Don Castro

 I was flicking through a friends old issue of "Sideburn" mag' (no7 i think) and i saw this amazing Triumph. 
It was built for and riden by Don Castro at the 1972 San Jose half mile. But it was banned after one race due to "slip-streeming rules".
 It has  frame built by Red line and the body work was made by a fiberglass company that sponserd the bike.
This bike has been restored by a fella called Don Miller, Its a bloody amazing job.
 Here it is in action.
I don't think this is the same bike but it is Don Castro and it is an amazing picture.
