I have restored every model of Sprint including ERS, CRS, CR, CRTT. I have done more SS, H, C, SX motors than I can count. I work on 250's, 350's, European, street racer, flat track, road race and every other kind of Sprint. We make Sprints for ladies beside the MXer's, and other designs we have built. Lancaster Sprint does not just restore bikes, we also like to design and customize new and different Sprints. A lot of our reproduced parts are made of new metals and alloys that last a lot longer than the old ones did and are lighter weight. We also can ship your parts, motors or even whole bikes anywhere in the world that has UPS or Fed Ex. We have parts and motors in Germany, Australia, Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, all over Europe, Canada and the USA.
Sold to Harley Davidson
like allot of the exciting things
about Ron and his Sprints started
at the Davenport A.H.R.M.A. races
and swap meet. At one of these
a few years after Ron got started
back into restoring and racing
was doing the usual bench racing
with the other guys after a race
and one of them had bragging rights
to the fact that he was friends
with some of the "Big Guys" at
Harley Davidson and they had asked
him to display some of his bikes
at the 95th Anniversary meet in
this was cool Ron casually said
here are some pictures of some
pretty rare SPRINTS I have restored.
Show them to the "Big Guys" if
you get a chance and see what they
think. About a week after he got
home Kay answered the phone and
when she asked who was calling
( she always has to screen the
salesmen ) her mouth dropped open
and she could hardly believe who
was calling. When she went to get
Ron and told him HARLEY DAVIDSON
was on the phone and wanted to
talk to him, Ron laughed and said "Yeah
tell them I'll call them back when
I can afford that new Sportster".
Check out the pictures of the Harley CRTT in the Museum here...
took about 3 min to get Ron to
actually answer the phone and when
he did he too had dropping chin
disease. When he finally got his
mouth closed the deal began. Harley
wanted to buy two of his bikes,
a 1965 competition road racer and
a 1967 competition dirt tracker.
Of course the bikes had to be delivered
by Ron and Kay to the plant in
Milwaukee. They would have to get
security clearance and take them
up to the private museum on the
upper floor. WOW when they got
up there they realized they were
seeing things allot of people had
never seen. There were projects
never finished, one of a kind bikes,
new proto types and even some rejects.
There were even army bikes dropped
from planes behind the lines, bikes
painted like a pair of blue jeans
( you would swear it was made from
denim) and an original that Elvis
owned that they traded a camper
for! While sitting in the "Big
Guys" office ( Tom Bulforts)
and getting a check they realized
that they were getting much more
were getting the bragging rites
to the most exciting SPRINT memory
they would probably ever have.
