Here is a picture of my '52 Triumph drag bike. It was customized into a show bike in 1963, but was a functional drag bike before that. I found the bike in an old Triumph dealership 3-4 years ago after sitting since 1968 and restored it.

I also wish your dad was around to add information about his motorcycle drag racing days. He sure had a "state of the art" Fuel Triumph for that era. Thanks for posting the pictures of him.


rgsdave,

You have a cool Triumph.

Maybe Frank, Joe, or Keith can answer this. In the early 80's, there were some guys from Australia I think, running a rear engine, blown shovel head. I saw it at Humboldt a couple of times, I may even have a picture of it somewhere. They started it on an axle stand type of affair, then literally kicked it off the stand. I don't ever remember it hooking up, but I do remember it smoking the tire forever

It sure looks like Prentiss Perry, Dean. I don't remember any other black twin engine Triumph riders. Check out those "old school" tennis shoes.

I was wondering if maybe someone on this thread could help me out. I'm trying to locate a guy named John Hide or it could be spelled Hyde. John ran a Harley drag bike back in the 60's/70's at Great Lakes Drag-a-way in Union Grove WI.

He doesn't oue me money or anything like that! The owners of Great Lakes drag strip want to induct John into the tracks Hall of Fame this summer and the contact info they had all came to a dead end. If anyone knows John, please PM me or email be at: bignick@4thgearstudios.com

Thanks Guys

The pic posted by Dean Lowe, #1499. Perry & Lowe? The bike looks like a pair of 750cc Nortons on a stretched featherbed frame. Looks like the negitive is reversed.
I once owned a single engine 750cc Norton drag bike and I was told it was reitred to build a double. I never did find any history on the bike.
