A few photos from the Sonoma trip. Mostly from Dick Mann’s place in Nevada. We traversed the west for two weeks with the Daytona winning BSA. Without a doubt being hosted by Dick Mann for an afternoon was the highlight of the trip. He was an excellent host. We talked about racing for hours. When we pulled up to his place he was out working in his shop, where he is still building British bikes. Thanks to everybody that helped make this experience happen.

Lots of progress being made on the custom 6T.
Some photos of our latest score. We are now sorting and piling bikes and projects together. This was a good stash. Includes a Hurricane, a few other triples, a Goldstar, T100R dirt tracker, and more.
This is a roller project we put together a while ago and parked. We are now engulfed in the build process. This is going to be done up in the style of an early 50′s custom Triumph, using only period parts. Not your Brahh’s chopper.
Recently restored and rebuilt the wheels for both of Gary Nixon’s 500 racers. We scrubbed and restored these period race tires back to life. This last weekend Triumph won the Daytona 200 for the first time, since Gary was victorious abroad this very same Triumph in 1967!
One more round of photos of the finished bike. We ended up switching to new Amal Concentric carburetors to simplify starting and tuning versus the big GPs.
a PDF copy of the November 1956 article from Cycle magazine featuring the story of the Texas Ceegar. Also a couple of bonus photos from the restoration in the 1980′s, the re-restoration after the fire, and a few shots of it in Harley Davidson trim. Later in life, the Ceegar was fitted with Harley motors and run on the salt.
