    Triumph

    One more time, I found some more stuff [8)]

    This time Triumph. Supposed to be an old Trackmaster Triumph frame with T140V motor etc. (plus another bonneville etc)

    My question is does anyone know of any identifying features for the trackmaster frame vs others ie staracer? I was told the staracers had a star stamped near the neck on the gusset.

    I wish I had a picture for you but I don't. I'll see if I can come up with something

    One other point, He pointed out on the swingarm where you can see very old sticker residue where it looks like the old trackmaster stickers were stucks, one on each side. Those are no longer there so can't comfirm. I figured this was a positive.

    I understand the starracer is a copy of the trackmaster. I don't know if there's a significant difference in terms of geometry, materials or value between the two. Did you intend to race it or put it on the street? Seems a shame to have a racing frame on the street...

    Park it in my living room [:I]

    I dont really know what I will do with it. Most likely it will never see a track and may not even see the street being I have no title for it. I may be able to do a special construction or steal the title from the bonneville. However then that leaves me with the bonneville with no title. I guess I could always title and plate the bonnie then just throw the tags on this one when I ride it. No one will know the difference.

    I have a ceriani front end and the guy has some nice excel shouldered rims for it. The motor has had some work done as it was a true race bike. Raced by a local guy who passed away.

    I'd like to know if its really a trackmaster before pay a premium for a name.

    It is not the square top tube frame either. Its round with the oil in frame cap right behind the neck.

    Once again, not sure of the top tube differences, here's the link to staracer;

    I know the trackmaster original frames had a diamond shaped ID plate on the left side of the steering head gusset...

    It looks like this one. I've seen the round ones and the square ones. Maybe different years.

    It is nickel plated as well.

    The motor has been built up some and converted to right hand shift which is pretty cool too.
