Joe Daly originally built this bike. Doug Cook from ARC Fabrications did the frame and exhaust. Joe ran it with a XB9 motor in both APS and A. Buell front end with Buell wheels and an Airtech body. Held 5 land speed records at one time.

I am building a XB12 based motor to run in APS/F 1350 with its primary track to be Loring.

Gentlemen,  Thank you.   I am anticipating Jesse will build a much faster and better machine than the original.

Jesse,
You told me you were itching to build something but you didn't know what.  I guess this means you've made up your mind.  You seem to have a good foundation to build on.  Looking forward to see it run at Loring.

I messed up in the first post and don't see where I can edit. It should read APS/PF-1350

Thanks Tom, looking forward to it. When I run the dirt bike it is a very labor intensive weekend, basically to run that little 250cc engine to set the speeds I have set I am pulling the pin on the grenade and waiting for it to pop. With that and the fact I do more with running the event it just wasn't going to work.

So last fall I bought a 2004 XB12 that was going to be a LSR build. It was just too nice of a bike to run. 4500 miles, spotless, so I got rid of it and ended up running the RC51. One thing leads to another and I end up with this bike from Joe. Original plan was to run a Blast motor in it. Joe talked me out of that thankfully. I am in hopes I can have a 160 mph bike that should be a low maintenance bike...hopefully.

We fix heads like that here in my shop. Harley uses good Aluminum in their castings, so done right it should be fixable.

Keep in mind that, with that much welding, the head can move around a lot, so checking all machined areas will be required. Even the valve angle can move.

Just a quick update and not a lot to update. Head was repaired, now they just need Dans magic. Cases and cams were sent to Dan also for case boring and the cores to build the new Red Shift cams. In other words it is just a waiting game now.

A little disassembly work this weekend. Salt is sure hard on things. The swing arm had a small blister of paint salt got under. Just the blow gun stripped the paint with ease.

This is where the zinc-epoxy primer with urethane top coat will help.  It limits the damage.

The frame was originally silver 2 part urethane.  The first trip to the salt flats revealed the need for some frame mods and a different fairing. The silver paint  was media blasted off. New fairing mounts fabricated. Then the frame was painted with DuPont metal etch epoxy primer. Finally painted with DuPont red 2 part urethane.
