Re: vintage pics o' the day

It was a Manx engine in a road going featherbed. Started life as a Model 50. I had to move the clutch in 5/16" to line it up with the Manx engine sprocket. The trans was the stock trans.

Re: land speed racing, maine, 2019

Ouch!!! I hate to see that happen to any engine. Especially with all the work that went into it. I guess the post mortem (in due course) will reveal what happened. Congrats to your daughter.

Re: Let’s see your daily rider, (work truck) , or go to bike.

No road bike right now. Just a 12 year old Dodge.

Re: Gold found in barn

Not the BSA video but you're right. Can't beat the bark of a big single. I'm looking forward to hearing run.
