I know I'm going to regret this but, in order to finance another
racebike project that has languished in the corner of my workshop for far too long, I am now puting the GFTP 'Radio Flyer' 175 racer up for sale. This CL175 is a fresh and complete ground up build using many new parts. The bike was built to run in the Formula 160 roadrace class. (Those of us over 200 lbs. can run a 175 motor as a form of handicapping.)
The engine was rebuilt. The forks were gone through. Wheel
bearings were replaced. Carbs. were rebuilt. Racing brake shoes were
installed. No bolt was left untouched. Etc, etc. The bike has only been run at last months AHRMA / Bonneville GP race weekend. The bike ran excellent with only a couple small teething/fettling problems that were addressed during the race weekend. It now needs nothing but a full tank of fuel and a new rider in the seat. The motor is basically stock with the exception of some work done to the cylinder head to increase reliability.

New parts used for the build include:
OEM Honda pistons and rings
All engine seals and gaskets
Fork seals
Throttle cables
Clutch and front brake cables (teflon lined)
Carb gaskets
Bridgestone BT39SS racing tires
Vesrah racing brake shoes (front and rear)
Sealed type wheel bearings (front and rear)
Replacable clip-ons
Full set of custom GFTP bodywork with quick release Dzus fasteners
and R clips
Kibblewhite Black Diamond intake and exhaust valves. (OEM sizes)
Kibblewhite Ampco 45 valve guides
Kibblewhite valve springs
Kibblewhite Titanium valve spring retainers and keepers
Solid copper head gasket
Hagon rear shocks
Spun aluminum velocity stacks.
Custom adjustable rearset plates

Other features include:
Custom dual point ignition system.
Battery-less 12 volt system.
Intake and exhaust port casting flaws removed.
Intake manifolds and carbs port matched to cyl. head.
Matched length twin high pipe exhaust with megaphones.
Drilled brake hubs and backing plates.
Custom front brake scoop.

I've probably forgotten a few other details, but that should be
the gist of it. I spent a lot of time and had a lot of fun building
this bike and really hate to see it go, but the Triumph 500
project is calling my name.
I'm asking $2750.00
I've added a link below to a slide show of photos. The bike is shown in the photos with two different Avon upper fairings. The clear nosecone type is on it now. The new owner can choose the version they want.
Interested parties wanting to ask questions, needing more photos, wanting to see it in person, hear it run, blast it down a back road, etc., can contact me anytime at the phone number below.

Thanks guys. I'll really hate to see it go. It is a gas to ride.

Sorry Tex, but I can only accept United States pesos.

Jeff, My 7 and 8 yr. old boys have already coated the inside of the windscreen and dash area with spit from making motor noises while sitting on it in the shop. I promise to wash it before delivering the bike to the new owner.

(OK, some of the spit MIGHT be mine.)

The bike was sold to help another new racer earn his wings. A local 12 yr. old mini-motard racer is making the transition to roadracer next season. The dad bought the bike for the boy's birthday. Vintage racing marches on!
