This frame was sold on eBay on October 13th for $75! It is for a T120/140 and apparently uses an OIF swingarm. The eBay auction # was 190039429063.

You can't tell from the picture but is it a single or double down tube?
If it's a double it could be a Rickman. Any numbers?

Mike.

It's double, but doesn't resemble a Rickman in any other way. It is similar (as the ad says) to an early Trackmaster, but doesn't have a built-in oil tank/backbone. Ray Hensley's original Sonicweld frames didn't have a built-in oil tank either, but I don't recall then having this frame's unusual double backbone.

Judging from the setting, it's a dirt bike frame. laughing

all of Ray Hensley's Sonicweld frames for drysump engines had an oiltank welded into them
Ray only made them for one season (1968) and then went on to do the Trackmasters starting in 1969. His first Sonicweld Triumph frames went to Nixon and were rigids...
he built one Sonicweld dirttrack swingarm frame for Nixon to ride at the end of the season Louisville race of champions (that frame is in Texas)
Ken Watkins continued to build Sonicwelds after he and Ray disolved their partnership
this is not a Sonicweld or Trackmaster

Thanks, bill. I figured you would be the one who could definitively rule Hensley's frames in or out. But do you know what that thing is?
