Default Re: Vintage Fuel Drag Bikes

Boris Murray told me was built for Sonny Routt. Sonny said it was too light and sold it through Kosman to Ray Masten who I bought it from about 15 years ago.
The fuel system is Hilborn pump to Offy 105 throttle bodies. Not sure how it was plumbed back when it ran so what you see is just a mock. You are probably curious about the plumbing connected to the near side fuel tank. In theory it will be used for starting.
I don't see it running at a track soon but we'll see.

John,
I read thru your build posts on "Motorcycle Vintage Eccentrics" and all I can say is WOW! Fixing one problem to have several new ones crop up. I know that feeling. Your workmanship and attention to detail is evident. I have not heard of plumbing up two parallel fuel systems (alcohol and nitro) to start and then run a bike. Seems like a lot of extra plumbing. My experience is to use an alcohol spray can to start/warm the engine and then again to clean out the nitro after warming/testing. You and Alp definitely know what you're doing on fuel engines, it just seems really different to me. Ed
