WALT METZLER'S SONICWELD TRIUMPH
Received some correspondence from Walt Metzler of High Springs, Florida. Amongst the many images he sent me was this Sonicweld Triumph raced by his son, Mike Metzler, and built by Walt.
Here is what he had to say...
"My son Mike and I have been doing AHRMA flattrack for about 15 years. He is the current Classic 250 National Champion. We built the 500 Triumph about 10 years ago so we could run two classes. I am a machinist, everything on both bikes is done by me. I made the triple clamps, the primary cases, engine mount plates and I build my own motors. Over the years I have made at least 20 custom primary cases. I like my bikes to run good and look good. We are planning to go to Geneva, NY next weekend and hope to make Peoria."
Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for more bikes built by Walt.
