Been pretty busy with work and the predator 212 build lately, but I did sneak in some time for the drag bike.

I figured out how far the forks needed extended and made up inner sleeve tubes that will be rosette welded in. (Yes those are solid aluminum blocks the bike is sitting on) I went with a thicker wall tubing for the extension tubes and I think they will be fine, even though I'd prefer one continuous piece of tube this will have to do for now.

Figured out a better peg location, and seat location that work better for me so that's exciting, I just have to put the plan into action.

Need to get a little more time opened up and get buckled down on this thing! December is coming up quick.

Haven't had a chance to do anything further to the build, but next week is looking pretty good for shop time! Mostly have been working on my girlfriend's mini bike build, and trying to get that going.

Stay tuned, I am still working on the bike!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Got more done to the mini bike, and I think it's much better now.

I added the rear hoop bracing in to form a triangular shape, that supports the hoop much better, and I got the seat location locked in finally as well. I had to widen the seat hoop a little bit to fit it in, but it's in the right spot now. I'll be adding a brace to the seat hoop to eliminate flex as well.

Next l will work on the forks and then I will see how it works out, then the engine will get pulled so I can fully weld all the joints. Then it's on to foot controls, and brakes!

Great job on the build so far. Those Warrior 350s can handle some abuse. My dad used to ride his pretty hard around croom with his friends. And from what I've read these engines have about 22hp. Just make sure that the carb is properly tuned and that bike will be a blast.

Thanks! The 350 engines are pretty beefy, I ported the head pretty good, and added a stage 1 cam so I'm hoping I picked up a little bit more power. Either way having a transmission will definitely help keep the engine in it's power band compared to a conventional style mini bike.

Progress is slow, and now that I got sick it's a bit slower, but I'm still hoping to get it going soon!

So the final time crunch for the build off is on!
Lots of parts are on order, and I'm going to get this thing running/driving/stopping! Might not be all pretty, but it will be functional.

Got the seat board cut out, and I plan to seal the wood and upholster it.

I will be keeping it simple with only a rear brake for now, due to foot controls causing me great annoyance and displeasure.

I'll need to get my exhaust finished, electrical buttoned up and gas tank mounted but I still think getting it going before the 31st is totally possible!

Also going to use a foot shifter for now until the air shifter electronics get built.

Should be exciting, and fun!
