Talking Track Days??

I was wondering if any of the cafe racer peeps actually "race"? Are there track day events specifically for cafe racer class bikes?? Anyone got info?
Thnx in advance..

A track day and a race are not the same. That being said, I've seen a couple of folks racing at CMRA on old triumphs.

One of the guys with the Triumphs at CMRA yesterday is a friend of mine. I am building with him four CB160s to start the vintage race division here in houston. The guy with the Triumph at CMRA actually races Pikes Peak and he was at MSRH yesterday to get the certification and test the bike. I have two cafe racers, a 75 Triumph Bonnie 750 and 73 Honda CL350 and there is a cafe racer meet up here in Houston, Houston Ton-up, and few of those guys go to the track but very rarely with a cafe.

They fit perfectly with my lightweight class. Give me a call, and we can discuss it.
