British Track Bike - what would you build

Being lucky enough to live close(ish) to Anglesey Circuit I have rather a fancy to build a good old British based track bike - like I don't already have enough to do :shock:
Question - what would you use if you were going to pull the bits together and build something like that? Only stipulation, brake has to be on the LH side - I get too confused to remember the other way around at high speed anymore !!

Are you wanting Ariel related suggestion or is it open to all.
Vfor the sound it's a toss up between a triumph triple or a big single on an open pipe.

Any suggestions welcome, sound important but would like not to be embarrassed by being lapped too many times either :)

Best to start with something fairly quick that handles well already..? Velo Venom ?

Venom would go well for sure, thought people might have had opinions about different frames, engines, carbs, suspensions, fuel types... a good few months away from making a start yet anyway so plenty of time for contemplation.

Are you looking to do track days or compete in a class?

Just something for track days, don't think I'm competitive enough / fast enough to compete... looks like a nice circuit to ride though, not done it yet, looking forward.
