Couple more pics of my Trackmaster Trident back in the corner of the shop. Kind of pretty, maybe should make a lamp out of it.
Has modern rims and Goodyear DTII that I put on a few years ago, can't remember why . . . still have the original rims and Pirelli tires from the 1970's.
Again - never started, never out of the shop. Kind of a waste I guess.

Been thinking about my Trackmaster. Looking at the pics I see that also replaced the original Ceriani triple clamps with Staracer aluminum clamps when I changed to modern tires and rims.

I visited Staracer in Wichita, Kansas several years ago and bought the wheel rims, spokes, and triple clamps. Staracer was Roger Attebury and Larry Kennedy. Spent a couple of hours with them. Larry was a machinist and made the well-known 'Kennedy' hubs and other flat track components. He made the triple clamps too. Good guys, really knowledgable in flat track stuff, but now out of business I guess.

I bought the gas tank and taps from Neil Keen in St. Louis. A great racer and another good guy. Neil is in the AMA Hall of Fame. Died a couple of years ago.

Trackmaster needs a seat. Had one on it once, don't remember what happened to it. Probably went on another bike.
