The seller of this bike became interested in old British bikes because of his father – as noted in an interview on the Mot’Art Journal, “he has an old Triumph 750cc Bonneville, and the smells and sounds that came from that beast had me hooked.” So he found a Featherbed frame on eBay and bonded with his dad as they turned it into this beautiful Easy 2 vintage racer!
The bike was restored in the last few months, including new bearings in the bottom end, a crankshaft balancing, new valves/valve seats, replica Smiths speedometer, resurfaced clutch plates, and more. It has won several awards with the current owner, including:
Clubman’s All-British Motorcycle Show 2009 1946-1983 Flat Track/TT/Speedway Ridden Division
Japanese Motorcycle Heritage Foundation Promoters Award 2009
Antique Motorcycle Club of America Fort Sutter Chapter Best Competition 2018
