Still impressive on how far it would go before it gave up the ghost. Would a modern day bike be able to do the same?

Well older engines are lower stress, lower compression, lower rpm etc. so the engine parts can be further out of spec and still perform. That piston certainly gave every thing it had for the cause though. I'd have it on the shelf of honor in my garage.

NO!

And its not over now!!!!!






its got a cop motor, cop transmission, cop tires, cop suspension.

It was built before catalytic converters, so it runs on regular gas.


(I need to fix the cigarette lighter tho)




Why do I waste my time with TV and movies for entertainment when there are Doug posts to read?

I tried to redo my sig, but the new forum program wont let me, unless I delete what I have, & then I only get a little bit of space to write something.
So I just left it alone.
