Neither myself, nor our project are dead...  I took a minor motorcycle spill which left my right forearm in a cast for 5 weeks total.  NOT recommended and NOT a good time for it to happen, but it did nonetheless...  dammit.

Anyways, here's some shots from the past however-many-weeks:

Frame prepped for motor installation:


Short-case of motor installed (local dealership mechanic did the work as I couldn't...):


Alternator side coming together:


Clutch side nearly completed:


Bodywork *just* before going off to painter: (note: I had to notch out the 'fuel tank' to lower it over the vertical head...  Kinda cool I think...)


Alternator cover together and I'm curing the loc-tite for the cylinder barrels & heads to be installed by this weekend:

Looks great! Are you going to be "healed" for the BUB speed trials?

That is a great pic! If I'm not mistaken, that part is where the go juice is injected.  evil

It's 717 miles to Wendover,
I just got my piston rings,
The bodywork is off to paint,
I just ordered my sponsor decals,
(somewhere) It's dark out, and
(someone) is wearing sunglasses...

HIT IT!

Lots left to do but we remain confident that all will come together in a furious whirlwind of caffiene fueled nights, overnight shipments and luck.  Lots, and lots of luck.

See y'all in 9 days time with an open-piped, nitrous-huffing, desmo-valved bike...

Well, for bringing up a non-running Ducati to Bonneville on Thursday the 8th, getting it running and through tech by Monday the 12th and running a 130.733mph on Wednesday the 14th...  I'd call the trip a success.

"Lucky" (as the bike has been dubbed) was broken-in and tuned on the salt and we were unable to get all the revs out of it that the motor is capable of.  We never got the motor to pull in anything north of 3rd gear either...  Plus, with the tune *this* far out of whack, there's no point in adding any nitrous to the mix so we left that out completely for this year.

Suffice to say, all of us on Team UnorthoDUX had a great time and will be back next year with a much more tuned and competitive bike to put towards the MPS750F record.  cheesy

Well, the quality isn't the greatest... undecided

but we have some video of our runs up on youtube:



The view is through the windshield of the recovery vehicle.
