Default Track Bike Build

I'm just going to photo dump in here occasionally as I build. Not much for talking my way through a build so this is perfect!

1986 Sportster 883xl
R1 Front end
Elka 16" Rear shocks
Ninja 250r rear wheel (with cush drive!)
Pirelli Supercorsa tires

It’s the thought that counts! I’m enjoying just the thought of a track bike build, thank you!

Default Motor Build Time

Got the motor pulled apart a last week and sent the heads off to Hammer Performance. I was hoping to get everything back soon enough to make the BRL Race at Sonoma, but looks like that will be a no go.

Default Chansikle Rear Sets

Of course my Rear Sets showed up as soon as I pulled the motor apart.
Install was easy enough, and I went with the GP shift which is more rigid and better for track use. Can't wait to try these out on the track.
