    I had the opportunity to attend the World Finals at the Bonneville Salts Flats earlier this month. While surfing the Land Racing Forum for more info on that event I ran across this build thread for an Indian done by a guy in Denmark (!):

    http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php/topic,5849.0.html

    The guy does REALLY nice work (see link and below). IIRC, he barely finished the bike and made it over to the BUB event this year but had problems with blown head gaskets. I'm sure he'll get it ironed out eventually.

    why do you need a massive front brake for the salt flats. I thought most bikes did away with front brakes for those runs? Rollie did anyhow.

    cool bike! agree about the front brake comment, but if it were mine i would leave it on too. that way it can leave the salt and hit the streets! :deal

    It looks like he wanted to use a set of Ceriani Forks from his...ahem...street bike, and the Guzzi 4-LS brake just came with it.

    So, it appears he has at least two absolutely wonderful motorbikes :bow

    what a cool bike! I hope he returns with it.
