Kevin Victor sent a link to this site to me. He thought members here would be interested in seeing the British Bikes on it.

Very nice bikes. I was gonna not post this on Britbike but since it is now topical, this bike came up on BIKEEXIF, a custom bike site. A Triumph in a Trackmaster frame, from Germany.

Here's a couple pics of my T140 C&J AHRMA Sportsman 750 road racer. Instead of starting out as a street bike that imitates a race bike, it is a race bike, that can be ridden on the street. It has 38mm Marzocchi forks, Works shocks, ridged Akronts, Barnes qc rear hub, Performance Machine disc, Grimeca and Brembo calipers, extra gearing. Nourish crank, Carillo rods, Arias 111:1 pistons, gapless rings, Megacycle 1060 cams, Kibblewhite valves, R&D valve springs and tops, Morgo rotary oil pump, 36mm Mikunis, Newby belt drive, Rex Caunt PVL twin plug ignition. It is licensed for the street, but if it were to be ridden on the street, it would need some wiring work, and I would suggest changing to the set of stock pistons and cylinder in the box in my garage--the Arias pistons are a bit much, and adding the kickstand I have. Otherwise, it is mellow, handles a dream. I built this about 30 years ago, raced it quite a bit, changed out tons of parts, to get it to its current configuration, and all the high end race parts were (are) necessary for it to run hard reliably, year after year. I quit racing in 2017 and it is now for sale, in the want ads here, and there is also a thread on it in the competition bikes section here. I have also raced a Trackmaster dirt tracker, and this bike with a Red Line frame, and by far this C&J is my favorite.

My B50 Street Tracker

With a JE piston, Sifton HT cam, dual plug, ported head, it packs a pretty good punch. Also it's a bit loud.

I just had to wipe off my key pad!...….Drool all over it. Thanks for the posts guys! Awesome. Maybe some day I will wake up, and the dream will be alive, and there will be one of these in my shop. Thanks again for the super pics and stories. Kevin

Modern bike manufacturers spend £££$$$ on styling and typically end up with bloated blobs; some bloke in his shed creates something lithe and purposeful.

I particularly like the Sportsman 750 that's for sale, although Alaska is a long way to go to view a bike

Well, everyone's doing things according to their motivation. The bloke in his shed is one of us, looking to create a bike that WE (and he), the admirers and riders of lean mean machines, would like to look at and ride.

The modern bike manufacturers are styling and creating bikes for the tasteless loons who believe in TV reality shows, spend their life on FB and video games, and want to look like the poseur-du-jour on the latest tube, so no wonder their bikes reflect it!

Well, a small tank, different bars and fenders, a loud exhaust, you got vintage Brit street tracker...That's also style and in many cases serves no functional improvement..I strip down my bikes to make them easier to work on ,and a bit for style...But I like to retain stock like seats for a bit of comfort and vibration reduction..Same for reloacted foot rests, little ones with thin or no rubber aren't all that comfy...But what do I know about style?, I still wear T shirts, jeans and leather boots just like I did in 1970.....

What's wrong with denim shirts? You can't beat double denim.

Well, as to my 750 Sportsman Champion Triumph framer, I’m in Alaska but the bike is in Los Angeles at a shop, the out by the LAX airport, ready to be looked at. Garage Company, 1303 130th St., Gardena CA 90247 and you will want to talk to Yoshi Kosaka. Telephone (310) 330-9933 Yoshi is an old friend and used to haul my bikes to the races. That’s still a long ways from England but much easier to get to!

i thought my lock-up was a bit of a trek at 6 miles away!

Flying to Los Angeles to view a bike would be a talking point,
