The old Good Year DTII's/Dunlops handel just fine on the street. They just tend to wear a little quicker than a street tire. Get the harder compound "8's" and you'll be fine.

Absolutely the coolest flat tracker ever built. This bike was built by Ron Woods (not the guitarist in The Stones!) and various forms of it were ridden by Alex Jorgenson, Jody Nicholas, Rob Morrison and Dave Aldana. This was the last iteration ridden by Jorgeson. Note the notched front down tube/oil tank. I love this bike.

My 1960 DOT desert bike. They really should have changed the name from DOT to POS.

Hi, 66 triumph,



This is a mid sixties Sportster XLRTT racer, mag in front of engine, owned by a guy called Marsh. A bit special in that it's fitted with a rare set of 60's alloy factory heads based on the iron ones castings.

Here's the guy with his other ride, a KRTT in the same lines:

Knot...that's the way Aermacchi Harley Sprint dirt track frames are made,whether rigid or with shocks.The latter is a factory rigid. vee2win
