Dr Who

Noodling around on the internet , I came across this article by the inimitable David Edwards... http://hellforleathermagazine.com/2010/12/time-machine-triumph-when-trackmaster-met-tracy/ ...great article , which touches on three of my favourite things ; Triumphs , Flatrackers and Chopper History , got me wondering whether these frames were some of the inspiration for the Motor Shop frames that came later ? Check out this article from 74s Forever and see what you think .... http://74sforever.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/history-of-motor-shop-frame-bill-york.html
It`s probably easier to see in the `before`shot of the Triumph with the blue tank , the Trackmaster frame has the same curving downtube and Flat Track style Looptail , although I must say the Motor Shop style axle mounts inside the loop look neater .
