Lets hope so Frosty. The salt needs more Brits. And good looking ones at that! I'm afraid I'm in the "looks, schmooks" category. No matter what I do it turns out ugly but trying to go fast is more important. I guess I'm one of those slob builders.

Don't sell yourself short Bill. Your innovation and wit, is one of the reasons why Bonneville is great. Sometimes, pretty doesn't work, and sometimes it does. I'm amazed at just the ideas that you've come up with. To see it work is a bonus. No major sponsors, just hard work and the will to try something different. Keep up the new ideas and go fast attitude.

Not even minor ones. But the Bonneville draw is strong. You figure a way there regardless. See you in August.

Cheer up Frosty. Right now in Riverside (10 p.m.) its 36. Will drop a good bit more before sunrise. We're dyin'!!! And there's a stack of idiots camped out in Pasadena waiting for the Rose Parade. 95 sounds wonderful right about now. I'm a total weenie when it comes to cold. Its supposed to be back up to the 70s by mid week. Maybe I'll et some of the mountain of work still to be done on the sidecar done.

Just read an article about Lectron carbs and it sounds like they would be a good fit for your bike. Far less moving parts then other carbs and would be pretty hassle free. I think you will be able to run them WFO for the Ohio mile then also turn around and run them for your everyday riding! I am persueded!

I got in the Lectron carbs today. They are super well built. I called to order, the president of the company answered the phone. Helped with the setup after a few bike spec. Questions. Gave me the option of where I want the chokes, fuel petcocks, ect. Had them 3 days later in nj. Try that with mikuni. Haven't run them yet, but so far they've been great.
