Very clean and nice looking bike(s)... I'll bet they are a blast to ride! Would make a great commuter bike for running to work and back home, but I'd be awful tempted to just keep on riding!B)

What kind of forks are those, Dale?

I didn't notice this until just now, but is that a steering damper on the right side? I will probably regret asking this because my ignorance will be obvious,:blush: but why the choice of a steering damper for a street tracker? Could adjustable offset forks be used to achieve the same results?

Getta

The intention was to put a real race bike on the street.
@ the time........ real race bikes had just such a style steering damper.
I.E. Period Correct.

No kick-start, no "E" start and until recently........... no side stand.

Bare Bones.

Cheers!

Hi Carl,
The motorcycles have street plates, registration and insurance.
I make no claim that either are street legal.

No front fender, horn or battery are additional no no's.
But hey, it's only a fix it ticket.

Flying under the radar is paramount.
In public view....... wheelies, sliding, speeding and / or snapping the throttle will certainly get you a ticket and / or arrersted.

The above pictured is my Street Tracker. It's been parked with a non-op for several years now. I can bring it current and ride if I wish,
however, I refrain from such as I get too cocky.

Dale---I have a set of (42mm) Ceriani's in KOSMAN Clamps that are "grown up" versions of the earlier "35mm baby Cerianis"...
How many differant diameter forks of this style did Ceriani manufacture???
If you have a "link" to the info---please post it...

Thanks

Hi John,
The forks were available in a number of diameters the largest of which I believe to be 51 mm.
Our forks were Ceriani sold as Forcelle Itilia. AKA Paioli.

Once upon a time Steve Storz was the US Importer.

How hard is it to get it plated? You can find quite a few Rotax's around but how hard is it to get it to the street. I would love to have one.
