    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.

    I believe that bike is a replica or tribute to the Astrodome winner.

    There are endless dirt roads to ride here on the Bureau of Land Management lands.

    If you wouldn't mind, make it an annual thing. My tracker probably won't be ready this year. A New Mexico tracker rally sounds like a great idea for the colder months when the higher elevation trails are closed.

    That was featured in a magazine a couple years back.

    Rotax from a F series bike in a custom frame.

    Ron Wood I think.
