Lars (Octane) put a supercharger on an Indian single a couple of years back. It is wealth of knowledge.

OMG, what a magnificent bike.  I am awed from the get-go.  I hope mine is half as nice.

Thanks for the good idea, Stainless.  You had the state wrong, though. . . huh

Patrick is a forum friend of mine.  Super nice, and very knowledgeable, guy.  I hope to meet, and out-run him, in 2017.  I thought we would be in different classes, but now that I know I cannot modify my engine frame loop, and depending on how much I have to change my original design, we may not be.

Nobals, ND?  Sounds better than Burgaw, NC.

Hi Jim,

Welcome here, you're in good company!

Personally, I think a 72 frame is stretching a bit the vintage cut off date, but you never know until you ask and get the answer from the horse's mouth...

One could say a 100,000,000 year old dinausaur is the same family as a 200,000,000 one ; O )

Patrick

PS: Thanks Graham in Aus for pointing me towards this thread!!! I'm well and looking forward to saving some money and come again to Speed Week 2017... Richard is also tempted by another trip... What do you think? I'd love to have the old 2013 crew together, we did sterling work in that short space of time despite the problems... and a 121.775mph brass plaque to boast about : 0 )

I think an argument can be made that the 1972 frame offers no advantage in strength, weight, stability etc. over the original 1956 frame except the longer (1.5"?) wheelbase. IIRC the KHK engine is a bolt-in in the 1972 frame, and a 1972 XL engine same in the 1956 frame.

I hope you are right, Panic.  If I have to replace it, it is what I call a useless cost.  Mind you, I will do so if required.  Finding a K Model frame isn't going to be easy by any means, nor cheap.  So be it.  I chose to chase the dragon.

Jim cheers

Well I reread vintage under engine classes section and Modified.... No where I see that the years have to match, modified says same manufacturer.  Of course the only opinion that counts is the SCTA Motorcycle committee.

That is encouraging, Stainless.  I am still awaiting a reply to my email.  The break has given me more time to think about the repositioning of my blower. 

I need to spend some serious quality time with the rules book.  I had planned to cut the frame loop last week, but my GrassHopper mower cratered and I have been tweeking its limp carb ever since.  Turned out to be a swollen float hitting the edge of the bowl.  Lucky for me the Chinese make such crappy floats.  I suspect the culprit is Seafoam.

Jim cheers

Jim, I hope you got three rulebooks.  One for the coffee table, one for the shop, and one for the back of the toilet.

You'll soon discover that I'm not really kidding -- having one right at hand is always good. grin
