First Motorcycle National Drag Races

Circa 1953 in good ol' California. Rich Richards is the man to watch. He was one of the top Triumph tuners for the next 15 years.


  1. Nice, the Lil' Pam Triumph and the HD Brute. Choice motorcycles to conquer the 1/4 mile strip!

  2. The Lil' Pam and Pam Too are a couple of the most important Triumph speed record bikes of all time. I know that one of the Rich Richards bikes has survived as I have seen pictures of it taken in SoCal. I think he is one of the great unknown's of American Triumph Tuning history. I'll do my best to change that...

  3. Paul - Thats rad. Thanks for another great post! Stretch
