Holy crap! $12,500 for that gorgeous bike? I'm gonna have to plan on making the next auction! Very, VERY cool.

I agree the bike looks fantastic.
But in reality it's a stock oil in frame , stock forked , looks like but is not a dedicated dirt tracker.
I don't see lights so it's not a street tracker either. What is it beside nice?

Wouldn't be all that difficult to outfit it with lights. Gives me another way to go with my '74 OIF T120V (although I would probably leave the front brake on).

What does it need to be other than nice?

It just seems a high price to pay for tracker style without tracker cred.

Now if it had a Trackmaster,Sonic Weld,Champion or Redline frame some Cerianni or Betors up front and was ready to race or had lights and brakes and was ready for the street .... well that'd be different.

The BSA/Triumph wet frames made surprisingly good DT frames. And a lot less money than a Trackmaster, Champion, or Redline.

Get rid of the useless crud, decent forks (Betor (usually), Bultaco, or Ceriani) add the DT wheels and one of the DT tanks made to fit the wet frame back bone and you were well on the way. I built or helped build several DT bikes out of wet frame BSA's & Triumph's. And they worked well considering they were LOW budget (the low budget was important in those days!

Ended up riding a Trackmaster Triumph and still prefer a Trackmaster over most any other frame (except an Astro), but the wet frames were good. Actually, if I decide to ride one more half mile, it is going to be on a wet frame 750 Triumph

Rs750

Last time I was in Dallas I heard there was an RS750 on display at Al Lamb's Dallas Honda, but I didn't get a chance to go see it. I was back there for Christmas so I went to have a look. The bike belongs to Terry Poovey and I believe it is for sale for $25k.

My boy and the bike.


Right side external oil filter, shift lever, and brake lever. This picture was taken through glass so it kind of sucks.


This is the shift lever jack shaft on the front left side of the crank case.

Oil tank of a dry-frame too small to make it that far?

thanks! they were different bikes, both built by same builder.

grease burner vs grease burner

This is from my flat track days. I was either going under or the twin was going around. At any rate the twins had the wrong kind of power for short track (too much too quick)

Two of my favorite action shots!


And Kenny "workin it"! I read that this bike handled terrible, and had to be forced into submission, looks to be true!
