Hey Scootin we don't have flatrack racing here :cry: Is there anyway you or anyone else here could post a video or a link to some BSA's in vintage flatrack :?:

As someone who's watched over and over again all of the amazing scenes in "On Any Sunday" of BSA's, Triumphs and Harleys battling it out on the race tracks and especially with all those immortalised riders on proper bikes too :lol:

Is the vintage flatrack scene big in the states and are there many BSA's out on the track?

Apparently BSA would have won the AMA title in 72? but Triumph got their 750 twins approved for racing earlier and overtook them in the championship :cry:
And yes the more pics the better.

The picture of you in the pits Scootin, is great. Seems to sum it all up, dog bowl and beer in the shade, fuel in full sun, track in the background, dog, bike and pick-up everything seems to be there (do you ride it or push it up that narrow ramp?).

Love to see more pictures, moving or still.
How did you do last year?

There are a couple of B50's campaigned in Montana and 1 from Spokane and a few A65/A70's. Most vintage racers opt for TT500's. Cheaper to buy, build and keep together. But I give them hell with my superior riding abilities (Yeah Right) I push it up the ramp other wise I'd probably do a humpty dumpty. I think the AHRMA has a class called 70's Singles just for B50's and TT 500's

Hi JB
No flattracking in the UK???? try www.shorttrackuk.com or see vintage USA racing at www.vft.org

Thanks for that SB,

Looking at the UK website it looks to be a new venture over here with a 10 round championship at speedway venues?

The first shorttrack uk series was run last year. Some of the venues are speedway tracks but they also run a few longer tracks up tp 1/2 mile.
The pic gallerys from last year seem to have ben deleted from the web site but I think there is a CD for sale.No B50's though.
