So, I am just an all round petrol head. And I figure the best way to introduce myself properly is to show you what I get up to
Just over 2 years ago I started another project, and its still not finished
38deg rake, 2" up, 2" out and 4" overs
127" Ultima Black Gem engine (140bhp, 145lbft tq)
Ultima 6 speed LSD tranny
240 rear tyre, 140 front
Twin disc fronts with Wilwood calipers and brakester rear
Some pics from the build up
It's been a long old slog to get it done if I am honest. It's also cost way more than it should have done, I dread to think how much it would have been if I hadn't made as much of it myself.
The paint was done by a mate, and a stunning job it is too. Looks black in dull light, has red candy in in sunlight then takes on a whole dark cherry red in really bright sun.
Also dread to think the hours I have ploughed in as well. Every little thing has to look good as its all on show, and I am more used to playing with cars than bikes. Its been great, will be doing another at some point. Not for a while though :
