Lars
   The box is a steel Harley crateand we cover it with ply wood. It has been sent 2x before
  We've been told -manufactured wood- is ok
  Australia has verry strict quarenteen laws.
  Did you take the at the end of the road

Sleep? You don't have time for that.
You have a bike to assemble.

Hi Lars and everyone else,

The rest of us back in Copenhagen are very curious to get an update! How are things going, Lars?

Maybe someone on this forum could could could give an update on what's going on if Lars is having trouble getting online, and you happen to bump into him - and maybe even post a few pics?!? smiley

Have fun - we all hope to join next year!

I'm following the thread "Speedweek 2010" on Bonneville general chat here on this forum and I can only find 2 notes about Lars, reply #604 where mentioned he is putting the bike together, and reply #651 that he's desperate looking for Mikuni jets. Must be great conditions this year, records is slaughtered big time over there, every day! Love to be there but for Lars I figure there's a lot of mental stress beeing such a rushed and somewhat hyped build, with shortage of test time and all things new, getting rookie license and all that. I'm shure he's coping with all that pressure and is having a blast and I'm hoping the bike is holding together for at least one good run! Whatabout the other Indians over there? What start numbers do they have and as I'm a flathead fan anyone know of other flathead engined participans?

Kasper !!!!....håber du fik min email ?!! Har ikke kunne komme online før nu.


Short update ( more later when I get my pics organized and uploaded)

Everything has gone well and I've had a flipping FANTASTIC time !!!!!!!

Picked up the bike in SLC and rode straight to Bonneville
and unpacked the beast:



Those two guys helping me is the brothers George and Jim of the Tri-Mac Speedsters Team
who graciously invited me to share camp at the bend in the road,
and pit with them.
Man; I'm telling you; you couldn't ask for better company than those two guys.
Thank you, thank you, thank you George and Jim for your hospitality, for your help
and your just brilliant  funny and witty company !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



....and then you find yourself 5400 miles from home in a desert of salt, with a lump of metal,
going : "...what the hell have I got myself into.."




...but my 'new workshop' is just beauuuuuutiful:




...thaks to Sparky's friend Joey I got myself equipped with leathers and all
( PHEW it was HOT !!!)




...so I could do my rookie-run on Georges splendid little 100cc supercharged inter-cooled two-stroke.
This is George telling me: "..No funny stuff..you hear me ?!!...just give it all it's got..."



...and loo and behold: off I went down the salt YEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
and can now call myself a Bonneville Salt Flats Landspeed Racer ( or sum'thing like that)



What a feeling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Got the bike together after a series of expected unexpected problems, modifications
and general fooling around and got it into Tech Inspection



...who swamped around it, this being a class A Special Build that I do believe requires
extra scrueteny



...paperwork



I'll see you in tech
Graham

...indeed !  The approval was handed over by none other than Graham a.k.a. 'grumm'.



...except; to get it into the logbook it was required that I show up with the leathers etc.
but the rightful owner was using them at this time and because of unforeseen circumstances
he had to leave early this morning , and the deal about borrowing them this morning fell through.
Also I was supposed to show up with Georges support vehicle and CB and fire extinguisher equipment
but they also had to leave today.
I HAD an idea about running it today, but I was having trouble of getting the jets
and the timing right , so running will be at BUB in ten days.
Never mind; I had expected this outcome, I've had the time of my life here,
met a bunch of great great guys who helped me, seen some spectacular cars
in spectacular action
................................. and I ran on the salt .

FLIPPING BRILLIANTLY FANTASTIC !!!!!!

I'm going on a little tour and then back to the Salt...back to BUB.
Doesn't get any better than this.


More pic and stuff later.






Hope you don't mind lars
Not at all, my man.

I'm shure he's coping with all that pressure and is having a blast
...indeed. Indeed I am !

Lars,

Glad to hear you are having a good time.  cheers

"Got'Cha" was first run in 1974. Bill Temple entered both 2 clubs in 1976 with records in AA/BGR. At El Mirage 201.79 and Bonneville at 220.

In 1977 Greg Temple started driving "Got'Cha" and entered the El Mirage Dirty 2 club in 1979 @ 201.97. Greg went on to set two records at Bonneville, one in 1981 at 241.848, then in 1991 he set another record at 262.230

Bill and Greg were the first father and son to enter the El Mirage Dirty 2 club. They broke the D/BFR at Bonneville in 1981 @ 241 with top speed of 249. This record still stands today. In 1991 they set the A/BFR @ 262 which was later broke by Duane McKinney.

Lars, it looks like we are sort of the same size.  We will be at BUB and you can use my leathers etc. when I am not running.  We will be there on Tues.

It's amazing to see the saltcracker out of the workshop and placed into it's natural habitat on the salt-flats. It is obvious that this is it's true home, and I'm thinking you're gonna have trouble lassoing it back in the crate and getting it back to Copenhagen wink
