And.......Remember Lars.....put some safety wire around the rubber hand-grips on the throttle....in the Bonneville heat they may get loose on you, so when you get ready for your big run the grips only are turning........(been there done that)

Looking better and better with every update Lars.

It's definitely two wheeled, functional art at it's best!

Octane  you will not need a front brake--but you will have to move your number plate in front of the rear axle
OK thanks,
and BTW there's something about the size of the numbers/letters, as well, I think.
Still waiting for the rule-book.

Quote
you will run in A- VBF or A- VBG  650 cc  in the 2010 rule book there are no records in either class   willie buchta
Well, well: about time someone come set that record ....mmmmm....now who would want to do that

AND....Remember Lars......the leathers that are legal for BUB (and every other M/C sanctioning org. in the world) will NOT be legal for BNI.........

The plan is to rent a van for the period, so that should take care of the need to transport the bike to the course
and provide me with a place to sleep during Speed Week.
As for the 'crew' to run the van etc. I'll try and hook up with someone. I've got plans.


Thanks a lot for your kind words, and thanks a lot for all the info Bak !

And.......Remember Lars.....put some safety wire around the rubber hand-grips on the throttle....in the Bonneville heat they may get loose on you, so when you get ready for your big run the grips only are turning........(been there done that)
Auch, that sound like one hell of an unpleasant experience.
Must say I usually glue my rubber using hair-spray.
Lubes and makes it easy to attach them...then it dries and turns to a rather effective glue.

Lars you won't be stuck for a crew.   I'm planning on being there and I can chase you.  I ,hopefully, will for the first time have an "actual" crew there so we will take care of you.  Tick that off you list.

Happy to see things are moving along well for you, and your nicely designed Indian. smiley
After a few days at the BUB speed trials you will hopefully be seeing me. grin

I'll say a prayer for productive days from now until race time.

Lars, you might want to send Tom Evans an email and ask some of these questions with pics. that  have been brought up now. I mentioned the charger belt guard earlier and someone said it was fine but it'd be easier to find out now. You also have to have your steering limited to 15 degrees each way. A total of 30 deg. steering lock. You can't use the steering dampner to accomplish this either. I'm not sure what Bob see's that he doesn't like on the rear fender but the number plates are a definate no no. See ya on the salt...

On the rear fender........I have no problem with it......However, I am not the Tech. person doing the inspection........I had a short fender (behind the seat) like that on one of my Tri.'s back in the 1980's
and Tom suggested for me to change it and make it longer.......Yes, the same Tom Evans back then......
Tom has been in Tech. for a very, very, very ,very long time......and he does a outstanding job and not much in the area's of safety slips by him.....................................................................................

PS. To this day Tom cusses me out for bringing sidecars into LSR.....(Just kidding)  Tom has been very helpfull in making todays LSR sidecars safe for both SCTA/BNI and the BUB........................................
As you can tell Tom is one of my "Heroes".........you should have seen the Supercharged Harley he raced back in the 1970's........ it was very fast.........

THANK YOU SO MUCH BILL!!!
I'm very grateful for your kind offer !
I'll do my best not to stand in the way

This is great news !

Ticked that off my list.

I've also been invited to share camp at the Bend in The Road
with another guy who I'm in contact with
so I'm kind of settled now.


THANKS !!!!
The world is still a good place
with good people

Thanks you Drew !
If some of you don't know:
Drew runs the tech. inspection at BUB and has been VERY helpful
answering all my silly questions regarding the rule and how to make my bike
comply with them

Lars, you might want to send Tom Evans an email and ask some of these questions with pics. that  have been brought up now. I mentioned the charger belt guard earlier and someone said it was fine but it'd be easier to find out now. You also have to have your steering limited to 15 degrees each way.

Larry   cheers
Thanks Larry.
I was just about to ask if there is one person to whom one can direct
questions regarding the S.C.T.A. rules.
How do I contact Tom Evans ?

Regarding the belt cover: it has been OK'ed by Drew for the BUB event
but then again S.C.T.A. could be different of cause.

If needed, I have these thingies ready
from which I can make some sort of 'grill' on the belt-cover



I do know about the 15/15 degree steering rule , the damper thing, and the number plates, but I'll
do my homework properly the minute the rule-book turns up.

On the rear fender........I have no problem with it......However, I am not the Tech. person doing the inspection........I had a short fender (behind the seat) like that on one of my Tri.'s back in the 1980's
and Tom suggested for me to change it and make it longer.......Yes, the same Tom Evans back then......
Tom has been in Tech. for a very, very, very ,very long time......and he does a outstanding job and not much in the area's of safety slips by him.....................................................................................

As you can tell Tom is one of my "Heroes".........you should have seen the Supercharged Harley he raced back in the 1970's........ it was very fast.........
The thing is that running BUB in my class means that the rear fender
can NOT extend back any longer.
For Special Construction Class ( A ) the rules stipulates:
"...fenders...may not extend beyond the center-line of...rear axle..."

but if the S.C.T.A. are different I guess I'll just make a removable extension.

Been working on the forks:

disassembled the forks off my BSA



and finally got to use this funny looking tool to rip out the seals




Took the parts out to my friends place where Jakob



...cut down the tubes and made new threads inside them
so they are now ready for assembly




SUZUKI parts for the rear wheel finally arrived from Holland




new sprocket bolts / locks and the missing 3 rubber-dampers




The brake/lining is brand new , so that's good




I was thinking, as the bike has no stand, that it would be nice to have a
( don't know the proper English term ) light-weight quick-stand made in aluminum
that I can bring with me.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm....if only I could fabricate and weld aluminum.

But HEEEEY ...I forgot....!...I can !

So I did

.-)



This is my third and so far most "complicated" part I've ever alu-welded.
Works quite well:

FLIP---> LIFTS---> LOCKS





Yep; the bike is FINALLY off the work-bench .
I've got around the weigh is and it weights in at 156 kg --> 343 pounds.
That's not bad.

Having the bike on the bench for such a LONG time I had forgotten how
low it actually is:



Light and low is GOOD !


Dragged the bike outside the other day to take a few pics.
Unfortunately the the sky was heavily grey-black so the bike looks
kind'a dull, but hell; it's starting to like a BIKE, isn't it














Getting there...it'll be ready soon





...knock on wood !
