Ya . . . I've been working on mine.  175cc Blown Fuel Sidecar is Open.  Mine has no throttle adjustment, so I guess I'd have to just start it and hang on.  Gotta convert the back wheels to just one, I guess.  I'll check with Nortonist to figure out the firing order.

Setting the firing order on a single can be quite tricky.  Give me a shout when you're ready to do it.

  Speaking of Mopeds, My memory being heavly damaged by the 60's and 70's (ask Stainless), did  the SCTA not outlaw scooters (etal) in the pits at Speedweek?
  I couldn't find any mention in the rulebook, but seem to remember it in the letter that comes with your official entry.
                                                                     Thanx, Bob (who may have two Honda Spree's for sale cheap if my assumption is correct.

I could be wrong but I believe the ruling is you don't ride something that you don't have a license for.  I don't think there are any states that issue mini bike licenses to kids.  Also not aware of any states that issue go-kart licenses... but again, I could be wrong.

Bob, it was go-karts -- and any other vehicles that are so low that it'd be hard to see them from the driver's position in a race vehicle.  Mopeds are still okay (as far as I know), and pit bikes, and bicycles, and so on -- just not super-duper low riders.

Memory refresh is okay -- it brings such fine memories.  I think. rolleyes

How  about the idiot with the prop driven trike? About 3 feet tall and ready to chop some spectator to pieces. I want to throw a stick in that thing.

I have no horse in this race but what about all the 1960s mini bikes that were powered by Briggs & Stratton flatheads ? Inspectors have a tough job just figuring out what size bike makes it a motorcycle, quite a can of worms
