Default 2016 - Joe-405 "Mini Me Racer"

I have decided I'm in again...............

Yes I know the chassis is partially made but I'm building it anyways so I'm helping the entry list get bigger............

The suspense is gonna be good til I print the flyer off.

Welcome Joe!
I'd like to wish you "Third times the Charm" But that would be sportsmanlike and I want this one!
Cant wait to see what you come up with, you always have good stuff.

That just gets you DIY style points!

I'm gonna print the sign at work tomorrow. And I'm building it there also.

I can tell you it's gonna be ALOT faster than the barstool. And I've been 60+ GPS'd on it ! This is gonna be a blast. And I'm using a original flathead block and OEM crank. That's about it on the stock parts tho. Haha

Thanks. It was really hectic as we are backed up at work. And Mondays are the worst. I will try again tomorrow. The only parts that I have are the flathead engine that's torn down for machine work. Chassis parts are getting shipped today or tomorrow.

Well its partially welded anyways............... Oh wait maybe not !

Got the main frame and front wheel and tire in today to start cutting it apart and rewelding and modifying for my 80+mph speeds i am after. And we are going with a real clutch from 3d motorsports for the real pucker up factor. haha

Building some custom wheelie bars and a custom seat to match the whole bike so stay tuned for alot more to come really soon......................
