Cor - any clues on this cheeky framer? 'SOHC 500cc single' says a friend, but beyond that, we're struggling.

Googled Red Bull Hinson combinations but found nothing...

Suerte, Dan

Ah, I see. Oddly, illogically, irrevocably, it appeals slightly less now I know it's pro polished not keen amateur shine. Thanks, man.

Aside from the engine and frame, nothing on it is stock, and there's a good chance both the engine and frame are highly modified anyway.

Thats a XT 600 frame. The dent in the tube by the gas tank is only on the xt frame. The front motor mount is off a TT frame. It has side holes for the tube skid plate. The xt skid plate has one hole to mount to the motor mount.
The gas tank is off???? The seat is a flat-track from??
Looks good!! Hope this helps.

The power comes from a CRF 450 Honda. Yeah it was built by a TV -pro builder / flavor of the month guy. But, even with all that it's cool. Cool speaks for itself.

How do you guys make those Flat Tracker tails?
Here is a terrible photochop of my 450 Nighthawk.

I placed my CM450 tank onto it. I'm going to use it, and the plastic piece from the read fender from the nighthawk. I photochopped the plastic piece onto the frame. I think I'm going to use it to good effect...

Just wondering how you guys do yours. On second look, it seems as if they are a mass manufactured piece. A lot of the trackers here has the same tails although they are different makes/models...

Also, what is a good resource for motocross (spoke) wheels for decent prices?

Most of us buy the tracker tail piece...There are quite a few outfits that produce them...Omar's, Glass from the Past, Hot Wing Glass, etc...

I used the stock seat and rear tail piece on my Ascot, but I took them apart and shortened them by cutting about six inches from them and bolted them back together. The fit is not exact, but I like the "stock" look.
I'm going to trim the back of the seat foam down to match the front part, then have the seat recovered.
Here's the stock Ascot:

And here's the modified version:

Almost looks like you could fit a motocross seat in there. Looks good though. I like it.

A bigger repost of the actual bike that won the Houston Astodome race in 1974.
