I remember Curley as making copy JPN fibreglass.
A Google search indicates that they made glasswork for Dunstall and ran a race team.
Curley GRP Ltd.

Greetings Reg Curley (RIP) did a lot of racing development work and also had a 'special' cam ground. His 750's were very quick and were fitted (if I remember correctly) with a Weber 40 DCOE carburetor. Pretty sure Dave Croxford used his set up as did Brian Kemp. Otherwise I have no further information; believe his family still run the glass business, so maybe an approach from Roadholder to the family for an article / history record would be appropriate before all this information vanishes?
Hi. Thank for the info, was just courious as has not seem before. I will try load up a picture of the casings

His brother worked for Paul Dunstall as a mechanic and was featured in a 1960's magazine Motorcycle Mechanics.
