I saw other guys try to minmic his style but no one was really able to pull it off.
The race was won by a guy you may have heard of Jay Springsteen.
Those frames, from what I remember were I believe built either by Kenny or by people that worked for him. I was going to buy the shorttrack mono shocker 250 he was building, but I couldn't scrap up enough money at the time, $3200.00, I think for the complete bike.
I think he also had a mono shock XS 750 TT frame also, maybe someone can confirm that.
I'd love to find a picture of that.

Question

Do you know what frame is on this bike? It's not stock. Doesn't look like a race bike with those wheels more like a street tracker.

It's a Kenny Roberts mono shock frame with Morris Mag wheels. The only thing stock is the Yamaha motor.

I wonder if kenny still has the blue prints for that frame. I always thought that it would make awsome streettracker.

Do you know about the triple clamp setup? It looks like adjustable trail or something. But it may just be the picture.
