Re: NKG spark plugs?

Hey, it wasn't "snuck" in. Ryan did it first when he ran the story of our bike 4 years ago on this forum. The only "Jap" piece on the bike is the engine. The rest is 100% hand built. I guess that,...

Re: NKG spark plugs?

We needed a fairly cold, side electrode plug for our little Honda because of the compression, and high nitro % we ran. Back in the 60's NGK made the only plugs of that type available. We never had a...

Re: Bonneville & LSR Update

Wow, another 1000RPM just with a different megaphone! My engine would blow up with another 1000rpm. But I think you are right about the longer megaphone working better at high rpm.[/QUOTE]

Re: Bonneville & LSR Update

The long slim megaphones generally work better at higher RPM's. Depends on the cam, but our Honda gained almost 1000 RPM's at Bonneville with this CR 110 style megaphone over a short Bates...

Re: Video of World's Fastest Indian Running

Burt set his records on straight methanol. The one time someone gave him some fuel with nitro he fried the pistons. On full rich, his carb would not flow enough fuel to keep it from running too lean....

Re: Vintage Fuel Drag Bikes

Love your story. Yes, nitro is very addicting. Once you learn it, anything will run faster. Our little 100cc Honda ran 77mph on the salt on gas. After a year and a half learning curve, we went back...

Re: Two Kids On The Salt

Better in the museum than collecting dust in my garage. And, it's only 10 minutes from home. I can visit anytime. :)

Re: Two Kids On The Salt

At 45 years old, she has earned a good retirement. She's in good company.

Re: Sidecar record at El Mirage

For sure, not a boring thread Bill! Very interesting stuff.

If there is another side car at El Mirage, it won't be us. We're done. We restored it, showed it, and ran it. It's going into the NHRA...

Re: Sidecar record at El Mirage

Beautiful machine work on the wheel Bill. 10% of the bike's weight on the side car? Maybe I shoud build a side car for our little Honda. We'd only need 11lbs on the wheel. :)

Re: Amal alcohol conversion

The 276 remote float Amal on our little Honda is set up to run up to 80% nitro. We started with straight alky in '68, and learned as we went. 3/8" line to the bowl is enough flow for our 100cc motor....

Re: Vintage Fuel Drag Bikes

Same guys, same bike, 41 years later. It is a fueler, and it was also a drag bike. Got the trophy from LIONS on 7/20/69 to prove it.
