Next Months Project
« on: March 27, 2017, 12:00:09 AM »
Most of next month and the start of May will be spent getting this ready for Bonneville Salt Flats  :loco: This will be 3rd time lucky  :bang: And a lot of money spent, lost, wasted or how ever you'd like to describe it  :(

Wow!  :nrocks:

Very best of luck to you, that's an amazing looking machine... All your own work? Is there a build log?
Cheers!

I'll dig some pictures out  :thumbup: Basically I think it is an ex John Cliff drag bike  :scratch: it was in a very poor state when i acquired it, and it has been seriously modified since then  :headbang: My race partner did a lot of the fabrication work whilst i was away working I then built the bike when I was back in the UK. The bike has been shipped to the Salt Flats twice now but it has never run there due to the event being cancelled twice  :( So this year should be third time lucky  :med:

 I'm sure it will run as good as it looks, which is spot on.


Good luck
