Welcome to the forum. There is a fella that comes out to trackdays that rides a vintage Honda I think 450 that is cafe'd. He does pretty good considering the lack of power and primitive suspension. So good in fact he was an instructor for Texas Trackdays before they went belly up.

I have a '82 XS650 Yamaha that I made into a street tracker. Love the old school!
