Hello  My name is Sheri and my husband started racing at El Mirage and Bonneville this year his name is Willie Buchta. He is racing in the 1000cc SC-PG and 1000cc SC-PF. He has set a few records and is doing pretty Dodge good, so good, he has given me the incentive to race a bike of my own.He will be doing most of the build(he said that all I have to do is sit back and look pretty). Soooo, here are some pics of my build(thanks to all of those out there that helped us out with our demise on uploading). Oh yeah, I will be racing a Buell Be-last in the 500cc 650cc and 750cc SC-PG and SC-PF classes. Looking forward to racing. I have met some of the best people the past year and can't wait to be a part of it all.I will post the pics as the work is done. We will also keep a tab on the cost and the time it takes for those of you who are curious.

Thanks...Sheri Buchta

Its kinda addictive this racing lark aint it, its nice to know that frames are still built by one guy in a garage with a bag of skill in one hand and a welding torch in the other,Good luck and maybe see you on the salt in a year or so.

Sheri,

         I think you found the right guy to build you a bike! I was fortunate enough to have met the both of you a few El Mirage races back and Willie is a true craftsman. I look forward to seeing the progress.

Wow, neat build pictures.  Make sure you keep posting them.  I guess I should start putting names on the the work I put in the lathe too. 

Now that we've seen the bearded half of the team are we going to get to meet the rider also??

Welcome to landracing.com and I hope to meet you guys this next year,

I just sorta felt "reedeemed"  seeing all of the "other stuff" stacked around---I am going to have to get a tubing bender though.  I relly look forward to following the build.

I kept a cost and time log, but NO ONE will ever see it, meaning the significant other! I did a SWAG (Note 1) before I started and as you can imagine, the budget was closer to double and the time . . . you know.

Note 1: WAG and SWAG are cousins. WAG is the usual Wild Acura Guess. SWAG is the much better Scientific Wild Acura Guess.

Dean, I am with you,,,
years ago---I had a Cessna 185----when I figured my taxes--I realized I could have chartered a Lear Jet for less than it had cost me to go everywher I did---I promised myself that never again would I EVER EVER add up what a TOY cost me---I can either Play or I can't---no need to make oneself miserable about what one is doing to have FUN..I have had to quit before and I am sure that I will again---or change the game!!!!!!!!!!lol

Hello All,
Here is the motor that we are putting in the bike. We bought a buell that was wrecked for 800.00 and we are going to use the motor, the battery, the voltage regulator and the master cylinders(both front and rear). We sold some other parts off of the bike for 200.00. Looks like a perfect fit...

Willie has no time for fishing. The only lake he will be visiting in the near future is El Mirage...Maybe 2009??? LSR records first.

At the rate he is building that I hope you have an approved helmet.  You might be riding the bike this weekend at El M,
