CW Garage: Ron Peck's Triumphs - First Look

A tale of two winners.

CW Garage: Ron Peck

The #27 bike is a 1966 Triumph flat-track racer I built in 2003-2004. It won the British Modified Class at Legend of the Motorcycle in 2007. The engine is totally modified with Jomo 15 cams with "R" tappets, alloy pushrods, lightened and polished rocker arms, lightened cam-drive gears, Morgo 750cc barrels with 11:1 forged pistons, R&D valve springs, ARD magneto, kick starter removed, crankcases lightened and polished, alloy clutch basket and plates, stator removed. The chassis has a Ceriani roadrace fork with Norton springs, 4:00 x 18 Pirellis front and rear, Koni shocks, Grimeca rear disc on a Barnes hub, Knight fiberglass tank and seat, frame built by Eddie Mulder's tuner, lettering by Robert Carter, paint by Don Lee. This bike is modeled after one I raced in the late '60s and early '70s.

The black café racer is a 1966 Triumph engine in a 1972 Rickman frame. In 2007, I built it out of a box of parts I've had for years. It won its class at Legend of the Motorcycle in 2008. The engine is totally rebuilt: It has a Tri-Cor TT/Drag race cam and 11:1 forged pistons. The front brake is a four-leading-shoe Grimeca, the rear wheel has a polished and lightened '70s Triumph conical hub, both tires are Dunlop K-81s TT-100 4 x 19. The graphics are by Robert Carter, the paint is by Don Lee.
