Great looking work. Just curious, isnt that small cooler going to get packed with salt pretty quickly hanging down that low with it coming off the front tire?

Hawkwind, some might be interested in what you have spent doing it as you say


the author /builder practices the time honored minimalist approach ,minimum ,money,time ,talent,tools and everything

also how did the lower bearing machined recess end up after the welding around it??? ie did you check for distortion? outa round

The typical year for Australia, doesn't pick up any salt that will pack...

Their salt is very hard and almost like running on pavement...

Unless you are an American contigent that goes over with like, lets say 4 motorcycles, then it will rain and get salt pack...

Thanks, I thought it was like Bville salt and it looked to me like it would just pack solid with salt off the front wheel by the time it was to the timing traps

The last 3-4 years the salt at b'ville even off course has been really hard even off course.  I remember when if you got off any of the roads you could fill up your whole fender in a very short distance.

Gazza ,bearing race /cone went in no probs , and it turns smoothly without any resistance , I did not measure before or after ,as for the cost , its all relative ,which ever way you look at it speed costs , and anything that one can do to  keep that cost to a minimum is a bonus , infact thats the only way some can do it,anyone who has some basic skills and a good hobbyist tool kit and is prepaired to have a go can save a motza and get a heap of satisifaction to boot
, I base this against those ,fortunate enough who only need to "write big cheques " for billet and bling everything ,or the lucky ppl who have a sponser or two to sholder the burden ,as to what it has cost to date ,way to much but many 1000's  less than having someone else do it all

Well I have been very busy since the last post , turned my hand to designing and making a complete new set of bodywork , the pics below show it all loosley fitted so I can mark out the final paint designs and finish the paint , it all fits reasonably well ,most of the parts are fiberglass ,each one made as a one off ,I have added the base colour (metalflake silver ) and its rubbed back ready for the final colours , the tank is a dummy and covers the inlectors and plenum and other stuff , It would be interesting to see how aerodynamic or not it is ,anyway back to the shed as I have lots more to make before its complete and March is just around the corner









I will add more as Its completed ,looking forward to trying it out

Very Nice Gary. I hereby knight you into the royal order of OBRT. (Owner,builder,rider,tuner). Very few do it all. Big numbers are sure to follow. Hopefully a sponsor will appreciate your dedication. After 30 years I am still looking for someone to sponsor the tail wind.  cheesy  Best of luck this March.  Larry

I was fortunate enough to see a liner get a tail wind both ways in time for
 a 2 hour turn around.
Sadly he was not up to record speed yet but it was great planning.
Finally they did it with no wind, no spare parts, or enough fuel for
 another run.
 When he did set a record it stood for 16 years. wink
