Triumph Dominates Big Bear again in 1957

Look at that front wheel! Nice evidence of how hard Bud rode his race bikes. The front wheel hub and brake is from a 1955 T110 and looks to be laced to a 21" rim. Other than that his TR6 looks to be fairly stock with the exception of the custom exhaust pipes and the air cleaner with chrome cover. On page 22 you can see that during the race the bike did not have the new 1957 gas tank badges on it. I still need an old desert sled style air cleaner like this for a couple of my Triumph pre-unit scrambler projects if anyone can help.
