Looking for a beautiful vintage racing car that might need a little TLC to get back on track? If so, this stunning 1972 Triumph Trackmaster road race Replica might be just the bike you’re looking for. It’s not a street bike, but if you want to take it to the track, it will be more than happy to ride.
He is protected in Portland, Oregon, but before he goes to the track, he needs to be handcuffed a little. The seller says it had a full restoration in 2002 but has not been carried out since. In the comments they say: “I tried to start it today. The pile trucks were stuck, so they overtook it, I ordered some new plugs and I will try again tomorrow. It has tons of compression and good spark though.”
That said, it will be a glorious thing if anyone is right. Trackmaster frames began when Triumph talked with racing tuner Ray Hensley in 1967, to see if he could build some custom frames that he could officially stamp with Triumph part numbers. Why make all this effort? Racing rules of the time, of course! If only OEM parts are allowed, then it would be better to bring out the best OEM parts we can!
Today, the Trackmaster name is revered among lovers of vintage road bikes-and some street bikes. Although they were built specifically for track use, a builder named Heinz Lange was determined to build a triumph of the lawful Trackmaster framework that could be seen on the bike EXIF in 2019. One look and you will see that it is very special.
A road bike really needs more than a well-built frame. It is created by the 750cc parallel twin engine of a 1969 TR6R and mated to a converted five-speed gearbox of not-known origin. Carbs Mikuni, a belt drive primary, a stroke exhaust system, Grimeca double-disc front brakes and a single disc at the rear, a Ceriani fork and work surprises illustrate that this was, indeed, a serious construction.
It also comes with a beautiful front fairing with a clear bubble windscreen, along with a solo standing fiberglass section made by tank shop in Scotland. Custom chassis and an alloy fuel tank that attracts fuel-free storage inside complete the composition. If you win, you get this bike, a back seat and an Oregon sales bill.
