Ton Up NC #3c 2015 AHRMA Vintage Cross Country National Champion

2015 was a good year for Ton Up NC. Some great vintage British bikes were acquired by the club, Dave J was inducted as our newest member and the cherry on top was Chad B. being christened the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association's 2015 National Cross Country Champion in the Classic Intermediate racing class. Chad accomplished this feat riding his hand-built late 60's BSA Victor 441 thumper to victory several times over the course of the 2015 racing season. The bike was assembled over the years from odds and ends gathered at vintage swap meets, part donations, and good ol' blood, sweat and tears. If I'm not mistaken, total cost was less than $100. If you've never heard Chad kick the life into this great machine, you are missing out, the sound of this thumper is unmistakable and angrier than any Harley you might hear at the local poker run. In a nut shell, when you hear this beast going up behind you in the woods, your best option is to just get out of the way. Congratulations Chad on getting your first National Cross Country Championship (Chad was also a past AHRMA National Champion in Road Racing astride a Triumph T140.)

See you at the races in 2016 (click link for schedule)
