Jeff Lessley's Titan Flat Tracker
Jeff had just completed his 500 Titan and raced it for the first time at Rd 8. It took an incredible amount of work to get the twin to fit into the Redline frame that wasn't made for it. New swing arm (Champion) mounting position to get the counter sprocket alignment correct, new rear motor mount system, etc, etc. Mr Ed rolled up a couple of nice fatties that give the twin a fantastic howl. It was smoking a little excessively due to maybe, an unplugged hole from the old auto oil system. No one minded, infact ,can you ever get too much bean oil aroma? Jeff rode it in his normal spirited ,stylish way and it looked like it was handling great. Let him get the bugs worked out and watch out modern 450s.
