CV carbs, so the motor is a /5 or later, 750 or bigger.

I want one of the VW conversions in a /2 frame

Here's one for ya, although I'm sure Trademark Johnny knows this bike.
Any idea what two bikes were combined to build this special?



Spotted at Mid-Ohio this year.

That was quick! Yep, R75/2 comversion bike. I even made him a set of engine badges for it that say so. Friend of mine etched them from magnesium, I blasted 'em, and polished the raised letters.

I had a conversion for a while. It's nice having that majic button.

You got any pics for us to pick apart?

We're still giving him trouble over that one. But it passed tech at Daytona...

No. I can's see the down tube(s), but from the view it looks like a Triumph frame.

I'm pretty sure it's a Rickman frame, but I'm not sure of the engine. Penton or OSSA maybe?

There is no down tube. The front head has the mount directly on top.

Tricatis where usually built using a Duc single frame and a triumph twin motor, usually a 500.

Close, it's called a Vincati.

Ducati GT750 was the donor frame
