    Matt & Kelly George are some of what Dirt Track is made of.
    They are second generation of some of the finest Motorcycle people around!
    Matt makes MAX Leathers and Kelly makes Hot Shoe Steel shoes.
    Together have done their best to promote and preserve dirt tracking in the midwest.
    If you have ever ridden one of their races, you already know they groom a race track better than anyone else Period!
    AMA could take some pointers from these boys!

    If I had some prints made, would you choose the white or dark background?

    Feel free to PM me so we don't bog down this nice thread. :freaky

    I'd buy a print in white.
    You have some amazing talent, you should consider doing some more iconic bikes!

    Thanks for the kind words.
    I would love to do a Trackmaster Triumph.
    I wonder if Donzilla has a photo that I could work from?
    It only takes about a month to draw one. :wink:

    Thanks.
    I really appreciate the help, but I have some requirements.
    • I need a copyright-free image to work form.
    • I require a very large image file.
    • A straight-on side shot would work very nice if I do the prints as a series.

    This is easier to accomplish with a production motorcycle.
    Much harder to pull off with a hand built bike.

    Thanks again. :evil

    I wandered through the pits at the Indy Mile last weekend.
    Here are some of the new school of thought bikes.

    [​IMG]

    EX 650, there were 3 distinct frame styles for these.^ This is one of the side mount cantilever monoshocks , no linkage.


    [​IMG]

    Verticle monoshock with bottom linkage.


    [​IMG]

    Central monoshock , no linkage. This is the 2nd place bike of Bryan Smith.

    Then the Ducati that Jake Johnson had me on my feet with for the first part of the race.

    I was hoping , but, not to be on this night.

    This Triumph made the main.

    Shayna Texter's Factory bike blew in a heat race.Tough night for her.

    The Marquez livery bike that he didn't ride. Scared handelers ?

    [​IMG]

    One of the Harley -Davidson XR750's ,pretty much the Standard of Excellance for 30 years. And just when you think they're fadeing out , they come back STRONG and win this race pulling away. Kenny Coolbeth rode like a man on a mission !
    An XR also came in 3rd. I guess you can postpone the retirement party.

    One more ,'cause it's Olds Cool.

    SO much cool stuff!! Is it just me, or do the laced wheels on aluminum rims with flat-track tires look so damned cool that I want that look for a street bike! I have always thought the combo of those wheels/tires on a big single or twin on a short wheelbase tracker style just oozes power and speed.

    After the 2013 Night Before the Indy Mile, I decided this was something I had to try. Here is the bike I started with, a '68 DT1 frame with a later reed engine and a lot of Suzuki parts.

    Here it is almost done. Just need some fine tuning and number plates.
