Let’s get right to the point. There’s a certain style and feel we try hard to maintain at 95 Customs. Our attention is focused on items from a different time, and on people, places, and things with sporting intentions. So it stands to reason that, while we motorcyclists need to stick together and embrace riders with different proclivities than we may have, we are not a Harley Davidson site, per se. Except for the 1972 XRTT 750.
It all started wen the folks at BSA, in an attempt to drum up some publicity, initiated a race series in the UK called the Trans-Atlantic Match Race Series. It consisted of six races that pit British and American bikes against one another on road courses. The conventional wisdom was that the Americans would be hilariously outmatched, since most the high-level riders from the States competing on dirt ovals. The dirt ovals are, oddly enough, where the XRTT got it’s start.
