Gary Jones won four consecutive 250 National championships while racing for Yamaha, Honda, and Can-Am. When he suffered a leg injury at Daytona and Can-Am bought out his contract, Gary took the $70,000 and started his own motorcycle company. Not an easy task, but at the time, Cooper Motorcycles was going out of business, and the Jones family bought the Mexican based company and used the Frank Cooper designed enduro bike as a prototype for the first Jones-Islo (the name would later be changed to Ammex, which stood for American-Mexican).
Under Mexican law, 68 percent of the Ammex had to be manufactured in Mexico, so the pieces that would be out-sourced included Sun rims, Diamond chain, Mikuni carbs and ART pistons. To ensure that the Mexicans didn’t use pot metal in the castings and frame, Jones shipped American-made chromoly and aluminum to the Saltillo, Mexica, Moto-Islo factory. The Mexican metallurgy was always suspect, especially in the crankshaft and transmission.
This is a good question but a simple answer in that i wanted to break another record and i wanted to do something with motorbikes but speed records are all far to expensive so while searching the guinness site i came across this one and thought here we go some big long useless thing thats right up my street. To start with i made the front and back first and fitted them to a “small” 4m long frame just to see if we had any problems that we could sort before the big stretch . This was worth doing as we are using a moped the only control going from front to back is the throttle and just a 4m long cable gave us problems with sticking etc , we tried putting bigger springs in carb and splitting the outer so just bare cable ran through the frame and these things did help but were not the final answer. In the end i came up with a very simple but effective system , each end of the bike had the throttle pre wired and tensioned to a lever and the levers were simply joined with ail mig wire and as this was so light and could have a little slack in it but the throttle stay tight at each ends it was perfect and even at 46ft felt like a normal throttle.
