Obviously you'd like to get lots of traffic to your site...

But what about just posting some pics here, we have several interesting flat track pic threads going:

nice! They used to have flat track racing here in the early 80's. We would flat track race our three wheelers and the main attraction was the flat trackers at the end of the night. It was a small track and there were always lots of wrecks.

My boyhood hero was "Super Fred" Smith. He raced Yamahas and Triumphs for my Dad's shop, then got a factory ride with H-D in the early to mid 70's (national plate 42). I'd love to find any and all old pics.

Joe. Here's one of your old subjects (Jay Springsteen) on my wkr Big Horn Kawasaki. I have Woody Kyle's bike that Jay Ridgeway, Jeff Purvis and Ed Salley rode, here for a resto. I seen some small pix of Ridgeway on your site. Do you have any bigger, or more pix I could use to help with the resto.

The other pic is of Don Castro's factory Triumph that I just restored. Any other pix of Don on the Triumph would be cool too.

Thanks,Don Miller www.metroracing.com

It's a slightly modified 1971 BSA/Triumph OIF chassis. And it looks real good.
