Thanks. I love flattrackers for the street. I'm surprised you don't see more of them.
Oh man, that red speedblock yammie is beautiful...

Don Green's Trackmaster Suzuki TR500 at San Jose
I used to race a Trackmaster 1/2 miler with a Kawasaki 350 Bighorn motor in it, sure wish I had some pictures of that now..
Looks nice, but appears to have stock frame:ddog .
A little embarrasing this. We never had the Flat tracker thing over here but I did put a Triumph together many years ago inspired by the USA flat trackers. It looks a bit tacky next to your proper bikes.
63 T120R with Suzuki GT550 front end approx 25 years ago. Bike was still under construction.
Very nice and I would venture to say that the British trackers we had over here in 63 looked similar to that, with the exception of the gauges, lights, and of course brakes .
Nothing wrong with that. Like the seller says, it does make the bike a bit more streetable. You can take a stock frame, smooth down the welds some (go easy!), then remove some brackets and such, add the "beauty plate" (I call it a frame stiffener)..and Bob's yer uncle.
He sure is getting a high price for it.. Mine isn't near that "clean", but I gave 1500. for it, too. Does having it in Cycle World mean that much?
500cc's, high compression, Methanol and Castor, clutch, throttle, and a footpeg. Yeehaa.
Sorta' wish I handn't sold them.
Thats just me, for that kind of money I think it should have a real racing frame. I know it might cost even more with one, but I think it makes it more period correct. But again thats just the way I think about it. It doesn't mean that much having it in Cycle World unless you were to get King Kenny to sit on it .
Roger that. IMHO, I think even what's bid on it so far is obscene. I've seen Trackmaster and CJ frames go for a grand (+,-) on eBay, and it would make for a more "period" ride.
Mine has a stock frame, nickel-plated, and King Kenny's autograph on the tank.. But it wouldn't fetch $7,000.00+ even if I washed it first
