Thanks, folks.  Big relief tonight.....fitted the chain and spun the rear wheel up.  The chain run is dead smooth and straight with my 18/42 gear combo.  Heres' a pic from rear angle.  The seal panels around the radiators mate to the inside of the AirTech tailpiece.

We fixed a small exhaust leak, mounted chain guard, and it's ready for fit/finish work.

Regards, JimL

Thanks to Shaun Austin for the overnight paint job (big project).  Still need some trim paint, stickers, drain the tank, check valve lash....and finish the other bike. tongue

This was fun and (a little too much) exciting.  My first test ride had to be my first pass....there was no place to try it out at home.  It felt good running up to the 1 mile, so I tried working it up a bit.  I got into some odd handling and backed down some, resulting in a 136 pass and in to impound.  The return run felt good, so I ran up around 3/4 throttle and went easy at 145.  Wishing to make a more respectable record, I qualified on my own record with a difficult run that I thought was problems with the course.  The next morning I ran the edge and the bike felt perfect until about 10,500 RPM (still not full throttle).  About 1/8th mile from the 3, it felt like something kicked the front tire to the right.  I caught it and shoved back, but it did it all the way to the 3 and a little beyond.  My return at 147.846 gave me 144.360 for the record.

After the fact, I discovered rubber marks inside the front fender, left forward.  I didn't do any stiffening on the front fender, and I think it's folding sideways at speed (10,500 is about 152-155).  I'll do something different, and buy some higher gearing so I can use full throttle...this was all I had after the twin-engine project bombed and I'd had tiny sprockets made!

It all worked out ok, as the runs required exactly matched the available days off from work!

Here's a pic of Dan Wagner and I, after our records.
Regards, JimL

That would be good.  I think this class should be around 133-135 or so, to be more realistic.  I think 500's were going that fast 50-60 years ago, with just 2-valves and one cylinder.  I remember a Manx running over this speed in 1969, and current "vintage" race CB450s are pushing 150!

We still have some learnin' to do, it appears!
