Re: 50fl

Dang. I thought I was looking at a tube, not a tire. My post was meant to be a microscopic joke. No offense.

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

Trackmaster Nortoon built by Ken Cummings, NYC Norton. Yes I know it's not a full-fledged race bike; so sue me.

Says here that the primary is from a Matchless G85.

Pics swiped from BikeEXIF.

Re: Anyone else squeezing in a last ride?

Beautiful, G. I gape and drool.

I s'pose the tricky bit in riding that is the tendency to lock up and get sideways if you get on the back brake too hard, and to wash out the front end if you're...

Paint shops in northern Virginia?

A semi-pal in Reston wants to get his tank and other bits painted. Nothing very fancy. Has anybody got a recommendation?

Thanks y'all.

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

This swell thing has most likely been posted somewhere earlier in this thread. I think it's worth contemplating more than once, though. Maybe daily. Dick Mann's Gold Star, restored by the culprit...

Re: Hi! I'm new

Welcome, Travon.

Like many others here, I have voyeuristic tendencies. I.e., photos recent or ancient would most likely be gratefully received.

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

The Rokon Flat Tracker (manufactured in New Hampshire!) pictured below is here because I admire the brake linkage. Never saw one set up that way before!

Re: NZ Shovelhead build

It's excellent from close up. But I think it'll also look so intricate and interesting from forty feet away that bystanders will drop their lunch buckets and come on over for close inspection. Pretty...

Re: vintage pics o' the day

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

H-Ds built by Dan Zandana/Autoworks, Santa Barbara. The Norton is for sale (not by me!) at an ungodly but not delusional price ($13K).

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

I'd bet that the body 'glass is Tracy.

So, '70 at the latest because tin (pre-electric-start) primary? What tells you that the engine is no older than '65?

Er, maybe not the best place for...

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

That bike was offered for sale on vft.org several years ago, with a mildly interesting back story of which I remember zero. Cookie et al., can you tell the year (or range of years) from engine...

1. Who the fuck is Brent Stone?

2. Does it seem uncool to anybody else that the above-named person stuck a link to this thread up on Pinterest?

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

Strange on strange: Seems like the woods used to be full of images of the Ron Wood-built Nortoon with the giant front downtube. Today I can find only a few, and most of those are near identical to...
