Thanks Joe,

We certainly hope so.....

Only time and the salt will tell.

Fun project that may be street friendly as well.

Are you intending to add weight to the chassis?

I'm looking forward to see your speeds.  Cheers,

Thanks.....

We're fabricating 1/4 inch steel plates that will mount between frame rails directly under motor and transmission. Room for at least 4 possible 5....

Tough time sleeping lately................ Imagine that.....

Salt fever is highly addictive.

Ray, the upper mount for the rear shock will experience a lot of load.  Will the tube twist that it is welded to?

That is a nice build.  Lots of good thinking and craftsmanship.

Busa suspension axel to axel.

We are not trying to re-invent the wheel.

Just use the best of the best.

Headlights and a tail light after Bonneville'
