Yup. It was ridden by Shane Vance in the series. The previous owner bought it after the series ended in 2005 at the Indianapolis mile. He put 1200 Jugs on it and used it for mud drag racing till his club banned it because it wasn't street legal (really because it was unfairly fast). After that it sat in his shop for years till I bought it this January. It was finally delivered in March, and I currently have it completely torn down for some motor/trans mods and installation of an electrical system. It does not have any electrical system, except for the battery, starter, and ignition (not even a charging system). I did run it a little in the 1200 config and it was scary fast. It had 10:1 Wiseco pistons in it and .536 lift cams. Most of what made it scary though was the 25 tooth XR-750 crank sprocket which made it a wheelie machine.

Saw this in Kilroy's bar in St. louis while in town for a Cardinals game this weekend. There was also a Bultaco and an XR 750 but my pics were stinky because of the light streaming in the windows

I can't wait to get it on the road. Unfortunately I don't think it will be before the end of the summer. I definitely have a ton of day trips planned for it including a bunch of trail riding in George Washington National Forest in VA and in the state WMA in Allegheny County, MD. The thing is a beast, it wants to lift the front tire going into 3rd! Here is a link to a video from when I first started it:

AWESOME! Can't wait to see more of this bike....

The drive is a Comet torque converter setup. After I got it home, I looked on DieselBike.net a bit, but really only looked for throttle info, and RPM range. Looking at charts I have, I believe it is geared for the 55-60MPH range. Dad was thinking is should get 130MPG+. I just finished the jackshaft redesign process. I am throwing it back together to test it out, then I'll finish it this winter. I am going to wire it, replace the brake cables, replace the tires, and hopefully replace the fuel tank and rear fender. I'd like to use a Husky or Triumph tank.



This is BITCHIN'!

I found the Champion Yamaha Twin auction here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Yamah...item41674a52f0

Oh, to keep on topic:
I took this photo of my brother in 1974 during the 250 Expert race at Sidewinder Speedway in Kingman, AZ. He is riding a very unique bike, a 250cc Bultaco Astro engine in a Bultaco Sherpa S 200 chassis.
Note: no gloves... he was nuts. Mixed nuts, natural talent mix with nuts!!!
He had the style of a speedway racer, pitching the bike into the corners so sideways that the competition didn't have a chance of passing him... Lord, I hated him for that!



Cheers,
Mark
