Many thanks to Dunlop, who is going to be helping out the race effort with some fresh tires for the flathead. Also, peeled this off the preunit today… probably the original tire on the rim.

BONNEVILLE SPEEDWEEK AND LAND SPEED

After the hillclimb I was hooked… it’s time to race.  All of this engine prep has been going towards building one of the fastest flathead Harley’s around.  I’ll need all the help I can get, so spread the word to your friends.  I’ll be getting some t-shirts together for sale soon!

I would like to immediately thank the good folks at:

Hoodzpah for the logo and support!

The Shop in Ventura for the motor tutelage and parts.

Dunlop for the tires.

Four Aces Cycles for crash coursing me in LSR.

Justin Donais and Samson Hatae for their artistic abilities!

Hell on Wheels for letting me pretend like I’m racing.

… more to come.

Fortunate enough to live down the street from the genuine article, Huggy Bear Dave Hansen, who is imparting a serious amount of old school racer knowledge on me, and saving me a few bucks in machining labor.

I’m all about doing everything I can with my own hands, but sometimes it is best to learn and work with the guys who know the ropes. Dave from The Shop has been kind enough to take me under his wing and show me a thing or two.

While BA-Moto and I have been friends for a long time, and helped me get rolling on two wheels in the first place years ago, this is one of the rare times we’ve been pitted against one another in a racing situation.  This about sums up my relationship with Nate Hudson, el presidente.

While I had one of the oldest bikes of the bunch, the flathead couldn’t conquer the hill on Sunday.  Unfortunate, but well worth the butterflies I had all day. Photo : Samson Hatae

The Dangers are another group of Southern CA kids showing up and testing themselves.  Maybe too much skin for a hot pipe and a steep climb, but always good for a laugh. Photo : Scott Toepfer

Hell on Wheels MC has been getting guys out to the line for a few years now, getting us to push our ill intentions against one another. Mike, friend of Trophy Motorcycles in San Diego, slugged his rigid Triumph to the top. Photo : Samson Hatae
