Welcome to Framecrafters!
Fc's S2RR-Seeley type frame can be used with the H1R or standard H1 engines. The H1 frames, whether a factory "R": frame, stock or even period modified had problems regardless of the rider and\or track conditions. The FC S2RR chassis kit solves all of the original handling issues while retaining a period correct style. FC also offers an exhaust system designed for your engine build and retains exceptional ground clearance. This bike was also fitted with one of our alloy fuel tanks. The pictures shown demonstrate 2 different builds. One on a R motor and the other on a standard motor both of which have been fitted with a dry-clutch.
The machine that started it all for Framecrafters the 1970 Triumph 750 Trident. Inspired by Rob North and Colin Seeley, Randy Illg and said time partner Jim Carlson built frame #1 for his Triumph Triple road racer. Originally raced as a production bike from 1984-1988 it was then transformed into the "Red" Formula 750 machine in the winter of 88'-89'. Retired in 1993 having been raced to some regional titles the machine took a semi-permanent residency in a dusty corner of the shop. In 2005 Karsten Illg , Randy's 2nd son, took the initiative to bring it back to life. While making some revisions to the original frame design the machine slowly began its road to restoration. Eight slow years of rebuilding, refinishing, replacing parts and pieces the machine transformed. Not having been on a track in 20 years the FC #1 Triumph Triple (now blue) was successfully raced at the AHRMA Road America event in June 2013. Piloted by Karsten Illg in the Formula 750 class he managed a 2nd place.
This Yamaha HL500 Motard was built by Rob Phillips of Husky Restorations. The basic chassis was modeled off the late 70's Yamaha HL500 motocross bike which was designed in Europe and raced on the World Motocross circuits to much success. After numerous discussions about the type of components to be used FC fabricated a revised version of the classic HL. Although similar in style the steering head angle was reduced and the rear section of the frame and swingarm was widened to accommodate wide 17" wheels and modern sticky tires. The suspension was shortened and the bike was completed with the highest quality components including a LCD rear view monitor. The bike has been featured in numerous articles and publications over the past year. For availability and turn-key specs visit www.huskyrestorations.com
