Swiss Misfortune

SEL-MOTION Motorsports project Swiss Misfortune is a tribute to those Triumph twins that campaigned the AMA Flat Track series of the 60’s and early 70’s.  The hand made aluminum fuel tank and seat capture the distinctive lines of those vintage race bikes.  Race influences continue in the YSS piggyback shocks, Earl’s AN oil line fittings and Zard 2 into 1 header system.
