    Interesting bike.

    Show was alot smaller than the last few years. It used to occupy 4 buildings and now just down to two. But it was nice to see Triumph there, but Ducati failed to show. Good thing a local dealer brought some KTMs and Ducs.

    My friend invited me to the Arcane Auto Society Meet today. We rode in his Austin Cambridge and followed his friend's Fiat 500 to San Francisco. We arrived in the SOMA district of the city.

    People had bikes parked around, but no prices so one would assume they weren't for sale.

    While checking out CL, I came across this. wow.

    1954 Hudson Wasp - modified for racing

    Modifications include:
    suspension: huge anti-roll bars, additional leaf springs
    brakes: high-quality adjustable-bias disc disc brakes,
    rear end: full floater 9" Ford rear end
    driveshaft, muncie 4 speed transmission, flywheel, clutch
    engine: high compression head
    electrical: 12 volt electrical, ignition system. wiring, cutoff switch
    12 point cage, gauges

    Work is great quality, performed by a professional, ex-Indy mechanic; it's fairly well documented - too detailed to post. I can provide it to interested people. You can see some photos at the website: http://uncommonengineering.com/carconstruction.html (it's the second vehicle featured on that web page).
