Cool Pics

Found these on another site. They are pics from a "Classic" trackday in Norway. Some very cool old trackbike. I especially like the rigid singles, must be a wild ride.

that would be cool to own a vintage race bike like that. Wonder how different it feels to ride/lean on one of those compared to a modern sportbike?

Great photos. I enjoyed that. If you are ever intersted in building something like any of those old bikes, pick up a Walnecks Cycle Trader and/or attend a Buzz Walnecks show. They have one in Grayslake and one in Sandwich Il.

seems like it would be hard to replace anything if it breaks on one of those though...

In some cases yes it's going to be hard to find parts, the good thing is that engineering was a lot less complicated so a competent machinst can whip up a replacement. It's nice if you know a machinist, or are one, because a machinist's time is expensive.

A lot of times replacement parts are relatively easy to get as people have broken that same part time and time again and replica replacements are already in some what of a production.

I'm butchering an old Honda, I've been suprised at the number of companies that specialize in replacement parts and custom stuff. I'm keeping my budget under $1000, lets see what I come up with.
