Impressive

Do you have any pictures of CNCed blockoff plates.

I assume there will be external oil pump? How is oiling solved ?

Large external dry sump pump Mirko. Feed is through the main galley from the oil filter area. Pick up at the back/bottom of the engine. There is a "snorkel" fitting that bolts to the lower backing plate and the lower engine case.

Mike,

Just spent most of the evening reading the post after you brought it to my attention.  Unbelievable workmanship I must say!!  There's blueprints and then there's divine intervention ;)

OK guys the AT&SF is in the final stages of building and we are only waiting on the clutch.
here's what I heard from Russ yesterday.

Almost all in GA and the chassis appears to mate up well with the engine pod. I have a pic I can share to follow. The clutch is being rebuilt here by Crower ( I only had a partial Assy as it was raided for the Sorcerer etc) . Plan is to show up in Valdosta with a fairly complete if not running, bike or two.

So that's it guys but in respect of the fact that you haven't been told where it is, well I'm guessing Russ and the guy that has it don't really want people knowing.
The guy doing the work has a business to run and guessing again, he won't want every Tom Dick and Harry going round there asking questions and wanting to see the bike.

Here's a couple of pics of the bike but if you do recognise the workshop, please keep it to yourselves.

I guess the opening sentence in the recent facebook post by Russ through me off.    "Continued progress on both Top Fuel bikes at Robert Prayther’s shop."   ???
