Default Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

This is my one BSA I found in guys basement that sat for 20 years. The tank was already on it. But with the Ceriani's, bobbed fender, stripped down, and bars I thought it gave a street tracker appeal kind of. Damn thing kicked over on its fifth kick after those 20 years. Sat in storage the last few years, but I pulled it a few weeks ago, put a lightning tank on it, rewired and am making a new seat and rearsets for it right now.

Wow that looks like it means business. You got any "Go fast turn left" video of this beast in action?

Here's my 1972 Bultaco Astro 360cc custom street tracker (soon it will have a late 60's vintage Mercurio tank painted with the later Astro dots-and-dashes scheme).

I found this last night in a box of old family photos. An uncle and his slightly customed 1966 Triumph 650 Bonneville TT Special. The picture was taken some time in 1967 when he was 19 or 20. Being his only transportation at the time, he commuted during the week and raced it on the weekends, sometimes drag racing it on alcohol. He still has the bike.

Welcome. Now that's an intro! Awesome pics, but they're kinda small. Very cool though.

Saw your post on HAMB and thought I'd stop back here and see what the response was. I went to all the Ohio races in the mid to late 60's. A friend of mine was Ohio # 38F expert. I was sort of a crew chief for him. I visited your website and it brought back a lot of memories. Cool pics!

Very cool stuff Thunderplex,
Just last night I was at a friend's house digging through his huge collection of old magazines and race programs from Castle Rock, Sidewinders, and other tracks here in the NW. Thanks for making all those photos available. Good stuff.
