As it stands

The bike as it stands, well almost.After the speed run 2008 i decided to rebuild the bike ground up correcting all the flaws of the previous three years.this will be a time consuming and expensive affair.i have decided to totally rebuild the engine clutch and gearbox.I will also extend the frame by roughly 6 inches thus increasing the wheel base adding to the high speed straight line stability and also modify the front forks and rear sub frame to reduce ground clearence.
