thanks jr,
i have always wanted my own work space, dont watch tv so i have always thought why not make a space that makes me feel good every time im in it.
while our drag bikes are not the number they were in the golden yrs it never ceases to amaze me what we manage to achive down here with only 23 000 000 people (less than 2 or so of your large cities). we have a strong history and its sad that the greater population really have no idea of some world leading before and even now that call our little part of the world home....
this was the project i had to build for what i had in mind with my builds

VERY COOL project Ozzy!! I had a ex-fuel funny bike in my shop back in the 90's. The friend of mine just couldn't gather the funds to keep it alive. Being in Alaska it was limited for gathering any knowledge or resources. Sure was fun to tinker with though. It was a 1497 with a forward head, We converted the motor (cams and pistons) to a turbo/nitrous combo and it ran 7.20's at 180mph if the wind would let you go straight and stay on it. Welcome aboard and wish you the best!
