Never owned until yesterday. Still haven't rode it. I'm not a 2-stroke guy or a flattrack guy but somehow I ended up with this beauty.

If I remember correct someone on here was knowledgable on these?

Its a 106 Astro motor and a 152 frame. Both engine and frame have quite a few mods I think.

I think Parks is the resident 'taco expert.


that is a very nice tracker, if you have no intention of racing it see if you can put it on the street.

I'd love to race it but I don't think that's in the cards for me. I also think it would be a shame to convert it to street. Pretty sure I'll passing this one on to someone else.

hahnda,
Nope, I don't flat track. I am a roadracer. I'll bet I could road race that with out too many changes. I just think it is cool. Are there any dirt tracks near us? I live just off 25 north of Menomonie, by Lake Tainter. I'll be back in WI in less than 2 weeks.

I used to live just west of Jakes on some dead end road. I rented the basement from a guy named Marty during college.

I remember going to a flat track race at the Red Cedar Speedway but that was probably 20 years ago. There is this:

I don't think I'm gutsy enough to try it, at least not on this bike. If I built up a bike from junk I had laying around I might go for it. I'd to worried about cracking this one up to actually race it.

I need to get down that way sometime. I have a CB160 to pick up that's probably less than 5 miles from you. In any case your still only 40 miles away.
