Cerani forks and clamps. The top clamp does look a bid strange. Too many brakes to be a flat tracker and I think the background is England.

He hates to even admit he built them evil, poor handleing piles. He don't care much about them. If you look hard enough a man named Jerry Griffiths built the chassis for Kenny. I highly doubt that he'd want to re make any more. There wasn't many mono shock bikes made in 250 or 750.

As for the clamps. They are 35mm Ceriani clamos and forks. Nothing trick, the top clamp just drops down a bit.

With a front bike it would be a TT set up.

Zillla!

Hey Donzzilla,
Thanks for the info. All I really need is the specs and prints. I know of someone who could build it and modify it to my it handle better.

I can almost guarantee that there was no prints. They may have had some notes and used a jig to fit them up. If your buddy is that good, he should be able to make one from scratch.

The point of getting the specs(notes) is to check various angles and other points on the frame and what they are in relationship to other specs from some of the other frames of this type that work well and incorporate those into the design to make sure it would handle better .
I know it would be cheaper to just get one the frames that are floating around out there, but there is a uniqueness to that look of that setup .

FloridaSteve-Kenny's TZ Flatracker

FloridaSteve, many thanks for the information and link re King Kenny's TZ750 powered bike.
I was based at Yamaha's race workshops in Holland late 1978.
King Kenny, Karruthers and families including his mechanic's Knobby Clarke & Trevor Tilbury were all there at the time contesting the 250 & 500 GP class.
Had the opportunity to chat with Kenny on occasion and asked him about the TZ and what happened to it.
The way he described riding the bike still sits in my memory after all these years - How the bike fishtailed up the straights ('Hell everything I ride does that') under power and having to get it to turn in to the corner was clearly a challenge.
The article suggests the bike may have been in the graveyard on the site at the time - "For a long while it sat in the back of the Amsterdam race shop".
Shame we didn't know that at the time, would have been a great experience to see it in the flesh.

Regards,

JM-2008

The last one just tells a great story.

Thanks for posting them...and all the other great ones you've posted here and elsewhere, jehu.
