Mike, you never winged a thing!!!!.
That's some serious work you did and in short time too.

You're gifted and I'm glad you never wasted the talent.
 cheers

Thanks, Mike.

It appears I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go.

I spent a couple of weeks crossing over to BMST rules and then came the bad news last Monday.

This is just a big SUCK !  cry

I'm going to press on with the build anyhow.  One of my (many) personality flaws is that I just won't quit.  This will be the badass-est  100cc APS bike ever built even if it never turns a wheel.

Here's some pics of her all ready to go......................
(Note the exhaust pipe out of position - the result of the 4 or 5 falls I took while learning the proper launch technique.  Fortunately, I've only got a few inches to fall  grin.  All were at 1-2mph!  I've got it down pat now, though.

BTW, I moved my vacation time to make BMST but I can't move it again.  Now I've got a week off with nothing to do.
So, what the hell, I think I'm going to load up the bike and head to what's left of the salt just for pics.

Mike, the situation does suck and it pains me to see all the hard work put into all the projects, yours and others only to have the rug pulled.

That bike needs to go on a road show, be at auto shows etc. It needs to be seen.
Art is for everybody. You're an artist. It's original, well built and just plain awesome.

Things have a way of working out. Be positive and keep the faith. Trust me, the wheel does turn. cheers

BTW, I had I ride on my buddy's 350? 2 stroke Husky yesterday. Loved the feel, the sound etc but it wasn't my old semi works RM125A. All I can say is he has great brakes. grin grin grin grin

Thanks, I am thinking of building a APS as well, maybe for 2017, not sure if I will use glass or aluminum. Your paint scheme looks professional, I always loved the Gulf colors.
Don't you wanna bring it to El Mirage in November, it is a 2-3 day event.

Sure!  I'd love to, but my vacation days can't be changed any more.  Besides there's the whole club membership thing and it's a 3100 mile round trip for a 2 day event.
That makes me wonder about my little bike's future (and mine).  Besides Bonneville, there's no place else that's practical to go to.  I was on the salt yesterday and it was a pretty sad scene.  Land's end would turn into a quagmire in no time if a big event were to be held.  100' out, the salt's only an inch thick.  It's a sad situation.

Anyhow, here's some bike pics from Sunday morning..............

Mike, the bike looks awesome!  cheers cheers cheers

Don't give up on the salt yet. I have a feeling Mother Nature may have a few surprises up her sleeve yet plus I think the situation over the last couple of years may cause a lot more action to restore at least part of the salt to at least some of its former glory.

Great photos!  Interestingly, from a distance, the salt looks better than it did last year at BMST.  We drove at least 2 miles thru the lake to get to the pits then.  Maybe there's hope, yet.

Mike, You broke a record without even turning a wheel in anger.
That's my honest heart felt opinion.

That must be the best looking bike I've seen on this forum.

Build of the season, period. The photos are also awesome.

You're my inspiration. God Bless you.

Listen to Pete!!!! He's an old hand. cheers

The nice thing about the little bikes is it does not take a lot of real estate to get them up to top speed.  Airport runways, El Mirage, or beach races all are fun and opportunities.
