We?re still on the steep uphill part of the learning curve; we?ve had little time to look at the other participant?s toys. I would like to thank everybody that expressed encouragement at El Mirage last weekend.  If you would like to read more about our 50cc motorcycle streamliner go to:     http://www.geocities.com/buddfab/buddfab3

Really enjoyed your web site and your little bike is so nice! Exceptional engineering and fabrication. Can't wait to see you at Bonneville, the 127 mark should be really possible.

One question, reading your web site regarding the actual runs it sounds like you are using the clutch to shift. I am sure that your little motor has a dog ring gear box, why do you use the clutch? Rode dirt bikes for years and only used the clutch to start and stop.

NEAT PIECE!!!!

It took about 90 seconds and a piston this size to accelerate 650 pounds to 100 mph.

Eric great car and what an accomplishment right out of the blocks.  I'll bet you do a lot more before it is over.  Hope to see you guys on the salt in August.

I do have one favor to ask.  I'm still on "dial-up" cry and it takes forever to get your pictures to download, so I've only seen a small portion.  Maybe you could save them in a smaller format (not screen size) for some of us less fortunate internet users Cheesy .

Good luck with the streamliner,

Sum

Absolutely stunning bike. Great website too. 100mph from 3 c.i. You guys certainly win the efficiency award. Would paint give less drag, or is the glass well waxed? Do you have ceramic wheel bearings? How about a double taco for the rider. It might not be a 300+ ride, but the challenge is at least as difficult. Good Luck.

Will you guys make speed week? If so, I think the NSU records are in deep trouble. We will be going after the SBF-500 (500cc blown fuel Streamliner) record set by NSU also in 1956 with our Team Arrow streamliner.

Good luck to us all.

For 2006 we plan to attend the El Mirage events, the Speed Trials by BUB (AMA Records), and the World Finals, so this year, our only chance to break NSU?s record will be in October.

Can you tell us what classes you hope to enter in each of those meets ?

The streamliner was designed around two stroke singles up to 175cc, but with a few modifications anything is possible.  John and I only tasted salt for the first time at the BUB event last year, so we thought it?s best to start slow.  We will probably run a 50cc motor for the rest of this year.  We built the sidecar to get some seat time while we develop new landing gear for the streamlined motorcycle configuration.  At the next El Mirage I think we will run 50cc SCS-F (sidecar streamliner fuel), after that the configuration depends on; time available and our success at developing new hardware.

The AMA and SCTA both claim speed records and pretend the other doesn't exist.
That really confuses the issue because it gives rise to the question " Who has the fastest what?"
The logical solution I would think would be for them to get together with a common purpose to improve the breed.
If it is supposed to be an amateur event anyway, the entries should be on common ground and let the promoters
stand on the strength of the event.
When you mix the objectives of promoters with amateur level LSR racing, the entrant suffers.
You have a great machine with a good start that deserves the best shot without the confusion of politricks.
