was ridden by Billie Nelson and John Ekerold. The sidecar by the constructor Helmuth Fath. Helmuth Fath first wanted to use a König engine but after closer inspection he decided to built his own engine. It has got a disc valve for each pair of cilinders, 30 mm mikuni´s and 80 hp.
