yours truly and my 1946 Beeza ZB33 dirt tracker at a show here last weekend, the bike isn't quite done yet but I built it to race dirt track.









it has goldstar scrambler cams and a 7.5:1 piston to go in it, the carby on it now is a pre-war amal but i think i'l go for a Mk1 concentric or monoblock. rims are flanged 18" Akronts with a modified 8" half width up front, new hardchromed fork tubes with Eddy Dow dampner rods and progressive springs, lucas N1 maggy, 50's Triumph rear hub, KR750 harley bars, Triumph 4 spring clutch and everything else is just swapmeet finds. It took me 3 years to find all the parts and the last 2 months to put it together.

good god that's sexy. Anyone know how difficult it is to find xr750's these days? I know they only made them for racing, but god id love to get my hands on one.

if nothing else i would just build one out of an 883 even though im sure the power would be way insufficent

I think he's got a shot at it. The way he rode the Werner/Springsteen bike year before last was awesome. Once they get this one dialed in he'll be a force for sure

Yes it is. I spent a couple minutes drooling over it and , WOW! The obvious top shelf engineering input and attention to detail were spectacular.

I hope not. Spectators show up because they like seeing the dinosaur bikes battle it out. That being said, it is astounding how much 21st century wizardry and exotic material it takes to rival the ole restrictor plated XR-750.

The XR is bad ass no doubt, and The Mile is absolutey my favorite from of racing. However, I like seeing them challenged on occasion. Indy was telling this year in that either Mees or Halbert bitched over the PA that the Kawi was fast in the straight but couldn't hang in the turns. Who knows? I just hope the sport hangs on.

The year before Brian raced this bike, Luke Gough AMA # 62 rode and Skip Eaken built/tuned the bike and the motors in the Kawasaki that Brian Smith is racing now. The developed the bike and motors in the AMA Grandnational twins class throughout the 2011 season. Without Skip and Luke this bike would not have been close to where it is today .

I like all the brands of bikes and hope that we see more development as time goes on . Harleys are bitchin but if I build a GNC twins team it would be another brand besides Harley...

That was Halbert bitching about the speed of the Kawis and how it makes for more dangerous racing on the miles because the slower XRs are forced to chop pass in order to gain position.

Worked out just fine for "Slammin" Sammy at Indy, but he's no stranger to risky passes.
