My first attempt at building a custom drag bike. Just trying to builds something different. I tried to put wiring everywhere. Tell me where i could do better. I can take better photos if you request.  Thanks

I don't know what to say here , Rustiacolour , other than an intial "WHOA !!"

Beautiful work !!


Speaking of Drag Bikes : a friend and former co-worker was telling me stories about the old Lions Drag Strip (his friend ran a Dana-prepped '67 Camaro there back in the day) , and how he ended up running *against* a home made Drag Bike in said 427 Camaro .

He and his friend were in the pits , in the dark , getting the Camaro ready for its return trip home , when , as he said : " this big group of mixed-ethnicity guys were walking toward us . The guy in the middle was absolutely huge and intimidating ! The muscle-bound guy says to us , 'you wanna run your car again so that we can get some track time on our club's bike ? Y'know ; a fun run !'" .

Ends up that the big dude was Big Willie Robinson and the Brotherhood of Los Angeles Street racers .

So , the Camaro lined-up against the bike , and when the green dropped , the bike hauled fanny  and was scary !


I can only imagine how much fun racing was in those days , seeing early drag bikes running at the same time as questionably-streetable cars !


Beautiful work there , Rustiacolour  :)
