Did you ever build a Tracker?

Made three lof them, loved them!Painted them with left over sprey car paint belonging to dad.
All three stolen from the back yard,never forgave the people of Middlesbrough for that.😂
My dad never forgave me for nicking his paint.
 
Cow horn handlebars and lose the mudguards basically,some also dropped the front brake,they were good for wheelying.AKA a rig up round our way. I’m surprised seventies kids lived past fifteen..😎
Bigger wheel on the front,and lolly pop stick in back wheel spoke for full effect!😎

Did you ever go to Clairville stadium for a sneaky spin around the track?
Not so easy with ape hangers.
When I came to the Poly, I bought a second-hand Falcon San Remo, with a 5 speed block and revo - shifters [No SIS in those days].
I went to watch a few of the National Sprint League events, but was sad at the way it was let go.
 
I remember a guy called Alan Burgess made all the kids in our street in Grangetown bikes. When it came to mine he had run out of seats. I had to stand up and pedal all the time.

My dad was working away from home and when he came home one weekend and seen me on it he took me to Criteria Cycles in South Bank to buy me a chopper bike.

The chopper was that heavy, I had to stand up and pedal. 🤣🤣🤣
