Nothing Beats Getting Blown!

Before you guy's start getting any idea's....

Remember in my earlier post's I said I would use every trick in the book to make this bike really bite!

Enter the supercharger!!!

I have just procured a supercharger or "blower" with the generous help of a English gentleman.

Now starts the tedious and maybe hazardous process of incorporating it on a outdated British single.

No believe me...supercharging a single cylinder bike is technically quite difficult.

Even if it is successfully incorporated, whether it will actually boost power or be more of a parasitic load is any one's guess.

I will post some pictures as soon as i start work on mating the superchcrger to the engine and chassis.

Holiday over back to the grind!

Just got back from the Ladakh ride...awesome yet again!The glorious monsoon rains have started in Poona.

I have a lot of pending business at the shop but I will start work on monster dog soon.

New plans for the dog, have it salivating at the mouth!
