Gifford, race a bike.  You will be in the company of lots of other half broke folks.  You do not need a garage to build one.  Heck, I built a Matchless on the coffee table in the parlor years ago.  I do not do it now, though.  My wife had something to say about that.

I can see it now, I'm 6' & north of 325, I put on the leathers and walk out my front door (I live 3 house off the beach) and someone will stick me with a harpoon.  Besides, I had to many close calls on my Harley when I move to California, that I sold it.  I'm not ready yet to get on another bike.

....and they were a dam site easier to haul around and build than a Lakester shocked  ---the throphy was the same size  cheers

Hauling one around won't be an issue if I keep it under 200" wheelbase, I've still got a 28' enclosed trailer from my previous racing venture.

Rich,

I never contacted you, but I did give your Vega a passing thought.

You might think again -- it's a hell of a deal.

Getting in it may be an incentive to lose some of that 300+#'s.

I'd call that double dipping. A nice car and a weight reduction program all in one package.

Look for the positives in this deal.

On the other hand, if you build one yourself I guarantee you will lose weight.

No money for food and no time to eat.
