:blink: This is going to be a monster! I'm really looking forward to watching this one come together. I guess the great thing is that you no doubt have plenty of reference material. Are you going to put some bike on the dyno's too?

I have seen this Dyno in action, I believe. I have seen some B.A. Biker want-a b's make fools of them selves on it!
But this will be cool to see you build.

Tommy.......actually ,I have another model truck coming in the mail......that is closer to Freightliner look.......the Peterbuilt will not be used for the cab part of the truck......I am using the Peterbuilt for parts only........I will still need to make some major modifications.......thanks.

John, this is sure to be a wild project for sure. Is this operation really based out of Ft. Lauderdale, and if so are they planning on attending Bike Week here that cranks up this weekend? I would love to see this in person.
