I'm trying to piece something together Mark. Started with the bare chassis with no front end or wheels. Now I at least have a rolling chassis with a front fairing and body. I'm going to keep collecting parts until I can make a complete dragbike out of this thing. I'll get it done one day. I can't afford to buy one that race ready so I've got to build my own on a poor man's budget😁.

Lookin good frank

Trying to work out the correct ride height on this project so I can lower the forks. Will drop a dummy engine in it this week and hang a header off of it to see exactly how my ground clearance turn out. Need a minimum of 2" to be legal.

Decided to go fuel injection on this build. I won this Max Ecu controller in a raffle. I'm going to combine new and old technology on this project.

Jerry,

I hope to get this ready for the 2020 season. The plan is to make the Man Cup opener next April. Lots of work to do still. Plus we're in the middle of the 2019 race season so my budget isn't geared towards a new bike build right now. I'll continue to buy small pieces here and there in the interim to keep the progress going.

Damn Frank! Nice  :)

Decided it was time to pull an engine out of the corner that's been apart for about 10 years. I'm going to clean it up, have the head redone and freshen up the bottom end. I acquired a 5 speed auto recently and MTC is redoing a slider clutch basket for me to put in the engine.  I'll slowly get this monster back together with a deadline of August 2020.  The plan is to have it on the bike, and tested so I can compete in the 4.60 index class at XDA for the last race of the season.

Stock stroke GS 1100 crank with straight cut 1100 ratio gear. It was a hand clutch set up originally but I'm going to install a slider clutch when it goes back up.
