Nice! Did he say a production Triumph did 140 through the speed trap? I thought they were supposed to be stock?! Must have been at the bottom of a hill.

Stock factory bike? I think they had rules and some degree of tuning freedom for production based bikes, they were using full fairings and special parts that maybe were meant to be available as options.

Tony,

If you have a chance to read Shenton's book, you will find that what Mark says is correct. Upgrades such as cams, aluminum rims etc,etc, provided the components were available from the factory to the public, were all considered to be legal.

Anyway, once this again proves Triumph is Numero Uno :bigt. This goes without saying of course as everyone knows this to be fact already except for a few misguided souls[Linked Image]but thought would mention it here again fer their continuing edification grin

P.S. Thoroughly enjoyed the video

Well I was kinda havin' a laugh as they say. Seems like you should be able to get away with a TT spec production racer in the Hvywt Prod. class eh?

I would think that most of what was used in TT Production is legal under AHRMA rules except, of course, fairings, rear-sets and clip-ons that are specifically prohibited by the AHRMA rules.

I also feel that extended inlet tracts are questionable but have seen other Proddy racers with them and no one has protested them so must be OK - wouldn't bank on that though.

Just my humble opinion here me being humble an'all grin Grandpaul may want to step in on this one [Linked Image] grin

Tom .. Thxs for sharing that great film on IOM Proddy racing. I've sent the URL to a bunch of friends around and about. Our pal Jackie at Unity Equipe tells me she spotted The Man John on a wall spectating.
Hey, those guys were Fast !! oohh yeah.
