Wow, and double Wow...
The time machine is working in Kent's shop... That thing is ready to go back to the salt (circa late 60s - 70s rules)  Kent, nice resto by you and your crew.

Can someone give us some of this bike's history? When it ran, how fast, records set?

Kent, I just want to thank you and your wife for at great little evening last night. The vesco bike is awesome, alittle before my time, but not by much. Also a big thanks from my boys Carson and Logan (7 1/2 & 6 1/2 yrs old) They just might be the only non Vesco's to sit in the riders sit, and for Scott for snapping some photos for me. This will surely help pass some of their dad's and grandpa's racing enthusiasum down the line.
For those could not make it down to AirTech's shop yesterday missed out on a beautiful resteration job, my hats off to Kent and crew for a top notch job. Thanks Eric Eyres

thanks Eric.... i think your boys had tons of fun feeding my dogs all those potato chips, glad you were able to make it up.. and thanks to all that did make it over, Jim and Bill latin, Jack Dolan, Van & Cathy Butler, Bob Moreland, Scott Stites, Fritz & Jason Kott , Randy & Terri Nelson, all the SDRC guys that showed, and all the local freinds that showed.. We went through 12 pizza's, 5 bags of candy and a crap load of beer and soda... It was a pretty good time... i finaly chased Keith lynas, Danno, and Paul out around 11pm...... the liner came out fantastic, i dont want to let her go...but wait, were not done yet...today we start building the crate....stay tuned....
