The chassis

Well i still havent got the gearbox! so in the mean time i worked on the all important frame.I have changed the rake angle on the front end.I have also stretched the bike by nine inches and lowered the groung clearence to 3.5 inches.

The idea on a drag bike is to increase the wheel base for better straight line stability.The fork rake angle is greater now , so high speed wobbles should be a thing of the past.
