    Geeto...I mean real vintage...GP class, 1969 at the latest.

    I'd allow period aftermarket frame or hand made equivilant. This class would not be about easy or cheap. Probably a 500cc cap on displacement. Ala GP of the period.

    Time caps present their own problem because you don't get rid of the cb750 (1969) or the kawasaki h1 and h1r (1969). Plus, since the cb750 stayed the same through out the model run does that mean I could run my 70 or 73 or 75? Personally, vintage is 1975 to me (30 years), but hey it is your class. I'm all for it I'm just trying to get a good idea about it. Personally a no holds barred vintage class limited to the 60's would be nothing but brit bikes because there really isn;t anything big enough to battle the 650 triumphs and 750 nortons until the japs got their shit together. plus jap bikes are 1/4 the money to build a race bike and the jap parts are more readily interchangible with the older bikes making it cheaper to build a no holds barred bike.

    hello everybody thanks for spotting my tribsa. i shall put some more pics on soon. tribsa can also be found on www.tesperformance.co.uk, under classic fighter in the gallery. alternatively www.sophiainnsbruck.com under streetfighter shoot nice piccys you,ll see!!!! with regard to some comments i do own a 1982 kwak 1100 however it is standard red, the tribsa has been painted in a modern flip flop two pack which under different lighting conditions changes from a very light metalic green {a7ss} to agolden beige {a10 polychromatic beige} as on my stock golden flash the pictures taken here sadly only show the pea green which i appreciate is not its best shot and the pics are from the original build shots prior to transfers, it really deserves to be seen in sunlight to be appreciated.sorry to go on so cheers phil

    Hey Phil,

    I grabbed those images from the TES website, the streetfighters site didn't have any images but I saw the bike in the TES ad in the mag. It is such a cool bike it needed to be posted here. I'd love to know more about the bike like how long it took you to build, and what the creative process was like (why you chose the parts you did, etc...). Thanks for joining the group.

    hi again, the whole concept for the build originated from having seen an article in "classic bike guide" of another recently completed special, this was a more tamed version to mine, more in keeping with a traditional cafe racer. my mate had recently just had tes build a fighter so i went to meet alan {builder/engineer}and explained the basic critera which was to isolastically mount the t140 lump into an a10 frame incorporating a tubular monoshocked swingarm using all the modern anciliaries and cycle parts.i own and have always liked the round lines of the a10 so sourced a frame the engine followed as did the lyta tank. the rest evolved over a 12 month period with the knowedge and an eye for detail of alan. cheers phil
