Indian Sport Scout
1935 Indian Sport Scout. The bike was built to race vintage
flat track, never started and placed in a motorcycle collection. I have
lots more photos and information about this bike. This bike is
completed,can be oiled up and started or kept as a collection bike. 1.
Engine is completely professionally rebuilt with spec sheet and photos
of all engine internals. 2. Transmission was rebuilt by vintage
motorcycles northwest with recipts. 3. Final assembly of engine/trans
to frame was done at vintage motorcycles northwest. 4. Linkert carb is
restored/rebuilt. 5. Morris magneto and oil pump drive is rebuilt and
tested and has spark, drives off oil pump all installed. 6. No oil in
engine/trans need to oil up and start for the first time. 7. Red
gas/oil tanks are original indian tanks. 8. Front end is 1940 C-10 BSA
and all machine work is done to mount fork to frame and wheel to fork,
and ready to ride. 9. Front frame is 1934-35 indian scout. 10. rear
frame is special flat track racing replica, the replica was fabricated
to enable a higher stance of the primary from the ground, geometry is
set up for short track oval. the rear section is done. 11. Rear wheel
is quick change barnes type, axle, adjusters, chain line is done. 12.
Foot pegs, shifter and clutch pedal all fabricated. 13. Exhaust
pipes are display pipes and longer pipes would be better for
runability, the pipes on now have fabricated headers that fit over the
cylinder pipe boss, could simply add to the existing pipes. 14.
if a builder wanted to convert to street, i can see how to install disc
brake to rear wheel and how to build a custom alternator set up that
would drive thru the magneto slot in the rear of the inner/outer
primary, alternator would drive off clutch basket just like original
indian magneto would have. Washington title is on the motor vin and is
titled as 1935 indian, have washington horseless carriage plate.

Hi you guys, I'm over the water in Scotland.
I'm hoping someone can help identify this frame I recently purchased.
It came with a Triumph 650 unit engine in it, and a Kawasaki drum back wheel.
Not sure if it has been modified at the front down tubes.
I was told it was a flattrack, imported from the States.
Any thoughts appreciated, look after yourselves.

1971 Rickman-Zundapp 125 project. Includes a NOS red fiberglass body.
The body parts have some scuffs and chips in the paint from storage but
have never been used, the holes haven't even been drilled in the side
covers yet. Tank does have some rust on the metal lip. Originally
had baby Ceriani forks but I don't think these are the original forks.
Somebody started to install a Honda XL125 engine in place of the
original Zundapp and modified the motor mounts. I do not know the
internal condition of the engine, it turns over by hand but has been
sitting for decades and would need to be gone through. Forks feel
stiff, will need to be rebuilt. Also has a Hermann Fiberglass oversize
desert tank, blue seat pan (cracked), and one blue side cover. The
Hermann tank hits the points cover so it won't work with this engine.
Located in Palmdale, CA.

Looking for information, Obscure early Triumph 500 unit
twins. I have several ongoing projects as well as helping a local
friend with his.
Project #1: My friends one year wonder 1961 (depending on month
made determines the official model year) TR5AC # H187XX (not
releasing the last 2 digits to the public). Attch is a picture of the
dealership sticker it allegedly came from in SoCal. "Imperial
Honda Sales, 802 N. Imperial Ave, El Centro Calif, 353-0450,
Triumph-Honda-Husky" It has JoMo camshafts and evidence of a
racing history. Only a vague back story but allegedly the owner
of the bike was friends with the dealer and they also flew planes
together. It ended up at a Air strip in backwater California in a
shipping container along with some other bikes. Was rescued and 2
owners since. Based on Lindsay-Brooks book "Triumph in America" many
early Triumph dealers were encouraged to also offer Asian bikes
alongside their British bikes reasoning that beginners would eventually
want a "Real Bike" Hence a Triumph so this was not unusual a Honda
dealer would also sell Triumphs. I also am including a factory
brochure image of an original. But currently bike is far from original.
Current owner wants to honor the bikes history and heritage and either
restore it all original or as a period race bike. Any info or
Project # 2 & 3.
I purchased several bikes and parts from Pacific NW Hall of Fame racing
legend Ray Carrolls estate. Best known for Castle Rock TT and
Sidewinders, he not only raced, but was well known as a tuner, builder
and manufacturer of race bike parts and frames. Basically a whos-who
over the years dealt with Ray either on the track or parts or bikes to
repairs. I have several early unit 500 Triumphs that came from
him and 3 are the most interesting. Extensively modified and
customized. Its been fun researching them. However 2 frames were
painted a light blue color, shortened rear frame loops, customized oil
tanks, seats and tanks as well as foot pegs, skid plates and fuel
tanks. The third has a hard tail rear section. Engine stuff
ranges from creative genius to rode hard and put away wet, crippled,
and worn out. (but what a ride!) I have collected
some photos already of some of the local racers and events, But if
anyone knows any details or these might ring a bell please let me
know. Would be great to see some period photos. (Frames are T100
and early 60s to 65, several motors but early T100SS and
T100SC) I also have some parts from the old Milwaukie
Oregon shop F&W owned by "Fairly Honest Mike Ferrell" & Fairly
Honest Dick Weidenkeller" . One of the bikes I am building
in the spirit and tribute to the NW racing scene so any period photos
of early Unit 500s race bikes is appreciated.

** I already have most reference books, Triumph Tiger bible, Trophy
bible, Triumph racing in America, Triumph in America 1 & 2, and
some others. I also have been in contact with the VMCC Triumph Tiger
man Jordan in the UK who has been very helpful. See his website
for a wealth of info on unit 350 and 500s.
If you have parts for any of the above bikes, also interested in talking.
