Aside from that seems to be holding up well.


The tank had multiple cracks. There won’t be any slag after I Tig it.

For cheap that might be a different story!!! I’d do some more research on it if it were me, it was close and it’s priced right. A respected gentleman on fxxkbook has a 91” stroker, 89” with just a bigger bore and it runs 9.70s/8.80s all day long.

Don’t forget. Cost to build vs. cost to race. IMO lose weight first, cheaper horsepower to a point. There’s always a next step. Weigh the bike and put it on a diet first, might suprise you how much horsepower you can find.

Well said Mac. I could probably drop a few more on mine.
