'72 XRTT Roger Reiman "Tribute Bike"
with Original Reiman Chassis
This bike has been in a collection owned by Scott Guthrie, legendary Bonneville racer, and holder of the most records on a motorcycle at Bonneville including the World Speed Record.
Scott wanted this bike to visually represent the Harley-Davidson XRTT in all it’s glory and as raced in 1972 and no expenses have been spared.
This XRTT Chassis & Motor has been set up as a tribute bike to Roger Reiman.
When Scott first started to race motorcycles, he formed a friendship with Roger. Scott at that time was unknown and Roger was a very well-known and well-respected personality in the Harley-Davidson world. Roger took time to answer some of Scott’s questions about Bonneville as Roger had also raced there.
As their friendship grew Scott became successful at Bonneville in part because of Roger’s help.
When Roger was national Champion, he carried the number “5.” Before he won his championship, he carried #55. As a tribute to Roger, Scott and his wife Ellen both raced at Bonneville with the #5 on their bikes.
Roger Raced this chassis in the 80’s in the “Battle of The Twins” at Daytona with an XR-1000 motor with Robison’s #155. The XR-1000 motor was not sold with the chassis, so the motor was replaced with an accurate 1972 Harley-Davidson Race Motor restored by legendary tuner Carl Patrick.
When this bike became available Scott knew he had to have it for his collection as Roger meant so much to him and to the world of Harley-Davidson Racing.
This bike restored by Hi-Speed is now being offered for sale.

per the factory race department.
This factory documented motor was purchased from a racer in Canada. This racer purchased this motor along with another from Scott Brelsford, Mark Brelsford’s brother.
Over time, the factory would update their motors with new ones and pass these motors on to a privateer that would eventually race them. Sometimes these motors were blown up,
used for parts or passed on to someone else. Luckily Scott Brelsford held on to these and sold them to this racer in Canada.
The test card of July 6, 1972 indicates the motor was formerly built for Bart Markel for Louden and then it was sent to Italy for Renzo Passolini for July and August racing in 1972.
The assembler for Passolini was
the legendary Bill Werner.
The motor test card of August 4, 1972
indicates that rider #87, Mark Brelsford used
this for a non-national race at Charlotte.
The assembler was R. Foshey.
Hi-Speed restored this motor and put it into an appropriate XRTT chassis with many NOS
and original parts just as the
factory assembled them in 1972.
The bike has the rare, under seat oil cooler and the rare, Airheart brake caliper and master cylinder. It has the large four-leading shoe Fontana front brake, road race forks,
Menani clip-ons and the very rare,
Ceriani double lug 35mm forks.
This motorcycle is extremely rare with its unique serial number and factory documentation.
Copies of the motor test cards will be included with the sale along with triangle race stand, full packet of literature on the XRTT’s.

Hourglass Racing XRTT For Sale
As many of you know Hourglass Racing started road racing XRTT's in the early nineties. During that time Hourglass Racing has won many races in the Vintage classes of AHRMA and WERRA. They usually had three bikes at the races, with one held in reserve as a spare bike for their most famous rider, Jay Springsteen, or as a parts source. This is that spare bike. It was never raced, however, it is fully functional and can be ridden. The bike has a fresh, never raced, Carl Patrick built engine. If it is to be raced, it will need the suspension tuned for the weight of the new owner. Other than that it is race ready. Please call for more details & price. 440-247-6021
