M&H flat bottom slick
« on: November 30, 2020, 11:34:07 pm »
 Has anybody ever ridden on an old style flat bottom drag slick?  I'd love to hear about getting off the end of the track and around the pits on it.
  I had a beautiful 16" rim and a junky one with stainless spokes so I combined the two and put on an old 16 x 5" M&H a friend used one weekend to race his sportster. I thought it would look good at a show if I ever get the old stroker motor drag bike back together.  Too old to race (me and the tire) but looks cool.

When I rode the Nutcracker injected D&K frame laydown bike it had the flat slick. Turning was something it already didn't like doing, and when you got a little leaned over it felt like I was gonna fall off. But hook up it did, that's how the bike got it's name... :o
