Mike McSween of Florida (NAKTC Member)
Bike: 1972 H2
Mike is the original owner of this numbers matching 1972 H2. He bought it in Japan
David Hilton of Texas (NAKTC Member)
Bike: 1974 H2B
a '74 H2B is ugly duckling? Look again, anyone would be proud to own an
H2B that looks like this one.
'75 H2C may be more desirable because of its sleek look and rarity, but
'74 H2B stands its own ground
with a more muscular look. David "Captain Hilton" did a heck of a job
on this bike.
Brian Hilvety of Illinois
Bike: 1970 Tracy H1
|The bike was
originally a 70 H1. Brian built it for a customer from Chicago. It was
brought to Brian as a rolling chassis, but he ended up doing a
frame/cases up job on it. The frame had to be modified to fit the pipes
that he allready had. They were for a later H1, so Brian cut the rear
footpeg/pipe mounts off of a later frame. He welded them to the 70
frame, and added mounts for the rearsets & then powdercoated it. He added a
Ducati super bike steering damper.
As far as the Tracy body, Brian didn't supply info but the picture speaks for itself. Brian's work is recognized worldwide by now.
John Brewton of Orange, CA (NAKTC Member)
Bike: 1976 KH400
|John has been
collecting triples for about 15th years. He owns more than a dozen
triples and most of them are in great shape. This KH400 is one of the
best examples of an unmolested bike. This is also a 1st green 76 KH400
to make it as triple of the month.
More background story on this bike later when John supplies more info, so stay tuned.
Thom Landon of Arizona (NAKTC Member)
Bike: 1972 H1-B
|This is Thom's favorite triple, and he owns many over the years. It is an NOS restored bike. Thom bought it a few years ago and have been adding little things to it as time goes. He still has a set of NOS dual disc calipers that he's going to put on it when he can find another NOS disc and some related little hardware. This is the 2nd H1B that made it here as triple of the month.|
|Triple of the Month (June 2006)|
|This is a revision of a previously triple of the month. It looks better and should perform better, too. It should be at Mid-Ohio this year. Good work Greg!|
|Triple of the Month (July 2006)|
|This is Brian's 3rd triple as triple of the month....hey...what can I say about this guy as a restorer and enthusisast.|
|Triple of the Month (August 2006)|
Hey YT good to hear from you.
Here are some "unpublished" pictures of the ex-DuHamel bike.
Here is a quick description of the bike and its history.
It was built
at the end of the 72 season
in a batch of 4-5 bikes which had a special works frames. These frames
The bike was
raced by the
beginning of the 74 season these
bikes were made obsolete by the new 74
This is the
bike that Yvon
rode in the match races and at Imola. He
won one of
the races at Brands Hatch but had a number of engine problems over this
The engine fitted to the bike was actually a replacement fitted after
mechanical failure and was probably "borrowed" from
