Building a flat track bike

FlatTrack

Looking to build a flat bike.

Been watching for years and years, getting my son into the peewee class, and starting to think about getting into it myself.

Looking at a tt500, or a xt500.

I don't want to get into a huge building project at this time, but would like to convert an existing bike into a flat tracker.

Anyone have any recommendations?

What frame is the best for the least mods?

Thanks for any insight!

cheeper to get one all done, my tt500 was 1800$ stock mod frame and jemco. saw one the other day for 800$ i think its still for sale. yamaha stuff is still easy to get. keep an eye on the vintage flat track site,posted link yesterday.

VTF seems to normally be west coast area's...

I found a few good deals on craigslist for a few hundred bucks here and there but they are gone normally the same day.

Very nice, want to donate one to the "Weber needs a flat track bike fund"......:worthy:

Yes, but a more modern design would be more competitive, and easier to ride.

I don't think I am allowed to post the answer to that here. You may PM me. I can help with design and idea planning on these posts.

I have an original Champion frame.

Wheels on, motor going in.

Looks good!

I'm just wondering, why do you need to mod the frame to FT? (I am just looking into flattracking and I have a few questions.. this is one.. sorry for the obvious NEWB question..)

the biggest ting is pulling the head angle back to the mid 20 degree mark(24-26 degrees. It will corner much better than stock rake.
